"Prescription drug prices are out of control," Trump said in a Cabinet meeting on Monday. "The drug prices have gone through the roof."
"You look at the same exact drug by the same exact company, made in the same exact box and sold some place else, sometimes it's a fraction of what we pay in this country. Meaning as usual the world is taking advantage of the United States."
Trump said American consumers are paying multiples of what other countries are paying for the same drugs.
"The drug companies frankly are getting away with murder. We want to bring our prices down to what other countries are paying," he added.
This isn't the first time Trump has commented on drug prices. He promised in March he would bring pricing down.
The iShares Nasdaq Biotech ETF is up 27 percent through midday Monday this year compared with the S&P 500's 14 percent return.
