Why is Trump demanding the Brits give him access to their NHS?
What does he plan on doing to it?

Part of it i think is the fact that the NHS gets drugs at lower prices than American healthcare. A few years ago I had a treatement during cancer that opened my eyes on looking up the drug to how privileged I was in the UK.
Filgrastim was approved for medical use in the United States in 1991. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system. The wholesale cost in the developing world is about US$3.95 to US$94.66 per dose. In the United Kingdom it cost the NHS about £50.15 per 300 μg dose. In the United States treatment costs more than US$200. Filgrastim biosimilar medications are also available.
If they can get the NHS to be paying higher prices (up to 4x more on this example) there is a very good profit drug companies could make on a deal.

Because he's a capitalist pig who is offended by the notion of those less-privileged than himself receiving the same healthcare benefits.

More lies and fearmongering from desperate leftists. They represent the real threat to socialised medicine.
