Hood, who also co-authored a recent Huffington Post piece with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and celebrity doctor, Mehmet Oz, said the opioid crisis is escalating at breathtaking rates considering that more than 140 Americans are dying of drug overdoses each day.

Lamson said the declaration could allow more beds at detox facilities to be covered by Medicaid.

However, despite the rhetorical similarities between the "rain of ruin" and the "fire and fury", presidential historians like Michael Beschloss say Trump's language has been unusually harsh considering the context, noting that President John F.

It also said that China and Russian Federation should enhance coordination to let other parties know they would not stand aside should their security be threatened by the escalating tensions.

But it also said that if the USA and South Korea took a first strike against North Korea, China should intervene.
