Trump budget sharply cuts White House office leading opioid crisis response

Source: ABC News

The Trump administration's FY2019 budget released Monday requests more than $30 billion for drug control efforts, while at the same time proposing a sharp cut to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which has been leading the fight in the opioid crisis.

The administration says it's shifting responsibility for spending on anti-drug programs to the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services — and away from the White House office — so it can better focus on policy.

While the exact proposed cut was unclear, a report from Politico last month said the plan was to reduce ONDCP's budget by 95 percent.

In October, President Donald Trump called the opioid epidemic “the worst drug crisis in American history,” and the ONDCP took the lead in coordinating the federal response across the government.

1. If the GOP (Trump, in particular) is involved, there is a sinister and/or selfish reason.
