President Trump is reportedly set to sign an executive order Friday to reduce prescription-drug costs.
The president’s election-year effort was first reported by The Hill newspaper, which obtained an invitation sent to some GOP lawmakers for a 3 p.m. White House event on drug pricing.
The exact details of the executive order remain unclear. But sources told the newspaper that it could include a version of an existing proposal to lower the price of some U.S. drugs by connecting them to lower prices paid in other countries.
