The first lady said she and Kornhauser-Duda would continue an ongoing conversation about what children face in today in both the U.S. and Poland, including the drug problems that impact teens and adults.

Melania Trump’s BeBest initiiative adresses the opioid crisis and works with families and youth to fight the stigma associated with addiction to encourage teens to get help.
Trump praised his wife for her work and attributed it in part to her love for son Barron, now 13. ‘I really think that we owe a lot to the first lady,’ he said.
Melania Trump usually stays out of the spotlight. She will also address the upcoming June 18 rally in Florida where President Trump will officially launch his re-election campaign.
