GAME CHANGER – China Quickly Fulfills Promise To Trump, Saves Countless American Lives!

China has just fulfilled a big promise to Trump that he said in December could be a ‘game changer’.

In December, Trump said that China would soon ban all types of fentanyl in their country:

And now it looks like they’ve done just that:

NY TIMES – China announced on Monday that it would treat all variants of the powerful opioid fentanyl as controlled substances, making good on a pledge the country’s leader, President Xi Jinping, made to President Trump late last year.

China’s export of the drug, a family of synthetic opioids blamed for tens of thousands of overdoses in the United States, has long been a source of tension in relations and has, more recently, become tangled up in the continuing trade war.

The latest step would expand restrictions to all “fentanyl-related substances,” effective May 1. That could plug gaps that, experts and American officials have said, allowed manufacturers in China to make novel variations of the drug that were not technically illegal.

In December, Mr. Trump announced a promise Mr. Xi made to him at the Group of 20 meeting in Buenos Aires, saying then that the step formalized on Monday could be a “game changer.” He had previously taken to Twitter earlier to excoriate China over the issue, accusing it of “killing our children and destroying our country.”

I’m sure this will making a lot of people here very happy, especially those who’ve lost loved ones to fentanyl overdoses.
