Trump to visit NH to talk about plan to combat opioids

National

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump will be traveling to New Hampshire to unveil more of his plan to combat the nation’s opioid crisis.

The White House says the president and First Lady Melania Trump will travel to the Granite State on Monday.

Trump had come under fire for being slow to act on the drug crisis but has begun rolling out new plans. He had promised during the campaign to make fighting the epidemic a priority.

At a recent rally, Trump has mused that the United States should institute the death penalty for drug dealers.

This will be Trump’s first visit to New Hampshire since taking office. He captured the 2016 Republican primary there but narrowly lost in the general election to Hillary Clinton.
