WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday thanked two major drug companies for not raising their prices and said his administration was working toward “substantially” cutting prescription-drug prices.

“Thank you to Novartis for not increasing your prices on prescription drugs. Likewise to Pfizer. We are making a big push to actually reduce the prices, maybe substantially, on prescription drugs,” Trump said in a tweet.
