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.
