Former President Donald Trump faced a swift and sharp rebuttal after claiming credit for the reduction in insulin costs, a move that was promptly debunked by the Biden campaign and fact-checkers. On Saturday, June 8, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to assert that he was responsible for lowering insulin prices for millions of Americans.

“Low INSULIN PRICING was gotten for millions of Americans by me, and the Trump Administration, not by Crooked Joe Biden. He had NOTHING to do with it. It was all done long before he so sadly entered office. All he does is try to take credit for things done by others, in this case, ME!” Trump alleged.

Raw Story reported that this bold claim was met with immediate backlash from the Biden-Harris campaign. A statement from Biden-Harris HQ labeled Trump’s assertion as desperate and delusional, clarifying that it was President Biden’s historic law that lowered insulin costs.

The statement emphasized, “FACT CHECK: This is a blatant lie. Trump did not cap insulin costs, President Biden did for seniors through the Inflation Reduction Act. Trump’s Project 2025 wants to repeal it, which would raise insulin costs for over a million Americans.”

The online community also joined in to debunk Trump’s claim. Twitter user @ConserveLetters highlighted the inaccuracy, tweeting, “Fact Check: The convicted felon is lying. His insulin measures targeted ~1,400 clinics. It helped SOME low-income patients but NOT the majority. Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act capped insulin at $35/month for ALL Medicare recipients. He’s taking credit for Biden’s achievements.”

Legal analyst @JJohnsonLaw added, “NOT ONLY IS THIS A LIE, TRUMP IS RUNNING ON REPEALING BIDEN’S ACCOMPLISHMENT. SHAMELESS.” Additionally, @realjakecobb provided a detailed fact check, stating, “Biden and Democrats actually passed legislation that reduces the price of drug prescriptions and capped the price of insulin for millions of Americans! Trump instituted some policies for capping insulin but they were extremely limited.

In other words, not millions, thousands. Expect to hear this talking point from MAGA this week. Be prepared with the actual facts.” The swift and overwhelming response underscores the tension between the two administrations over healthcare policies.

The Inflation Reduction Act, a key piece of legislation from the Biden administration, has capped insulin prices at $35 per month for all Medicare recipients, a significant move aimed at reducing prescription drug costs for millions of Americans. Trump’s attempt to reframe this achievement as his own has not only been rebuffed by official channels but also by a vigilant public eager to set the record straight.

The ongoing discourse highlights the critical need for accurate information as voters navigate the competing narratives in the lead-up to the next election cycle.
