President Trump called a press release on Friday to announce the implementation of his rules on drug pricing, which he said could save consumers hundreds or thousands of dollars a year, but it was avoided with regret against Big Pharma, which is guilty of sabotaging his re-election campaign. because its policies harm their business.
In particular, he attacked Pfizer, the largest drug company in the United States, just two hours after his press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, asked for credit for the development of the new COVID- 19 of Pfizer on behalf of the administration's Operation Warp Speed program. Trump has accused Pfizer of waiting to announce the success of the phase III vaccine trial until the day after the presidential election in order to avoid helping.
Apparently, in his mind, it didn’t work. Trump has proclaimed that he won the election anyway, as he has done all along, despite the leadership command of Joe Biden in both the popular and Electoral College votes.
“Pfizer and others have even decided not to assess the results of their vaccine, in other words, not to come up with a vaccine, just right after the election,” Trump said. "This is because of what I did with favored nations and these other elements. Instead of their original plan to evaluate the data in October. So they were going to come out in October, but they decided to delay it because of what they're doing. I do, which is good for me because frankly it's just a very big thing. "
Trump made that accusation on the same day that Pfizer submitted his COVID-19 vaccine to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for emergency use authorization, the first company to do so.
