Trump’s first intervention. The outgoing president of the United States, Donald Trump, sought this Friday to capitalize on the advances against a vaccine against covid-19, in his first appearance in eight days and without, for the moment, having recognized his defeat in the presidential elections of the past 3 of November.

Without making a single mention of the elections or their results, the president stressed in the White House that in the last nine months his Administration “has begun the largest mobilization in the history of the United States in the development and manufacture of therapies and vaccines. in record time ”.

He stressed that the operation launched by his Government for the manufacture and distribution of vaccines and treatments for covid-19, the so-called “Operation Warp Speed”, is “unmatched anywhere in the world.”

“The leaders of other countries have called me to congratulate us for what we have been able to do, and we have helped many countries with respirators and all the problems they are having,” he said.

In that sense, he wanted to attribute to his Government the progress made by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, which on Monday announced that its vaccine against covid-19 is 90% effective, above what is required by US regulators, which allows predicting rapid emergency authorization for public access.

“As a result of Operation Warp Speed, Pfizer announced on Monday that its China virus vaccine is more than 90% effective. This far exceeds any expectation, “Trump said.

And he criticized that Pfizer had said that it was not part of that operation of his Administration, which he described as “unfortunate misrepresentation, (well) they are part.”

“That’s why we gave them $ 1.95 billion; it was an unfortunate mistake they made when they said they would work towards an emergency clearance. “

According to the Snopes fact-check page, used by the US media, Pfizer has received 1.95 billion dollars for the manufacture and distribution of the vaccine in the US, but this does not mean that the Government has allocated funds for its research. and development.

In Trump’s intervention, in the Rose Garden of the White House, experts from his Government also spoke, only about covid-19, and questions from journalists were not accepted.

This Friday the projections of the American media of the results of the elections in the last two remaining states, Georgia and North Carolina, were released.

The president-elect, Democrat Joe Biden, won the presidential elections in Georgia, while Trump did it in North Carolina, which does not change the result of the national elections in which the former vice president was declared the winner, according to projections of media.

Biden accumulates 306 delegates and Trump, 232 of the total of 538 that make up the Electoral College. In the United States, the candidate who adds a minimum of 270 delegates to that body is proclaimed the winner of the Presidency.

Trump has not yet acknowledged his defeat and claims that there has been fraud, without offering proof.
