President Trump tweeted on September 17 in favour of the legislation that will “remove gag clauses and urge the Senate to act”. The President referred to a legislation that will end secrecy around prices in the pharmaceutical industry. He also started a hashtag #AmericanPatientsFirst that was used by thousands of Twitter users within the first couple of hours.
Americans deserve to know the lowest drug price at their pharmacy, but “gag clauses” prevent your pharmacist from telling you! I support legislation that will remove gag clauses and urge the Senate to act. #AmericanPatientsFirst
