President-elect Donald Trump criticized the pharmaceutical industry during his press conference on Wednesday. “Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power,” Mr. Trump said. Trump Tower was packed with reporters, supporters and props for Donald Trump's first press conference as President-elect. Mr. Trump called the drug industry “a disaster,” and chided it for not manufacturing enough of their products in the U.S. and moving to overseas locations. They supply our drugs, but they don’t make them here, to a large extent,” Mr. Trump said.
