Trump Just Hired Former 2016 Rival For Major Role in Administration! [Video]


If you have ever watched a person suffer from addiction, you know first-hand that it is an illness and something that is difficult to treat. Drug addiction requires not only rehab, but also compassion.  There are going to be a most likely a series of ups and downs for that individual or drug addict who is going through the long term treatment of drug addiction.

Throwing drug addicts in prison isn’t curing or solving the problem. Donald Trump obviously agrees with this theory. President Trump just tapped a very good resource and a former 2016 rival for a major role in his administration to help combat opium addiction and abuse.

H/T Conservative Tribune:

President Donald Trump is set to tap New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as the head of a new drug commission devoted to combating opioid abuse.

The position is part of the White House Office of American Innovation, led by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Christie, 54, has experience tackling the opioid epidemic in his home state. He previously signed legislation aimed at limiting access to various opioid drugs.

The New Jersey Governor has been working with Kushner on the issue informally for several weeks, according to a report from the Washington Post.

“There’s going to be lots of different pieces to try and solve this problem,” Christie said after declaring the issue a public heath crisis back in January.

“It’s a disease; we’re doing this because it could be anybody,” he added.

During his monthly Ask the Governor show on WKXW Monday evening, Christie discussed his background in fighting opioid addiction.

“It’s an issue I’m incredibly passionate about, and I have been since 1995,” Christie said.

It’s not hard to understand why Chris Christie was selected for this position in Trump’s administration. Here’s Christie talking about Opium Addiction at a NH Town Hall meeting in 2016:


‘If you are pro-life that means you got to be pro-life for the whole life’
Opioid deaths make up more than half of America’s drug-related fatalities, claiming 52,404 lives in 2015. The issue has become so severe that it’s responsible for the first drop in U.S life expectancy since 1993.

Drug addiction can happen to ANYONE. Christie is right, we need to stop judging and give them the best tools we can to help them get better! Absolutely! Amen!
