“We have a massive drug problem where kids are becoming addicted to drugs because the drugs are being sold for less money than candy. I won New Hampshire* because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den.”

—President Trump, in a Jan. 27 phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto

“Rather than name-call, President Trump should deliver proper aid to combat the opioid crisis. He hasn’t, instead slashing funds for recovery, treatment, and combatting the inflow of opioids.”

—New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley, in a statement this morning

“The president is wrong. It’s disappointing his mischaracterization of this epidemic ignores the great things this state has to offer.”

— Gov. Chris Sununu, a Republican, in a statement this morning

President Trump should immediately apologize to all Granite Staters.”

— Congresswoman Annie Kuster, a Democrat, in a statement this morning
