Let me try to summarize.
- Trump will ask for an investigation into vote fraud. If he gets it, he will be in a position to expose Clinton crime family dealings. It’s not clear that “asking” for an investigation automatically starts an investigation.
- Trump hurt Big Pharma by saying that they make obscene profits and “we” should start bidding with them, not just taking the deal on their terms.
- President Donald Trump has signed orders to step up immigration enforcement and secure the US border, beginning with building a border wall with Mexico he promised during the campaign.
President Trump has alleged that millions of “illegals” voted in the election, and that it was this group — anywhere from 3 to 5 million, he reportedly told a group of lawmakers this week — that handed the popular vote win to Hillary Clinton. The President said that he will have the investigation look into the voting practices of “those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead.”
Shortly after an interview with the Washington Post in which Trump criticized the industry, Big Pharma lost almost $25 billion in the span of twenty minutes. Should Trump continue that trend, it is very possible that the empire could crumble. Considering how obvious it is that Trump hates Big Pharma, that could happen sooner rather than later.
At a press conference, President-elect Trump stated, “Our drug industry has been disastrous. They’re leaving left and right. They supply our drugs but they don’t make them here, to a large extent. And the other thing we have to do is create new bidding procedures for the drug industry, because they’re getting away with murder. Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists, a lot of power.” Trump went on to explain that “there’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly. We’re going to start bidding. We’re going to save billions of dollars over a period of time.”
For those who have already convinced themselves that Donald Trump is a complete bust that will destroy the United States as we know it, take a look at how he could potentially destroy Big Pharma’s stranglehold and reconsider your position. He has his flaws, certainly, but there is no denying the fact that he has been the only politician in his position to have the bravery to take on the pharmaceutical industry head-on.
The first executive order will order the building of “a large physical barrier on the southern border,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday. It will also provide the Department of Homeland Security agents “tools and resources to stop illegal immigration from entering the US.”
The second order aims to empower Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and “strip federal grant money from sanctuary cities and states that harbor illegal immigrants,” according to Spicer.
Federal agencies will “unapologetically enforce the law, no ifs ands or buts,” said the White House spokesman.
