Here is a taste of the Lynchburg News & Advance piece on Melania Trump’s recent visit to Liberty University:
At Liberty University Wednesday, First Lady Melania Trump called opioid addiction “an illness that has truly taken hold of our country” and said the public needs to show compassion to those suffering from the disease.
Trump was the marquee speaker on a high-powered town hall panel that also included U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar II during a special convocation that also served as a pilot television show for political commentator Eric Bolling’s partnership with Sinclair Broadcast Group…
The audience of about 11,000 didn’t need the cue when Trump took the stage Wednesday. She received a standing ovation, with screams of “We love you Melania” echoing through the crowd, several of whom wore “Make America Great Again” hats or T-shirts supporting the president.
LU freshman Alexis Anello said she couldn’t wait for the first lady to take the stage.
“We wanted to get here as early as possible to get seats,” she said before the event. “I appreciate everything her and the president stand for, especially with our Christian worldview — they really support it.”
