Opioid crisis 'national emergency'

Trump announced his intentions during a press gaggle at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey after he was asked about the opioid crisis.

Trump said Thursday that the nation's addiction to opioids is "a serious problem, the likes of which we have never had". "This is a national emergency and we are drawing up documents now to so attest".

"I commend the president for declaring that the opioid crisis is a public health emergency", Buchanan said.

Trump, who made the issue a key talking point during his campaign, previously received an interim report from a commission he appointed that called for declaration of a national emergency.

"Our citizens are dying".

In March, the president assembled a panel to research the opioid crisis and its discovery was shocking; the panel concluded that we are facing death tolls as large as 9/11 every three weeks because of overdoses. It's a national emergency.

"We have over-prescribing of opioids from physicians who still need an education on who should and shouldn't be prescribed".

"Second, declaring an emergency allows temporary waivers of many rules regarding federal programs", Humphreys said.

White House and federal health officials did not respond to requests for more information about how Mr. Trump decided that an emergency declaration is necessary, despite the comments to the contrary from his advisers.

"President Trump is very in-tune to the severity of this crisis".

He said the country has grappled with drug problems before, such as a wave of LSD and other drugs when he was growing up.

Europol said it had seized bank accounts, properties, and luxury cars belonging to the fraudsters. Dutch health authorities have denied that they knew about the issue in November.

Heroin and opioids killed an estimated 280,000 nationwide between 2002 and 2015, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. In 2015, more than 52,000 people died of drug overdoses, a lot of them because of opioids.

Six states - Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts and Virginia - have already declared emergencies because of the opioid crisis.

"President Trump's bipartisan opioid commission makes clear that this crisis demands a health-based response", said Smith. Instead, it advised the administration to expand drug treatment under Medicaid, push for the development of painkillers that are not opioids, provide law enforcement with the overdose-reversing medication naloxone, and broaden laws that protect people who report overdoses.

Stelter continued to poke fun at the Trump administration's lack of transparency, suggesting that golfers and wedding guests at Bedminster represent the best source of information on the Trump White House.

He said his administration will spend a lot of time, effort and money on the crisis. She's the director of the Johnson County Department of Health. It was that type of global initiative that helped curb the spread of bird flu.

Groups advocating for a public health-centered approach to the epidemic are anxious about what powers an emergency declaration would grant an administration with a fondness for "tough on crime" law enforcement tactics.
