Melania Trump defends kids who booed her speech

Melania Trump has defended the rights of teenagers who booed her during a speech in Baltimore – a place her husband called “rat and rodent infested”.

The first lady was in the city for a youth summit and took to the stage to urge students to avoid drugs.

However, she was met by a mix of boos and cheers, and the audience was noisy throughout her five-minute address.

Soon after arriving back at the White House, Mrs Trump released a statement defending the importance of freedom of speech and reaffirming her commitment to warning about drugs.

“We live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion, but the fact is we have a serious crisis in our country and I remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly consequences of drug abuse,” she said.
