The President spoke approximately a week after a White House commission on the opioid crisis led by New Jersey Governor Christie recommended he declare it a national emergency.

"Our citizens are dying".

Glenda Bonetti, Northumberland County Drug and Alcohol administrator, referred to the commission report and its statement that 142 people die daily in America of an overdose.

"The first and most urgent recommendation of this Commission is direct and completely within your control".

Price sought to diminish the administration's resolution on Tuesday just after Trump declared that a robust law implementation reply is required and that he is devoted to fight the situation.

"This is everything from health care for treatment for those battling the disease of addiction, but also law enforcement, to get access to crime fighting tools and support to stop drug dealers and the flow of heroin into our communities".

"We're going to draw it up and we're going to make it a national emergency", he said.

The president could ask HHS Secretary Price to declare an emergency under the Public Health Service Act. This is more insight into Trump's view of the presidency.

"As I have said before, I am completely confident that the president will address this problem aggressively and do all he can to alleviate the suffering and loss of scores of families in every corner of our country".

Prescription painkillers and heroin contributed to some 60,000 overdose deaths in the United States in 2016, a 19 percent surge over the previous year, according to an estimate compiled by the New York Times. "It is a drug that literally can revive many people who have overdosed and are otherwise on the verge of death". The latest federal estimates released this week suggest the pace of drug overdose deaths accelerated past year. "The average American would likely be shocked to know that drug overdoses now kill more people than gun homicides and auto crashes combined". "Better physician training and more facilitative policies for medication for the treatment of opioid use disorder could reduce mortality with substantial cost savings".

"If it opens up more treatment beds, it's a good idea". But we've been checking around with various agencies, the White House, and they just don't quite know yet. But if the Trump administration were to issue such an order, it would put a lot of pressure on Congress to back it up with money. "So declaring a state of emergency seems like the right thing to do, since we're not seeing our numbers go down". The Department of Health and Human Services declared one in Puerto Rico a year ago after more than 10,000 Zika cases were reported there. He added, however, that all options including a declaration of emergency were still on the table.
