It’s true what President Trump said, he cut the unnecessary government abusive red tape in half and got it done, I don’t care if you like him or not he did what he said he was gonna do.

The dimwits are famous for their focus groups, commissions and just dragging their feet on everything, we might be in phase 23 of talks before anybody was allowed to work on a vaccine. Trump has been amazing at eliminating the hundreds of steps to get something done and the billions of dollars going to grifters without anything getting done.

God Bless the greatest President this country has ever seen or will ever have! MAGA!

Why if that very stable genius hadn't used his amazin' brain to go to Pfizer and give them the formula fer dat dere vaccine, we'd never have had a vaccine. What a guy!

Donald Trump is the worst President this country has ever had.

He is guilty of criminal negligence & treason.

I might thank Pfizer, I might thank the Germans who funded the research, but I will never thank trump. If anything, he made the need for the vaccine absolutely critical.

^^^He got rid of a lot of the red tape that usually makes approval of vaccines a multi year process. So while Trump did not develop the vaccine, assuming there is one, he did create conditions favorable for others to do so.

The only help in developing the Covid Vaccine that the Federal Government has done so far was $120+ million paid to a "Research Facility" that some guy runs out of his Condo in Florida.
That "Research Facility" is one of the hundreds of Companies that make up the Trump Organization.

It will take years before we are unable to uncover just how much Trump has paid himself from the US Treasury. We know that his staying at his own Golf Courses and charging 5 times the normal room rate has been the only thing keeping his New Jersey and Florida Golf Courses afloat, and that he has already paid himself over 371 times the "Presidential Salary" that he brags about not taking.

That is what will ruin him when the truth comes out!

If "Dr. Sanjay Gupta" is really a neurosurgeon, then why is he CNN's chief medical correspondent?

Did you know that actor Sanjay Gupta was in the 2011 movie Contagion?

Contagion is a 2011 American thriller film directed by Steven Soderbergh. The plot concerns the spread of a virus transmitted by respiratory droplets and fomites, attempts by medical researchers and public health officials to identify and contain the disease, the loss of social order in a pandemic, and the introduction of a vaccine to halt its spread.

"Dr. Gupta" is a paid propagandist and disinformation agent.
