Tried listening to Trump's "news conference" but he largely evaded answering questions, made accusations of bias against the press, spewed propaganda and braggged about how beautiful and great he was going to make things while blabbing on an on without taking enough questions as though it was another one of his rallies.
The NY Times has the full transcript here:
While he says some things that I occasionally agree with like the following statements he made about exorbitant drug prices, "We’ve got to get our drug industry back. 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, pharma has a lot of lobbies and a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power and there’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world and yet we don’t bid properly and we’re going to start bidding and we’re going to save billions of dollars over a period of time," it is difficult to believe him when he makes these statements given his well-documented penchant for lying and telling people what he thinks they want to hear. Also, the drug industry is an easy target as very few people believe the pricing system is fair and just and Trump's plans to allow bidding is very likely not all that it seems. Just as with any other president or politician, one must really take what they say with a grain of salt and instead watch what they actually DO.
