Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Peter Welch (D-Vt.) met privately for about an hour with Trump and his newly appointed HHS secretary, Tom Price, to discuss ways to combat high drug prices. "That four years is a long time", Cummings said.
Cummings said Trump was "enthusiastic, and he was clearly aware of the problem, and. he made it clear to us that he wanted to do something about it".

Cummings replied in a statement, " I have no idea why President Trump would make up a story about me like he did today". Cummings said he also addressed the president's allegations of massive voter fraud in the November election, telling Trump the president can not investigate voter fraud without tackling the real issue of voter suppression, which has penetrated many communities unjustly.
The lawmakers said that if Trump has deleted tweets that aren't archived then it could be a violation of the 1978 law.
