The company, in a statement, said the price increases would effectively be postponed at least until the beginning of 2019 in order "to give the president an opportunity to work on his blueprint to strengthen the healthcare system and provide more access to patients".
President Donald Trump criticized Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies for raising prices in a tweet Monday afternoon, vowing that the government would respond. The pharmaceutical giant said the drugs will return to their pre-July 1 prices "as soon as technically possible" and stay in place until either the end of the year or until elements of the Trump-backed health care blueprint go into effect. "And there's very little bidding on drugs", Trump said during an event at Trump Tower in NY. "In addition, the price declines the company took as of July 1 will remain in effect". "Pfizer is rolling back price hikes, so American patients don't pay more", Trump wrote on Twitter.
