President Trump talks with Jared Kushner in the White House on Dec. 7 2017

Not Released

"We want America to understand this is a problem", Surgeon General Jerome Adams said in an interview that aired Thursday on Morning Edition.

The Philippines and Singapore are among countries that execute drug dealers, and Trump has discussed those policies in meetings with the leaders of those countries, officials said. It featured Cabinet members, along with Mrs. Trump and counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway.

Jared Kushner's job in the White House is soundly secure despite his security clearance being downgraded, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in Thursday's White House press briefing.

According to figures from the Centers for Disease Control, 64,000 people died from opioid overdoses (including heroin) in the USA in 2016, or some 175 people per day.

The summit comes more than four months after President Donald Trump declared the opioid crisis a public health emergency, though the decision faced criticism as it stopped short of a national emergency declaration that would have made an additional surge of federal funds available to address treatment and recovery efforts. The president also recently signed a budget agreement that will provide a record $6 billion over the next two years to fight opioid abuse.

Other administration officials were expected to attend as well as about 200 advocates and others directly connected to the opioid crisis.

The president ignored shouted questions as to whether he has confidence in his attorney general.

"Some countries have a very, very tough penalty - the ultimate penalty [for drug dealers]", Trump also said. Trump delivered his remarks after spending months telling "certain friends" that he thinks the USA should execute all drug traffickers, as Singapore does. '"I pray that we give peace to families in knowing that they told their loved ones how much they are treasured'".

"So we're going to have to be very strong on penalties", Efe quoted Trump as saying. "The administration has prioritized the issue and is implementing strategies around saving lives, lowering demand and lowering supply", said Adams.
