Trump rails against 'big pharma', fraud...and again claims he won the election
In one of his few public appearances since his election defeat, Donald Trump said, without evidence, that 'big pharma' had used negative advertising against him.
Speaking in a White House news briefing, he said: "We won by the way - 70 million votes," before claiming without presenting any evidence, that Democrats "found some ballots...to deter us from doing what is right for the American people".
But, the president refused to take any questions.

Mr. Trump rolled off a list of incomplete voting totals in states that have not yet been called, falsely claimed he won the election and said he would ask the Supreme Court to intervene in the continuing counting of ballots. No call had been made at the time of his comments. Watch his remarks here.
