Remember how Trump promised to make better…

Remember how Trump promised to make better deals for America, ones in which we would win so much we “may even get tired of winning?” Now his administration, through the Army, is on the brink of making a bad deal, giving French pharmaceutical company, Sanofi the exclusive license to patents and thus a monopoly to sell a vaccine against the Zika virus.

If Mr. Trump allows this deal, Sanofi will be able to charge whatever astronomical price it wants for its vaccine. Millions of people in the United States and around the world will not be able to afford it even though American taxpayers have already spent more than $1 billion on Zika research and prevention efforts, including millions to develop this vaccine.

Before President Trump makes this deal, he must guarantee that Sanofi will not turn around and gouge American consumers, Medicare and Medicaid or our military when it sells the vaccine.
