For the first time since the campaign, the President and First Lady will be traveling to New Hampshire to further enforce the Administration’s commitment to combatting the Opioid crisis.


The President is going to the root of the crisis by making this announcement in New Hampshire, a state that has had the second highest rate of opioid-involved overdose death in the nation since 2014.


Upon arrival at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Governor Sununu, Mayor of Manchester Joyce Craig, Brigadier General David Mikolaities, Adjunct General, New Hampshire, New Hampshire Republican Party Chairwoman Jeanne Forrester and a group of supporters will greet the President and First Lady.


The President delivered remarks at Manchester Community College late this afternoon, which are viewable on You Tube.
