Donald Trump vows to deploy the Army to end the fentanyl crisis in the United States


Former United States President Donald Trump announced Thursday that if he is reappointed president, he will deploy military troops to combat the fentanyl crisis and also to “inflict maximum damage” on cartel operations.

In a campaign video obtained by Fox News, the former president says that if he wins a new term in the 2024 presidential election, he will try to get drug traffickers and people traffickers who have already been convicted to be sentenced to death. .

“For three decades before my election, drug overdose deaths increased every year. Under my leadership, we confronted the drug and fentanyl crisis and achieved the first reduction in overdose deaths in more than 30 years,” Trump asserted. in said video.

However, aware of the magnitude of the problem that the United States is going through with fentanyl, an ultra-addictive drug that has claimed the lives of “100,000 Americans a year”, Trump has pointed out that he will also demand the collaboration of nearby countries to “dismantle” drug trafficking networks.

In fact, this international call is not limited only to American countries, but Trump has announced that China itself “will pay a high price” if it fails to control exports of chemical precursors to fentalin, and has announced that during his first term He even reached an agreement with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping.

“He had an agreement with President Xi. They were not going to send more, and they were going to impose the death penalty for those who achieved it in China,” Trump said, alluding to that agreement reached with Beijing to take strong measures against production of the base components of fentanyl.

Thus, Trump has taken the opportunity to charge against the current US president, Joe Biden, whose Administration he accuses of having thrown to the ground all the “progress” that the country obtained between 2017 and 2021, “Fentanyl and other ultra-deadly poisons have arrived to our country without control”, he lamented.

“When I return to the White House, I will take action from day one to end this horrible plague and save American lives. Joe Biden will never solve the drug overdose crisis because he is actively destroying our border,” he denounced.

“They are killing our people, they are poisoning our beautiful children (…) My administration will support measures to make it easier for those who suffer from addiction to seek treatment without losing their jobs,” concluded the former president, who last November He confirmed that he would run again in the elections.
