President Donald Trump’s point man in the quest to reduce drug prices for American consumers clashed Tuesday with a disbelieving senator, who said the White House’s blueprint for battling Big Pharma is bogus.

In May he released a plan called American Patients First that he claimed would give Medicare "new tools to negotiate lower prices" — but does not allow Medicare to barter directly with drug companies to lower prescription prices.
