Trump brings up death penalty for drug dealers

Trump Wanted to Start a Trade War Because He Was Mad Jared Kushner Couldn't Get a Security Clearance

Trump said that he plans to present within the next three weeks a series of initiatives to combat opioid addiction, adding that he had spoken with Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the possibility of filing lawsuits - as hundreds of U.S. communities have done - against firms that make the powerful painkillers.

Melania Trump said Thursday that many people are grieving after losing loved ones to the opioid crisis, telling a White House summit on the issue that "we need to change that".

In the letter, Henderson appealed to the first lady as a mother and asked for her help "in claiming these lost souls before drugs take them from this earth".

Panels planned for Thursday's event included a discussion of prevention, treatment and recovery with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Veterans Affairs Secretary Dr. David Shulkin and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr.

According to figures from the Centers for Disease Control, 64,000 people died from opioid overdoses (including heroin) in the USA in 2016, or some 175 people per day.

In recent weeks there has been some movement, with a congressional budget agreement pledging to add several billion dollars to combat the crisis and the Department of Justice announcing it would work with states that are suing drug manufacturers.

Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.), has 50 cosponsors in the House. Overall, more than 10,000 civilians have died and more than 40,000 have been injured over the course of this war.

Despite senior White House aides pledging to combat the opioid epidemic, some treatment advocates have not been impressed with the Trump administration's decisions, particularly on their decision to focus on the issue as a penal issue, not a medical one. Carroll is a lawyer who has extensive government and private sector experience but hasn't done any work in the public health arena.

According to Wikipedia more than 14,000 people have been killed since Duterte declared a war on drugs and ordered the police and military to kill drug dealers without due process. It's a problem that's growing. "And, by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do".

"If other countries are dumping their products on USA soil because they're subsidizing them, whether that's steel or aluminum, or anything else, this president has been very clear: We're going to have fair trade". "And we're going to continue pushing forward on that front as well".

"Hopefully we can do some litigation against the opioid companies", President Trump said.

But he added he also wants Americans to have hope.
