President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with

First Lady Melania Trump kicked off an opioids summit Thursday by saying she is "so proud" of the administration's efforts to combat addiction but that far too many Americans still need treatment, a shoulder to cry on and belief they're not alone in the fight.

Trump loyalist and adviser Corey Lewandowski told Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 The Patriot Channel this past weekend that he believed the president would be moving in this direction with trade, noting that it boils down to bringing manufacturing jobs, which were decimated and outsourced through various free trade agreements, back to the country.

Trump said that he had urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take legal action.

"We have pushers and drug dealers that don't - I mean they kill hundreds and hundreds of people and majority don't even go to jail". "You have people that go to the hospital with a broken arm and they are addicted, they are addicted to painkillers and they don't even know what happened".

The President also lamented that the United States does not have stricter punishments for drug dealers.

"Some countries have a very, very tough penalty". And drugs are a similar but different problem in the sense that we have pushers, and we have drug dealers that don't - I mean, they kill hundreds and hundreds of people. "We're going to have a level playing field".

President Donald Trump called for a federal lawsuit against drug companies during a summit on the opioid crisis held at the White House March 1, according to a report from Reuters.

Sessions and Trump's deteriorating relationship was on full display Wednesday after Trump tweeted that his attorney general's decision to refer questions to the inspector general was "disgraceful".

A mother at the summit said her son, Ryan, died of an overdose in a Macy's department-store restroom while he was on the wait list for recovery programs, so more capacity is needed. Carson has now said he wants to cancel the order. Shulkin recently apologized to VA staff after the agency's Office of the Inspector General alleged Shulkin improperly accepted a gift of Wimbledon tickets during a work trip to London.

Trump would be well-advised to focus on the public health component of the opioid crisis.

Additionally, both the House and Senate are working in a large package of bills addressing the epidemic, but none of the lawmakers are on the list of summit attendees provided by the White House.
