Exclusive poll: Public doesn't trust Trump, GOP on drug prices

Data: Survey Monkey online poll conducted Nov. 13-15, 2018 among 2,798 U.S. adults. Total margin of error is ±2.5 percentage points; Poll methodology; Chart: Chris Canipe/Axios

Apple first approached the VA back in 2017, a source told the Journal. An Apple representative was not immediately available for comment.
