The recommendations were "to open up funding for the Department of Public Health - for instance, to open up more treatment beds, to create funding and make it easier for. first responders to use naloxone, which reverses opioid overdoses in the field", he says.

However, despite the rhetorical similarities between the "rain of ruin" and the "fire and fury", presidential historians like Michael Beschloss say Trump's language has been unusually harsh considering the context, noting that President John F.

It also said that China and Russian Federation should enhance coordination to let other parties know they would not stand aside should their security be threatened by the escalating tensions.

Earlier this year, the agency requested $60 million in additional funds to pay for protecting the President.
