• Melania Trump has once again been accused of lying
  •  The FLOTUS posted misleading information on Twitter
  • Melania Trump lied about life expectancy in the US 

Melania Trump has just been accused of lying yet again.

On her Twitter account, the FLOTUS gave her millions of followers a confusing update.

“For the first time in 29 years, drug overdose deaths have dropped by 4.1 percent and life expectancy has increased by four years! Proud of this administration for ensuring a safer and healthier future for our nation’s children. #BeBest,” she wrote.

Shortly after, the first lady’s tweet was confirmed to have only been half accurate. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there has indeed been a 4.1 percent drop drug overdose fatalities. However, life expectancy has only increased by just one month in 2018.

“Life expectancy in the United States in 2018 was 78.7 years — an increase of 0.1 years compared with a life expectancy of 78.6 years in 2017, the NCHS reported in a study published Thursday. The 2018 estimate remains lower than the peak of 78.9 years in 2014,” CNN reported.

The FLOTUS also uploaded a link to the statement made by the Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Jim Carrol and Senior Counselor President Kellyanne Conway. But while they mentioned the 4.1 percent drop in fatalities, they did not say anything about the improved life expectancy.

Some netizens lambasted the first lady for posting fake or incorrect information on social media.

“Good grief. Before I even realized this was you, I knew this was a lie. This week alone I heard of two people that OD’d in my circle (friends of friends). Manipulating dating in an election year,” Twitter user @furesist said.

“Please, you’re lying!” Twitter user @frostcaramel wrote.

“Drug overdoses have definitely not dropped they have risen. The only reason deaths have dropped is because of Narcan and that was not his administration,” Twitter user @tessas04 said.

Meanwhile, Melania also made headlines years ago after she shared her thoughts on Donald Trump’s immigration beliefs. Contrary to rumors that the FLOTUS did not go through the right process to obtain the Epstein Visa, she said that she actually went through a long and tedious process.

The FLOTUS also said that she had no intention to stay in America illegally.

“It didn’t even cross my mind to just here. I think people should follow the law,” she told People.
