President Trump Makes Remarks on Operation Warp Speed: Planning the Distribution of a Future COVID-19 Vaccine

President Trump, in his first public remarks since President-elect Joe Biden was projected the winner of the election, said the COVID-19 vaccine could be widely available as soon as April, but not in New York  — due to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions. Cuomo has said he won’t take the Trump administration’s word for it that the vaccine is safe, so he’s appointed his own panel to approve it. Several other states are taking the same action. “As soon as April, the vaccine will be available to the entire general population, with the exceptions of places like New York state where, for political reasons, the governor decided to say, and I don’t think it’s good politically, I think it’s very bad from a health point, but he wants to take his time on the vaccine, he doesn’t trust where the vaccine’s coming from,” Mr. Trump said. “… We won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization to do so, and that pains me to say that.”
