U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he had signed a new executive order aimed at lowering drug prices in the United States by linking them to those of other nations.

“My Most Favored Nation order will ensure that our Country gets the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries. The days of global freeriding at America’s expense are over,” Trump said in a Twitter post.

My earlier thread was deleted for being in the wrong forum, so lets try this one? Way past time for this to happen. Trump I mean.

He already did it. Americans were paying $10 for a pill so the same pill could be sold in other countries for 50 cents, and many generic drugs were kept out of the US market.

He changed the rules so everybody pays the same.

Sounds like common sense. Why should we subsidize the rest of the world? Should also allow India and Canada to sell in the USA.
