Yesterday, speaking to workers at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, about what he’s done to restore America’s manufacturing base and his executive order requiring government agencies to purchase all essential drugs from U.S. sources, President Trump made the following cryptic and troubling remark:
“So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.”
By “very rich enemies,” President Trump made reference to wealthy anonymous “middlemen” who skim profits from pharmaceutical sales. He said: “They are so wealthy. They are so wealthy. Nobody has any idea who the hell they are or what they do. They make more money than the drug companies.”
Trump’s executive order on August 6, 2020, directs the Department of Health and Human Services to use the Defense Production Act to buy essential medicines and other equipment from within the United States. Drug prices will be kept low for customers, and American companies will be able to compete more fairly on the world stage as a result.
In addition, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency will now give priority to domestic manufacturers during the regulatory review of pharmaceutical ingredients and essential medicines. Federal agencies will also help prevent the trafficking of counterfeit medicines from third-party sellers online.
