Earlier, a member of the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Green, accused the US leader of the death of two children due to the volatile drug situation in the country, reports RIA Novosti.
Biden said that Green, commenting on the words of a mother who lost two children to fentanyl, accused him of killing these children. “The most interesting thing is that the fentanyl they took came from the previous administration,” Biden said with a smile. After that, the president refused to develop this topic further.
The total number of drug overdose deaths in the United States increased by a record 30% between 2019 and 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to experts, this was mainly due to the expansion of illicit fentanyl production. In 2021, this number increased another 15%, surpassing 100,000 people.
