    Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately stop

    The title is a quote from Trumpolini's teleprompted performance in front of Congress on Tuesday. Those are the words he spoke. "Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately stop".

    I have, as yet, seen no indication in anything he's said as to how he intends this wonderful result to be brought about. The thread is here in case anyone knows, or perhaps someone comes across background.

    The demeaning self-humiliating standing ovations from Congress echoed the worst excesses of Mao or Stalin, with the exception that most of the people applauding Mao or Stalin thought Mao or Stalin was a worthy leader. I honestly believe there was nobody in the Congressional audience who thought that of Donald Trump. I also doubt any of them thought the words "our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately stop" were remotely rational, much less attainable under the current administration.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I must admit I don't remember that quote or find it in the text of his speech.
    President Trump's First Address to Congress

    With that said, I did hear of some ways he intends to address the problem.

    I presume that it is just setting up for an expanded "war on drugs" to fill the for-profit private prisons.

    The Time magazine website punctuated it differently. From your link: "Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately, stop." His punctuation isn't explicit in his delivery of the speech so it has to be guessed by the transcriber, but the words are all there. Personally I think Time has been caught with its finger up its bum, if there's a comma after "ultimately" there should be one before as well. That's what we call a rule of grammar.


    With that said, I did hear of some ways he intends to address the problem.
    I didn't. Perhaps you could summarize, and say where you heard it so that we can explore further.

    From your link, near the top :-

    Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately, stop.

    And our neglected inner cities will see a rebirth of hope, safety, and opportunity.

    Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people.

    Thanks for that.

    I remembered him speaking of the inner cities and their problems. I tend to ignore promises. What really interests me is what is his plan to reduce the problems like in Obama's hometown of Chicago. As President Obama never had a thing to say for his people who first elected him their representative in the Illinois State Senate.

    Not to pick on Chicago, Maryland governor declares state of emergency for opioid crisis

    To stop the flow of narcotics one needs to stop the flow from Mexico. Build the wall!

    Then the drugs would go round it - too much coastline to police continuously.
