Washington sources reported that US President Donald Trump said in a tweet, days after major pharmaceutical companies raised prices of some drugs and slammed Pfizer and other pharma companies for raising prices of drugs and said that they should be ashamed of it. He said “Pfizer & others should be ashamed that they have raised drug prices for no reason”.



Trump added “The Pharma companies are merely taking advantage of the poor and others unable to defend themselves, while at the same time giving bargain basement prices to other countries in Europe & elsewhere”.  Meanwhile Trump warned that his administration would respond to such an unjustified increase in drug prices. Earlier on July 1, Pfizer increased the prices of over 40 drugs including Viagra and moreover Pfizer was followed by other pharma companies.
