Shkreli was also arrested last December for his involvement with another drugmaker, Retrophin, which federal prosecutors said he operated like a quasi-Ponzi scheme.
Trump may not welcome Shkreli’s endorsement after calling him a “spoiled brat” last year.
“He looks like a spoiled brat to me,” Trump said in September. “You want to know the truth? He looks like a spoiled brat.
“That guy is nothing. He’s zero. He’s nothing. He ought to be ashamed of himself.”
