Melania Trump is at it again.
On Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump took a trip to Nashville to visit the children born addicted to opioids.
The First Lady’s visit to Tennessee was part of her “Be Best” program.
The children she visited on Tuesday were born to mothers with an opioid addiction.
Sadly, these children were addicted as well when they were born.
Melania shared several tender moments with the children.
She seemed to take to one little girl in particular, Essence Overton.
Essence was all decked out in pink and even had her nails done.
She and the First Lady compared manicures, to little Essence’s delight.
Melania’s “mothering” skills were on full display as she sat on the floor to play with the children before leaving…

Out of Sight
Away from the cameras, Melania spent considerable time with an 8-day-old baby as well as the child’s parents.
While not identified by name, we do know the mother is 22-years-old and the father is 28-years-old.
Melania reportedly held the baby for some time as well as having a heart-to-heart with the young couple.
Stephanie Grisham, the First Lady’s spokesperson, stated, “They had a pretty emotional meeting.”
Tennessee is one of the states hardest hit by the opioid epidemic in this country.
Because of the problem, more and more babies are being born addicted, actually filling up care units faster than they can be treated.
President Trump has made the epidemic a priority for his administration, but there is still a lot of work to be done to get it under control.
