Melania went on to challenge the media to cover stories that could help someone or save lives. It is unclear if the media will listen to the First Lady.
First Lady Melania Trump wrapped up her "Be Best" tour by telling the media to just be better.
The first lady made the remarks during a town hall-style discussion in Las Vegas about the opioid epidemic that claimed nearly 48,000 American lives in 2017.
Melania said she wished the media would spend as much time highlighting the heartbreaking crisis as it does "idle gossip or trivial stories."
The first lady suggested the epidemic should be leading the news when asked what else the media could do.
