Donald Trump joined Michael Savage on his program “The Savage Nation” earlier this week to discuss Trump’s proficiency in making deals and how his skill would solve America’s problems with China, Russia and ISIS. Before Trump finished the interview, Savage implored Trump to consider him for the head of the National Institutes of Health “when” Trump is elected president.
Savage is extremely unhappy with the current state of the NIH: “We have such corruption right now in science itself that there’s virtually almost no real, honest science anymore, and the best evidence I have for that is the fake global warming research. Almost every study [that] comes out is warped, it’s all corrupt.” Savage proposed that Trump appoint him head of the NIH so that he can “clean up” the corruption and America can have “real science and real medicine again.”
Trump responded, “I think that’s great,” adding, “I hear so much about the NIH and it’s terrible.” He told Savage that he knew he would bring “common sense” to the institution.
