In an address at the White House, Trump said the growing epidemic spares "no part" of the country, promising his administration will spend "lots of money" to find non-addictive painkiller, Xinhua news agency reported. "We're going to draw it up and we're going to make it a national emergency".
The opioid epidemic killed 64,000 Americans in 2016, prompting Trump to call it the "worst drug crisis in our nation's history".
Trump's declaration will also expand access to telemedicine for people in remote areas and shift resources in HIV/AIDs programs to allow people in those programs to receive substance abuse disorder treatments.

But Democrats criticized Trump for what they characterized as a tepid response to an urgent calamity, arguing that his failure to request funding for the effort revealed a lack of seriousness about addressing the issue.
He adds, "However, the additional focus it brings to the opioid epidemic may lead to ways to reduce the number of individuals and families affected by or dying from opioid overdoses every day in Georgia".
Critics believe the President should have treated it as a national emergency, which would have treated opioid abuse more in the vein of a natural disaster, enlisting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). And the numbers have been climbing steadily for years: More than 4,000 were in state-funded treatment for opioid abuse in 2013 - up from 399 in 2000.
"We fully recognize the challenge facing Ohio, and we welcome any additional resources provided by the federal government to better arm those on the frontlines combating addiction in our communities", said Jon Keeling, a spokesman for Ohio Gov John Kasich.

Some were disappointed he didn't use the Stafford Act mechanism to fight the problem because it would have made more money available.
