United States President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the large US pharmaceutical companies are "trying to make the case" about him increasing prescription drug prices on seniors, APA reports citing Teletrader.
The president asserted those ads are a "lie" as the Big Pharma "is not happy" about the fact Trump cleared the path for a 50% reduction in prescription drug prices.
"So when you see those nasty ads from Big Pharma remember, the only reason they are going all out is the massive PRICE REDUCTIONS you are getting - not good for them. Plus, I was only President in 51 years that got a Prescription D reduction!" Trump tweeted.
Last week, the president signed four Executive Orders on drug pricing, directing Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar to take action to deliver lower costs on prescription drugs for US citizens.
