Fox News anchor John Roberts provided evidence to dispute claims from the Biden campaign that he lied about Trump capping insulin prices.

The feud began after Roberts noted Trump had signed an executive order in 2020 capping Medicare copays for insulin, which the Biden campaign denied.

“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 Biden campaign wrote.

Roberts presented receipts, including a CMS press release from May 2020 announcing lowered insulin costs through 2021 under Trump’s leadership.

“Today, under President Trump’s leadership, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that over 1,750 standalone Medicare Part D prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans with prescription drug coverage have applied to offer lower insulin costs through the Part D Senior Savings Model for the 2021 plan year. Across the nation, participating enhanced Part D prescription drug plans will provide Medicare beneficiaries access to a broad set of insulins at a maximum $35 copay for a month’s supply, from the beginning of the year through the Part D coverage gap. The model follows on the Trump Administration’s previously announced 13.5 percent decline in the average monthly basic Part D premium since 2017 to the lowest level in seven year,” the statement added.

He also played footage from the White House event where the American Diabetes Association CEO praised Trump’s action.

Roberts did not mention Biden paused the Trump order on day two as president, but has since taken credit for the cost-cutting initiative over three years.
