Drug plan touted by Trump in presidential debate hangs on Canadian insulin

President Donald Trump’s “America First Health Plan” which he said was “big stuff” during the first presidential debate on Tuesday, could affect drug supply, including insulin, in Canada.

Early in last night’s debate, moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News asked the president about his health care plan, to which Trump responded, “I’m cutting drug prices. I’m going with favoured nations, which no president has the courage to do because you’re going against big pharma. Drug prices will be coming down 80 or 90 per cent… I’ll give you an example: insulin.”
