2020 ELECTION/CORONAVIRUS/DRUGS: “You know, I was put here to do a job. And Pfizer and others were way ahead on [coronavirus] vaccines. You wouldn’t have a vaccine, if it weren’t for me, for another four years because FDA would’ve never been able to do what they did — what I forced them to do.
And Pfizer and others even decided to not assess the results of their vaccine; in other words, not come out with a vaccine until just after the election. That’s because of what I did with favored nations and these other elements, instead of their original plan to assess the data in October.”
