Trump's Solution to Opioid Crisis: Tell Kids Drugs Are 'No Good'

Opinion Election of Trump Reveals Cultural Divide and Flaws in Our Democratic System

President Donald Trump yesterday vowed that the USA will fight and win the battle against the deadly opioid epidemic but stopped short of declaring it a national emergency as a White House Commission recommended last week.

However, he noted, "the resources we need or the focus we need to bring to bear on the opioid crisis can be addressed without a declaration of emergency, but all things are on the table for the President".

Christie, according to CNN, said last week on behalf of the commission: "We say to the president, you must declare an emergency".

"It is an emergency", Price said, adding that the number of people who die each year from opioids would fill Yankee Stadium.

City officials and advocates had praised the commission's report for its emphasis on prevention and treatment - which dovetails with the recommendations produced by the city's own opioid task force.

Canada sends soldiers to U.S. border where refugees cross
Canadian authorities accepted 50.5 percent of the 410 refugee claims by Haitians heard in 2016, government data showed. It will take about two or three days for Canada Border Services to process the 700 asylum applications.

"The lack of funding for essential treatment and recovery services is a persistent barrier to effectively addressing the opioid crisis", reads the letter, which was signed by nine other Democrats. The health news website STAT reports that six states have used disaster or emergency declarations in order to take more aggressive measures to fight opioids.

But Trump's ignoring the entire report - there will be no state of emergency declared - which explained why Christie flew off for an Italy vacation rather than appear with Trump.

Trump briefly addressed the problem Tuesday, meeting with health officials and members of his administration to receive an update on the crisis and speaking to reporters.

Despite the commission's opinion, the Trump administration announced it would not declare an emergency as of now.

Trump's Office of National Drug Control Policy did not respond to questions about Trump's suggestion.

President Donald Trump suggested on Tuesday that the way to avoid opioid addiction is never to start in the first place: "If they don't start, they won't have a problem". "If they do start, it's awfully tough to get off", Trump said.

According to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released separately, overdose death rates in the third quarter of 2016 reached a record-high of 19.9 deaths per 100,000, and the trend shows a consistent increase over the past almost two years. "The problem is very complicated, and now we are on the losing side of this war". The fatal overdose rate in 2016 reached a record 19.9 deaths per 100,000 population between July and September, compared to 16.7 per 100,000 over the same period in 2015, according to federal estimates released Tuesday.

Asked if the commission was wrong in recommending a public health emergency, Price said: "It was an interim report from the commission and it's being reviewed at all different levels of the government".

But the substance of the meeting was quickly overshadowed when Trump, responding to a reporter's question about North Korea's provocations, threatened to unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the United States.

"In terms of saving lives, states are already all-in on this issue", said Michael Fraser, executive director of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers, which represents public health agencies and health professionals in the United States and its territories. For every door that we close, they open a new door to death'.
