DRUGS/HEALTHCARE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “I’ve signed four acts — we’ll call it executive orders — and they’re the most powerful ever signed in this industry by a factor of about 20. And it’s going to bring your drug prices down to a level that you’ve never seen before…

The drug companies don’t contribute to my campaign. I don’t need their money. I haven’t asked for their money. And if they did, it wouldn’t matter to me anyway, but I am not somebody that’s reliant on the drug companies. And we call it ‘big pharma.’ Big pharma is probably the most powerful lobbyists of any lobbyists there is, probably. I don’t know. Maybe the lawyers lobby is pretty powerful too. But big pharma would be just about up there. And we have to do what’s right.”
