…we have this, pulled from Noah Higgins-Dunn’s article for cnbc.com:
- President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced the U.S. government will purchase 100 million doses of Moderna’s experimental coronavirus vaccine.
- Moderna separately said the deal for its vaccine, mRNA-1273, is worth $1.53 billion and will give the federal government the option to purchase up to 400 million additional doses.
- The U.S. government’s deal with Moderna follows similar agreements it’s made with pharmaceutical giants Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson and other drug makers for their potential Covid-19 vaccines.
In other words, President Trump is aggressively lining up the vaccines being tested by major pharmaceutical companies so that, if they turn out to be effective, they can most expeditiously be made available to U.S. citizens.
Does that look like Trump is doing nothing about COVID-19 to you?
And let’s not forget that this comes after Trump successfully brought us from a scarcity of ventilators to a surplus in just a couple of months (why was there a scarcity when he took office? Whose fault was that?), convinced/coerced manufacturers like 3M to produce a huge number of face masks as quickly as possible, and provided temporary hospital facilities to states where the virus was hitting hardest.
You might also remember that at least three Democrat governors of major states that were among the hardest-hit by COVID-19 – Andrew Cuomo of New York, Phil Murphy of California and Gavin Newsom of California, have made a point of praising President Trump for his efforts.
Ok, now we can go back to the regularly scheduled broadcast of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer telling us that Trump is doing too little about COVID-19, that what little he’s doing is too late, and it’s all wrong anyway.
The saddest part? There are actually people buying this BS…thus proving there is no shortage of ignorance, or of political partisanship that, er, “trumps” facts.
