The Hill article Bob Price serves as chief executive of the American Chemistry Council, the country’s largest chemical industry trade group.
Price served as the director of the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board during President Trump’s first term.
Former U.N. chemical weapons inspector Robert Price said he believes the Trump administration is “willing to go after anyone who might be trying to undermine Trump’s administration.”
“The president has been going after anyone at every turn, but I think the president is willing to go to the extent of going after the president,” Price told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on “This Week” on Sunday.
“I don’t think he’s going to tolerate the kind of scrutiny that comes with the office of the president.
He’s going after anybody who’s trying to discredit the president and undermine the president’s presidency.”
Price said that “the president has no interest in having a strong, independent government.”
“I think he would rather have the government run by people who are very loyal to him and the president than loyal to the government,” Price added.
“And that’s not a bad idea.”
Price, who left the White House after serving a term as the chemical safety director, was hired by Trump to serve on the board.
He said he didn’t know Trump would pick Price as his nominee to head the FDA and said the agency’s leadership should focus on improving safety standards and preventing further contamination.
Price said his role in the chemical industry will not change “in the near future.”
He added that he does not believe Trump would support the nomination of Price to head FDA, even if he is confirmed.
“If it comes down to it, I don’t see any reason why the president would support this guy to be FDA director,” Price said.
The Hill’s Mike Allen reports that Price will have a key role in shaping the Trump EPA.
A senior Trump administration official confirmed the nomination to The Hill on Saturday.
The official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, said that Price would work closely with the administration on issues of safety and quality.
Price’s confirmation is likely to bring a major boost to the industry, which already is reeling from the FDA’s botched response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump has said the FDA should focus more on protecting consumers, not regulating the industry.
Last week, Trump appointed a new FDA commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, who has been a staunch advocate for the industry and who has clashed with Price on safety issues.
