Between the lines: It's unlikely that Trump is actually working on a plan of his own. Sometimes he says that when he really means he's just supporting what congressional Republicans are doing (see: Obamacare replacement bill). More likely, Trump is just repeating what he said at his January meeting with drug company executives: The best way to bring down drug prices is to promote competition. That's a plan Congress is already likely to take up, through a bipartisan bill to speed the approval of generic drugs.
From a White House spokesman: Trump is "committed to making drugs more affordable while promoting innovation, and cutting regulations to encourage drug companies to bring back operations and jobs to the United States."
