"I teach him what is right, what is wrong, and I will always tell him that drugs, they could be very risky and they could mess up your mind and body", Trump said.

Mrs. Trump is featured in a new video unveiling the White House Christmas decorations, an annual tradition dating back decades.

But the event was aimed mostly at discussing the U.S. opioid epidemic and she said she had taught her son "what is right, what is wrong". "In real life, they look even more handsome and you are all very welcome to visit the White House, the people's house", she said in an interview Wednesday. Remember last June when she wore a jacket that said "I really don't care, do you" as a rebuke to critics?

Trump's appearance at Liberty University was to share her "Be Best" initiative while encouraging the students to make a difference in the world in fighting against the opioid crisis by raising awareness and removing the stigma.

At the panel event, Mrs Trump also spoke about her son Barron, saying the 12-year-old is "all into sports" so did not spend time on social media.

"While you may never personally become addicted, the chances of you knowing someone who struggles with it are very high", she said.

Her words were greeted with laughter, cheers and applause from the audience.
