Trump tweeted about meeting with Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) to discuss lowering U.S. drug prices.
Trump was “enthusiastic” about the topic of drug pricing, Cummings told reporters after the meeting. “He was clearly aware of the problem and he made clear to us he wanted to do something about it.”
“He knew there was a whole group of lobbyists and a lot of money being poured into this,” Cummings said of the drug industry. “It boiled down to, again, saving people’s lives and saving money, and he was clear when you have situations where these companies are jacking up these prices it puts a lot of families in jeopardy.”
