Also we should lean on the Chinese and start opening mail. Yeah, that should work. Since ‘the amount of opioids prescribed in the U.S. was enough for every American to be medicated around the clock for three weeks’, and since the increase in prescription opioids matches precisely the increase in opioid overdoses, just maybe we should start by talking to some doctors instead.

That’s not the Donald Trump I know. No way. No how. I think you’ve got the wrong guy, Ellynn. August 9, 2017 2:56 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn You might have over done it a bit there.
