The Weekly Standard 2017 Washington, DC Politics 2017-08-11 2017-08-11T05:05 2017-08-10T21:54 President Trump: Opioid Crisis a "National Emergency" President Donald Trump declared America's opioid epidemic a "national emergency" Thursday, following the advice of his opioid commission after declining to do so two days prior. "The opioids crisis is an emergency, and I'm saying officially, right now, it is an emergency," Trump told reporters. "It's a national emergency. We're going to spend a lot of time, a lot of effort, and a lot of money on the opioid crisis." NBC News reported that this official designation frees the executive branch to direct funds towards opioid treatment, such as expanding treatment facilities, and allows the administration to waive certain federal rules restricting how funds to fight opioid addiction can be used.
