Top Trump administration officials will meet Friday to nail down ideas for executive actions President Trump can take to rein in rising drug prices — a way to try to fulfill a campaign promise without waiting on Congress.
Who will be there: It's being led by Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney, and will include Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price and National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, per a source familiar with the meeting. Andrew Bremberg, the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, is also heavily involved in the effort.
Why it matters: Trump has been prodding his team for months to come up with actions he can take on his own. A strong set of executive actions could give him a chance to push a more populist health care agenda, and maybe even change the subject from the troubled Affordable Care Act repeal bill.
