The First Lady, Melania Trump made her first solo trip to Capitol Hill where she appeared with various lawmakers and senior White House officials. Melania, 49, addressed the opioid epidemic as part of her Be Best campaign while at the event. But she ignored one reporter who asked “how is the impeachment inquiry affecting you and your family?”, according to Yahoo news.
Following the visit, Melania wrote on Twitter: “Thank you to members of Congress who joined me today for a discussion re the #SUPPORTAct, signed last year as the largest piece of legislation on a single drug crisis yet.
“Your efforts in this opioid fight are instrumental & we’ll continue working on this important issue BeBest.”
The post caught the attention of Melania’s critics who were quick to air their disdain of the First Lady and her work.
One Twitter user, Marilyn, responded to Melania’s post.
She wrote: “Just another PR stunt, no substance.”
Another Twitter user posted: “Drug crisis? What about the Trump crisis?”
Lisa Leary Gertz said: “Can’t the Trumps do anything without congratulating themselves? Narcissistic.”
Other social media users questioned Melania’s role in tackling the drug issue.
It comes as President Trump is facing an uphill battle against House Democrats in impeachment proceedings, as the House of Representatives continues its investigations.
The proceedings have seen an outcry of support for the President who has insisted the ongoing investigations are “a lynching”. However, the latest polls suggest support for Mr Trump’s impeachment has surged among Americans.
The latest poll from Quinnipiac University found some 51 percent of nationwide US voters approve the House’s inquiry into President Trump.
In comparison, 45 percent of people were found to disagree with the investigation.
