WASHINGTON — Last week, it was a left-wing political group taking Pfizer (PFE) to task for hiking prices on dozens of drugs. On Monday, it was the president, who accused the company of arbitrarily hiking prices and taking advantage of Americans struggling to afford prescription medicines.
“Pfizer & others should be ashamed that they have raised drug prices for no reason,” President Trump tweeted. “They are merely taking advantage of the poor & others unable to defend themselves, while at the same time giving bargain basement prices to other countries in Europe & elsewhere. We will respond!”
