Kellyanne Conway: Trump and Melania deserve credit for people living longer


Kellyanne Conway claimed an increase in life expectancy in the U.S. 'happened through causation,' owing to Trump and his wife.

From a White House press briefing on Thursday:

KELLYANNE CONWAY: We come before you bearing good news. For the first time in four years, life expectancy in the United States of America has increased. And for the first time in 29 years, the number of drug overdose deaths has decreased. This has not happened through coincidence, it's happened through causation. It's owing in large part to a whole-of-government approach to treat the whole person led by President Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and really the entire administration.
