CORONAVIRUS/VACCINE: “Because of the pandemic — horrible, horrible invisible enemy — and despite our tremendous success developing a [coronavirus] vaccine years before it was thought evenly remotely possible. Nobody thought it was going to be possible. They said would take five years. ‘Sir, it will take seven years.’ All of our scientists were saying — our advisors, ‘It will take 7 years, 5 years, 10 years maybe.’ Well, we did it just like I said we would. And we had it out years and years before they thought it was possible. And we’re now delivering it to states, including your state, where your governor and government are doing a terrific job in getting it administered in Texas. And Florida is doing great. Some of them are doing great. Some aren’t doing as well, but they have all they can handle. And we get it to them as fast as they need it, and even faster.
But they’re calling it a ‘medical miracle.’ And this has been a difficult year and a very difficult election. The pandemic has made it a very, very difficult year for our country and virtually every country all over the world.”
