Christie says “it’s not good” that President Donald Trump has yet to declare the opioid crisis a national emergency. Trump appointed the Republican governor to chair his opioid commission, whose signature recommendation was an emergency declaration. Christie said Tuesday, Oct. 10 the commission’s recommendations are “lessened” without the emergency declaration. But he says it’s too soon to say whether not declaring an emergency has made things worse. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke)
