The opioid crisis has hit an unprecedented level of brutality, with an estimated 2.4 million Americans overdosing on prescription opioids, according to a new report.
But the president has taken a decidedly different approach to the crisis than most previous presidents, and he’s made it clear he’s not interested in doing anything about it.
His administration has taken more than $50 million in direct donations from pharmaceutical companies and their top executives in recent months, and Trump is also raising money from Wall Street firms that he said are helping the crisis.
Here are some of the biggest donors to the Trump campaign and other White House figures: The Trump campaign has donated nearly $2.6 million to his campaign, the Republican National Committee has donated $8.6 billion and the Republican Governors Association has donated almost $3.6 bn.
The opioid crises have hit an unusual level of violence, with a report estimating that more than 100,000 Americans died of overdoses in 2016 alone.
Trump’s administration has focused on a strategy called “alternative facts,” which seeks to portray opioid deaths as a public health crisis rather than an issue of economic inequality and drug abuse.
He has called the epidemic a pandemic, but many health experts believe it’s a much more complex problem than that.
Here’s how some of Trump’s most notable supporters have made their fortunes: The Republican Party’s top fundraiser, former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush, has given at least $25,000 to the campaign.
Trump has pledged to expand Medicaid, which provides health care to low-income Americans, and has promised to cut the number of opioid prescriptions from 100 million to 30 million.
The Republican National Lawyers Association, which represents lawyers in the Trump White House, has donated at least a million dollars.
The campaign of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is in the running to become Trump’s secretary of state, has contributed at least more than a million.
Trump also has donated to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which has contributed more than half a billion dollars to his presidential bid.
The Koch brothers’ political action committee, Americans for Prosperity, has made significant donations to the presidential campaign of Trump and has given him more than 50 million dollars, according a recent report by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Trump is not the only one to have benefitted from Trump’s political power.
He also benefited from Trump Tower’s renovation, which helped him raise millions of dollars for the campaign and a slew of other conservative causes.
The Washington Monument, which Trump has called a national monument, has been closed to the public for decades.
Trump donated the building to his wife, Melania, in 1995, and the Trump Organization has leased it to the city for the Trump Hotel.
Trump and his family have donated at the Washington Monument about $7 million since 2000.
