Trump: Americans pay too much for prescription drugs: speech excerpt

 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Americans are paying more than people in other countries for prescription drugs, according to excerpts from the State of the Union address.

“It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place. This is wrong, unfair, and together we can stop it,” Trump said in prepared remarks.
