Gearing up for his 2020 re-election campaign, President Donald Trump last week said he would refuse any campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies, FiercePharma reports.
“They didn’t give to my campaign,” Trump said during an April 24 event in Atlanta. “They gave to a lot of other campaigns; that’s the problem. But we are holding them — I couldn’t care less. They’ve got to do what’s right.”
According to the report, Trump’s 2016 campaign accepted $386,862 from the pharmaceutical industry, while Hillary Clinton’s campaign accepted $2.6 million. Pfizer also issued a $1 million check to Trump’s inauguration committee after the election.
