WASHINGTON -- Attorney General Pam Bondi has been appointed to President Trump's Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission.

"Thousands of Americans each year die from drug overdoses," Bondi said in a statement. "I want to thank the President of the United States, Governor Christie and many others for caring about this deadly epidemic."

Trump tapped Chris Christie to lead the panel.

Later today, Bondi will moderate a women's empowerment panel at the White House.
