PM happy US has concluded that gun violence is a health crisis

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has praised the US for its stance on the matter of gun violence, following the US Surgeon General Dr Vivek Murthy’s declaration that gun violence in the US is indeed a public health crisis.

In a social media post yesterday, mere hours after Murthy made the statement in the US, Rowley said: “When TT took this position and sponsored an international symposium where this was the major theme, the useless wastrels of the UNC opposition attempted to denigrate the country over this realisation and had nothing but negatives to offer.”

He added, “We are happy that the US Government has come to this conclusion in their country since this augurs well for them seeing more of our problems on this crisis and would continue to work together with us as we devise and strengthen our responses.”

The PM noted Murthy recommended “an array of preventive measures that he compared to past campaigns against smoking.”
