Trump said anyone who engaged in criminal behavior during the rally would be held accountable.In a strong rebuke to Trump earlier Monday, the chief executive of Merck & Co Inc., one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies, resigned from a business panel led by the president.Frazier would now have more time to focus on lowering "ripoff" drug prices, Trump tweeted.
