Democrats say Trump agreed to pursue authority to negotiate drug prices

He didn't, however, detail any firm assurances on Trump's preferred path forward.

Cummings will be joined by Rep. Peter Welch, a Vermont Democrat, and Johns Hopkins Hospital President Dr. Redonda G. Miller. "He was very aware of this prescription drug issue, nearly every aspect of it".

The Oversight Committee leaders requested that Donald McGahn, the counsel to the president, identify any senior officials who have used an alias email account since January 20 and provide details about policies related to creating presidential records on electronic messaging.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, at long last, is set to sit down Wednesday with President Donald Trump to try to find common ground, after a public back-and-forth over prescription drug prices, according to the Maryland Democrat's spokeswoman. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price was also in the Oval Office for the meeting. The bill Congressman Cummings and I presented to him in our meeting will empower the federal government to negotiate with drug companies for lower Medicare drug prices. "He apparently was not in contact with his staff properly", Cummings explained at the time.

Chaffetz and Cummings also noted their unease with encrypted apps White House staffers have been using, which the lawmakers believe may pose risk to record keeping and transparency. That's why Cummings was surprised when Trump accused him of backing out of the meeting during his recent surprise news conference.

Cummings "was all excited and then he said, 'Oh, I can't move, it might be bad for me politically".

Cummings said he told the president that "all African-American communities are not places of depression and where people are being harmed", expressing his hope that Trump should acknowledge "that most African-American people are doing very, very well".

Americans spent $374 billion on prescription drugs a year ago, but only 17 percent of people shop around for a lower price. "He said, 'I'm going to work with you" - those were his exact words - 'to make this happen'".
