"Today I am proud to keep another promise to American people as I sign the Right to Try legislation," Trump said at the signing ceremony at the White House.
The president said his administration has been looking at several bills to address the issue and selected one that does not cater to insurance firms or pharmaceutical companies. Trump stressed he does not care about pharmaceutical businesses.
"I don't care about that. I couldn't care less," he said.
During his speech at the ceremony, Trump addressed two other related issues: the cost of prescription medications and health care reform. He vowed to continue working to reduce health care costs and said major drug manufacturers would make announcements in the coming weeks regarding a significant drop in prescription medication pricing.
