President Trump on Wednesday questioned the need for the Food and Drug Administration to issue tougher standards for the emergency authorization of a coronavirus vaccine, saying the move appeared “political” and would need to be approved by the White House.

“We’re looking at that. That has to be approved by the White House. We may or may not approve it. That sounds like a political move,” Trump told reporters at a White House briefing when asked if he agreed with the FDA’s plan to issue the new guidelines, reported by The Washington Post earlier this week.

Trump went on to assert that the standards would cause unnecessary delay in the delivery of a possible vaccine. Multiple companies are currently in clinical trials for vaccine candidates.
Pure Trumpian politics. Need to get that vaccine out before Nov. 3 so he can claim to be the country's savior instead of being a mass murderer.
