President Trump has declared the opioid crisis a national public health emergency. He said it's the worst drug crisis in American history and a problem worldwide.

"As Americans we cannot allow this to continue. It is time to liberate our communities from this scourge of drug addiction, never been this way... We can be the generation that ends the opioid epidemic, we can do it," President Trump said on Thursday.

The President said he's directing all executive agencies to use every appropriate emergency authority to fight the crisis. The declaration doesn't make new funds available to deal with the crisis as much as it allows for the redirection of existing funds.
