Trade Globalists in White House Fail to Stop Trump's 'America First' Tariffs

  • President Donald Trump is looking into new policies that bring harsher punishments for drug dealers

"And, by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do".

"So we're going to have to be very strong on penalties", Efe quoted Trump as saying.

"If other countries are dumping their products on USA soil because they're subsidizing them, whether that's steel or aluminum, or anything else, this president has been very clear: We're going to have fair trade".

The president's comments came just after the West Virginia attorney general announced a lawsuit against the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in an effort to decrease opioid prescriptions in the U.S. "And drugs are a similar but different problem", Trump also said, "in the sense that we have pushers and we have drug dealers that don't - I mean, they kill hundreds and hundreds of people, and majority don't even go to jail".

He did not specify the type of punishment he would like to see drug dealers face. "Together, we can really take this important issue to where it needs to be".




In a testy exchange with ABC News's Cecilia Vega, Sanders was initially asked whether US President Donald Trump intends to fire Attorney-General Jeff Sessions. In a remarkably rare step, though, Sessions responded to the President in a statement, stating that the process he initiated was "appropriate" and will "ensure complaints against this department will be fully and fairly acted upon if necessary".

Addressing the crowd of more than 200 participants from across the nation, the first lady read a letter sent to her from a mother who lost her son in an opioid-related death. Shulkin recently apologized to VA staff after the agency's Office of the Inspector General alleged Shulkin improperly accepted a gift of Wimbledon tickets during a work trip to London.

Others applauded the White House for encouraging survivors of opioids addiction to share their stories, so others feel supported.

Estimates suggest the problem only got worse in 2017, as synthetic fentanyl filters through illicit heroin market, so Mr. Trump declared the opioids problem a public health emergency in October. No explanation was given for not including them, the aide said.
