"I will be holding a major briefing on the Opioid crisis, a major problem for our country, today at 3:00 P.M.in Bedminster, N.J.", Trump said in a Twitter post around 7:00 a.m. Overdose-related deaths climbed higher throughout the first nine months of 2016, according to the CDC, and an estimated 142 individuals die every day.

The president's efforts on the opioid crisis came under criticism on Tuesday from Democrats and liberal groups.

In March, the president signed an executive order establishing The President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, which is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. "Declare a national emergency".

"(T) he people that are in trouble, the people that are addicted, we're going to work with them and try and make them better", he said in the video.

The president would have also been able to direct funds to equip police with Naloxone and provide the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Agency and other law enforcement agencies with more money to focus on the manufacturers and smugglers of unsafe drugs like fentanyl, which is a powerful painkiller that packs 25 to 50 times more punch than straight heroin, Sorensen said.

According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control, in the third quarter of 2016 an estimated 19.9 out of every 100,000 people in the US died from drug overdoses, compared with 16.7 in the year prior-distinguished as a significant increase by the agency.

Trump's opioid commission released an interim report last week recommending that the president declare a national emergency to address the opioid crisis.

"Our citizens are dying". "We must act boldly to stop it".

The drug overdose death rate reached 19.9 cases for every 100,000 people during the late summer of 2016, compared with 16.7 cases per 100,000 the year before, the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) stated in its quarterly mortality report.

With Trump at the briefing was First Lady Melania Trump, top adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, and other White House officials. "He created the Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis to ensure our country's response to this frightful epidemic is comprehensive and effective. We are reviewing its recommendations, and eagerly await its final report". A few weeks later, the White House backtracked from that plan, instead proposing more modest cuts to the office.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced the creation of the Opioid Fraud Abuse and Detection Unit. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Rob Portman of OH, two states hit hard by the epidemic. Medicaid now pays for one-fourth of all substance abuse treatment, up from about one-tenth in 1986.
