Trump Said He Got Pfizer to Roll Back Prices. Not Really.

President Trump called out Pfizer Inc. in a tweet on Monday for a series of drug price increases. He tweeted a day later that Pfizer had agreed to roll them back after he had a phone discussion with its CEO. Pfizer released a press release soon afterward that added details. The price hikes aren’t dead — they’re deferred until Jan. 1, unless the administration’s drug-pricing blueprint comes into effect first.
