USA: Trump promises ‘drug free America’ at Atlanta summit

US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania delivered speeches together at the ‘Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit’ in Atlanta on Wednesday.

The President announced “more than 70,000 precious American lives are lost to the opioid and drug crisis” each year, but that drug overdose deaths are down in states such as “New Hampshire, West Virginia, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Ohio. And they’re very steeply down in three of those cases.”

He said his administration “secured a record six billion dollars in new funding to combat the opioid crisis and that’s the most ever. And we’re going for even bigger numbers this year.”

Trump concluded with a pledge to “end this terrible menace. We will smash the grip of addiction. We will make our cities safe, our communities strong and our future brighter than ever before as one united nations. We will work. We will pray. And we will fight for the day when every family across our land can live in a drug free America.”
