Outgoing US President Donald Trump on Saturday said any other administration would have taken five years to produce a vaccine against Covid-19, while his administration ensured a ‘great and secure vaccine far ahead of the schedule’. “Many lives to be saved, but we are in a position when they’re. Stop playing politics!” he tweeted amid the ongoing vaccine face-off with New York.

 

I LOVE NEW YORK! As we all know, the Trump Administration has produced a great and secure VACCINE far ahead of schedule. Another Administration would have taken five years. The problem is, @NYGovCuomo said that he’ll delay the usage of it, and other states WANT IT NOW…

On Friday, Trump said Covid-19 vaccine will be to be had in April for all of the country but not to New York.

“As soon as April the vaccine will be to be had to all of the general population aside from places like New York State, where, for political reasons, the governor made up our minds to say, and I don’t think it’s good from a political standpoint, but he wants to take his time with the vaccine,” Trump said. “We won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization to take action, and that pains me to say that. This can be a very successful, amazing vaccine and 90% and more. But, so the governor, Governor Cuomo should tell us what he’s in a position for it.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had earlier raised question over Trump’s plan to speed up the vaccine plan. He had said that he would set up his own panel to approve the Covid-19 vaccine.

“I LOVE NEW YORK! As we all know, the Trump Administration has produced a great and secure VACCINE far ahead of schedule. Another Administration would have taken five years. The problem is, @NYGovCuomo said that he’ll delay the usage of it, and other states WANT IT NOW. We cannot waste time and can only give to those states that will use the Vaccine immediately. Due to this fact the New York delay. Many lives to be saved, but we are in a position when they’re. Stop playing politics!” Trump tweeted.
