A statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

The President intends to nominate Jim Carroll to serve as the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. We have full confidence in Jim to lead ONDCP to make significant strides in combatting the opioids crisis, reducing drug use, and coordinating U.S. drug policy. Fighting the opioid crisis and drug addiction is a priority for this administration. We greatly appreciate Jim for his counsel and leadership during his tenure at the White House and look forward to the future contributions he will make in this new role.
