Roll your eyes if you want, but that's what it's going to take, if he really wants to do the things he's talking about. Caitlin Owens reports that Trump has been doubling down on a basic conflict: His ideas on bringing down drug prices are populist, and mainstream GOP thinking is more about increasing competition and letting the markets work. So the more he talks about negotiating drug prices and importing cheaper drugs from other countries, the more he'll need Democrats to make that work.
So how's that going? Trump is still talking with Cummings, but Bernie Sanders, who's also an advocate of the same ideas, doesn't trust him — he tells Caitlin that Trump "lied a lot." And Republicans aren't into those ideas and don't think the votes are there. Read Caitlin's story here.
Bonus: Trump's Food and Drug Administration nominee, Scott Gottlieb, isn't really into those ideas either, especially the drug reimportation. Guessing he's going to get a question or two about that at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday.
