And Comes Up With a Real Solution – ADVERTISING!!!
Somebody, we don't know who, alerted Donnie to the fact that uncontrolled opioid distribution and addiction was a major health crisis in the United States. So Trump declared it a major problem!
President Trump declared a "nationwide public-health emergency" on the opioid crisis today. Although the declaration doesn't open up new funds (some estimate more than $9.3 billion is needed), Trump argued that "the federal government is aggressively fighting the opioid epidemic on all fronts."
'On all fronts, wow. Who knew?
So how is the feds under Trumpster going to deal with this going forward. Well there is this.
Trump shared the personal story of his brother's alcohol abuse and offered a solution to the opioid crisis: "Really tough, really big, really great advertising so we get to people before they start." His prediction: "If we can teach young people not to take drugs ... it's really, really easy not to take them."
So yes, Trumpie took a good thing, talking about a personal tragedy that we acknowledge affected him (Don does not drink) and turned it into farce. And here is some more.
Okay, anybody want to bet that the opioid epidemic will be better after this Trump stuff? No one, didn't think so.
