Governor Chris Sununu issued a statement after the President’s speech in New Hampshire.
Trump addressed the opioid epidemic while at an event at Manchester Community College.
“Today, the President saw first-hand the groundbreaking work New Hampshire is doing to combat the opioid crisis. I was joined by Mayor Joyce Craig and General Mikolaities on the tarmac at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to greet the President, where Mayor Craig and I stressed the need for adequate federal funding as we tackle this crisis head-on. As Governor, I will always take the opportunity to advocate for our state, and today New Hampshire’s leaders showed the President our unique programs, which have the ability to serve as a model of best practice across this country. We were one of the first states into this crisis, but I have no doubt that we will be the first state out of it.”
