President Donald Trump suggested that a federal lawsuit against opioid manufacturers may be on the horizon at a meeting on the opioid crisis on Thursday.
The president said he’s spoken with Attorney General Jeff Sessions about bringing a lawsuit against companies, adding that the administration will be rolling out more policies over the next three weeks. States led by both Democrats and Republicans are suing wholesalers and drugmakers for their involvement in the epidemic.
