Trump to issue emergency declaration next week on opioids

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would declare next week a national emergency on opioid abuse, a move that could give states access to federal funds to fight the drug crisis.The United States is battling a surge in opioid-related deaths, including 33,000 lives lost in 2015, more than any year on record, according to federal data.
     “The opioid is a tremendous emergency,” Trump told Fox Business Network. “Next week, I‘m going to (be) declaring an emergency, (a) national emergency on drugs.”
     Trump is expected to provide a preview of his plans for tackling drug demand and the opioid crisis in remarks on Thursday.
     Trump said in August that he would declare opioid abuse a national emergency.
