President Donald Trump spurned campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry, calling the industry out for its role in a national opioid addiction epidemic.
In 2016, he got just $386,862 from donors working for pharmaceutical firms. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton received $2.7 million from them.
The industry does not rank among the top 20 sources of money for Trump’s re-election campaign, which has gotten the bulk of its support from small-dollar donors giving in amounts of $200 or less.
Now these are the people Trump is fighting for, but gets derailed by the fake media and its satanic liberals working for the Deep State.
Trump’s administration has stepped up scrutiny of pharmaceutical companies as part of an initiative to combat addiction to prescription painkillers.
Federal prosecutors charged opioid distributor Rochester Drug Cooperative and its former chief executive with felonies — the first case of its kind related to the opioid crisis.
