    Donald Trump met with business people from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean Thursday evening as his host Theresa May aimed to impress the U.S. president with Blenheim Palace, the opulent 300-year-old birthplace of World War II leader Winston Churchill. “Mr. President, Sir Winston Churchill once said that ‘to have the United States at our side was, to me, the greatest joy,”’ May told Trump at the dinner, according to her office. Fresh from a NATO summit in Brussels in which he demanded other Western nations double their defense contributions to 4 percent of gross domestic product, May is organizing the formal dinner -- tuxedo and black tie a must -- to talk up trade prospects with the U.S. following Brexit next year.

    Amazon Is Already Undercutting Prices on Over-the-Counter Pills

    Median prices for over-the-counter, private-brand medicine sold by Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. and CVS Health Corp. were about 20 percent higher than Basic Care, the over-the-counter drug line sold exclusively by Amazon, according to a report Friday by Jefferies Group analysts. Last week, Amazon announced that it was buying PillPack, a pharmacy company that will give it an entry point into the U.S.’s $328.6 billion market for prescription drugs.
