In a press conference on Thursday, August 6, at the Whirlpool Factor, President Donald Trump told a group of supporters that because of his “rich enemies,” his speech at the press conference might be the last time that they’ll see him for a while. Watch the moment he said this in a video below and learn more about what happened.
Trump Said People Might Not See Him Soon & He Has a Lot of ‘Rich Enemies’
The statement was made during Trump’s remarks at the Whirlpool Corporation Manufacturing Plant. Here’s the full context around what he said, according to the White House transcript:
You know, in all fairness, at least the drug companies have to produce a product, and it has to be good product. But the middlemen — well, the rebate that I’m doing cuts out the middlemen, and it reduces costs, and the money goes back to the people purchasing the drugs.
So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.
