Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has held a contest that awards its victor with the honor of presenting their tree to the first family and will serve as a centerpiece for Christmas decorations in the Blue Room of the White House.

More than 2,500 middle and high school students were scheduled to participate in Baltimore's largest youth summit on opioid awareness but the auditorium was about half full. There she was met with heckling that, according to CNN, lasted for about one minute.

First lady Melania Trump was welcomed to the stage at an opioid awareness summit in Baltimore on Tuesday with some cheers, but also a loud chorus of boos that continued for nearly a minute.

Mrs. Trump says drug abuse and addiction are "universal issues" that don't discriminate.

The event was organized as part of Trump's "Be Best" campaign, which focuses on online safety and opioid abuse, and was co-sponsored by the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Hadid is friends with Hailey Baldwin , Gomez's other ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's wife, and may want to show solidarity. Meanwhile, Selena dated The Weeknd during a break from Bella from January 2017 to October 2017.

Students simultaneously booed and cheered her introduction.

Students also talked loudly over her when she addressed them.

The goal is to help educate students, teachers and parents about opioid use and misuse.

She urged anyone now grappling with addiction to ask someone for help.

"If your president husband calls the city "a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live" and then you hold an "anti-bullying" event there, on behalf of the White House, honestly, what do you expect?"
