(PatrioticPost.com)- President Donald Trump hit out at the United States Food and Drug Administration and the Democrats on Monday, slamming them for playing politics with the lives of millions of Americans and purposely delaying the announcement of a successful COVID-19 vaccine.
After mobilizing teams of experts and walking back regulatory barrier that stopped the quick development of a safe vaccine, known as Operation Warp Speed, President Donald Trump allowed American scientists and pharmaceutical companies to move at unprecedented speed in their vaccine development and testing. He repeatedly promises that a vaccine would be announced by the end of the year and was mocked and derided for it.
And yet, immediately after the media declared that Joe Biden had won the presidential election, pharmaceutical company Pfizer announced they had developed a vaccine that was 90% effective and would be authorized by the end of the month. Pfizer officially announced the early results of its vaccine tests, showing the vaccine to be effective.
“The @US_FDA and the Democrats didn’t want to have me get a Vaccine WIN, prior to the election, so instead it came out five days later – As I’ve said all along!” President Donald Trump announced.

Hard to disagree, isn’t it?
On Monday morning, Pfizer announced that based on a study of 43,538 participants, the new vaccine may be as much as 90% effective in protecting people from contracting the virus. The company also attempted to portray itself as not having benefited from the Operation Warp Speed operation put in place by President Donald Trump.
But that was a lie.
Senior vice president of Pfizer Kathrin Jansen told the New York Times that they were “never part of the Warp Speed” but the comments were walked back by the company, claiming that the far-left New York Times had taken her comments out of context.
Now that’s not like the New York Times, is it…?
In July, Pfizer released a press statement saying that they are one of the many vaccine manufacturers participating in Operation Warp Speed.
The president talked a lot about companies working to find vaccine. I never went into the details of Operation Warp Speed and the search for a vaccine
But I do remember companies involved because Trump mentioned them a lot.
I never doubted that Pfizer was involved.

Could they have been sitting on this news, waiting until the election results were announced? President Trump thinks so.
