President Trump: Prescription Drug Prices To Go Down Within 2 Weeks

President Trump said the country can expect an upcoming massive drop in prescription drug prices.
“I’m proud to keep another promise to the American people,” he stated.
The president said the prices will go down within the coming two weeks, but didn’t elaborate further.

This announcement came as the President Trump signed the Right to Try Act Wednesday. This new legislation allows people with fatal diseases to use experimental medication.
He also said the affordability of health care has declined over the past decade due to malicious business practices of the Big Pharma and insurers.
“You’re going to have some big news — I think we’re going to have some of the big drug companies, in two weeks, said they’re going to announce, because of what we did, they’re going to announce voluntary massive drops in price,” announced the president.
Additionally, President Trump noted the move comes as part of his broader strategy to bring down prescription drug prices, which was unveiled in April.
