President Trump has had enough with the dithering over the highly anticipated coronavirus vaccine’s approval and distribution.
Expressing his frustration with the Food and Drug Administration’s delays in the approval process, Trump ordered FDA commissioner, Dr. Stephen Hahn, to “Get the d*** vaccines out NOW.”
“While my pushing the money-drenched but heavily bureaucratic FDA saved five years in the approval of NUMEROUS great new vaccines, it is still a big, old, slow turtle,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“Get the d*** vaccines out NOW, Dr. Hahn,” Trump exclaimed. “Stop playing games and start saving lives!!!”
Many health experts declared in the early days of the pandemic that a vaccine is the only way for the nation to return to normal. Because of that, President Trump launched Operation Warp Speed, an initiative designed to develop and approve a vaccine at an unheard-of speed.
The initiative has been successful, with pharmaceutical company Pfizer developing a vaccine that is now on the brink of approval in just months.
However, as with everything coronavirus-related, the approval process has been bogged down in politics and bureaucratic nonsense as the nation plunges into another deadly wave of the virus.
Breitbart reported on Friday:
The FDA panel of advisers voted in favor Thursday of granting Pfizer and Biotech emergency authorization of the coronavirus vaccine, but the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices still has to recommend it.
A meeting is scheduled for Friday and Sunday.
President Trump also hit former Vice President Joe Biden’s attempts to claim the Operation Warp Speed success as his own, tweeting:
The Swine Flu (H1N1), and the attempt for a vaccine by the Obama Administration, with Joe Biden in charge, was a complete and total disaster. Now they want to come in and take over one of the “greatest and fastest medical miracles in modern day history.” I don’t think so!
“I just want to stop the world from killing itself!” the president concluded.
