The White House is lauding a “breakthrough” on a Chinese virus pandemic therapeutic that President Donald Trump will announce in a news conference Sunday night.
“News conference with President @realDonaldTrump at 6 pm tomorrow concerning a major therapeutic breakthrough on the China Virus. Secretary Azar and Dr. Hahn will be in attendance,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany posted on Twitter late Saturday evening.
Early Saturday, the president insinuated that the FDA might be delaying the potential CV-19 virus treatments to interfere in the election. For any other president at any other time it would seem a ludicrous statement to make, but don’t forget that the deep state leaked information every day of his presidency for the first two years, they threw a phony Russian collusion story at him, which ate up the first two and a half years of his administration, and then they impeached him for something he didn’t do, but what his rival Joe Biden actually did do. So, for this president to lay out a claim that the FDA is slow walking a breakthrough to harm him in the election is not far fetched. Everything the deep state has done, including Democrat politicians and their allies in the media, everything, has been to hurt his reelection chances since the day he was inaugurated.
“The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics. Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer until after November 3rd. Must focus on speed, and saving lives!,” Trump tweeted.
The FDA last week halted an emergency approval for blood plasma as a treatment for the disease.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s comments “very dangerous.” Did anyone think she would say anything else?
“The FDA has a responsibility to approve drugs, judging on their safety and their efficacy, not by a declaration from the White House about speed and politicizing the FDA,” Pelosi said during a news conference Saturday on Capitol Hill. This is a woman who got Democratic leadership to kneel while wearing African Kente cloth from Ghana during a photo op to politicize the death of George Floyd.
Pelosi has a responsibility to Democrats make Trump look bad no matter what the issue. She’s a disgrace for a Speaker who hasn’t gotten anything done in two years.
“This was a very dangerous statement on the part of the president. Even for him, it went beyond the pale in terms of how he would jeopardize the health and well-being of the American people,” she continued.
In another Tweet on Saturday, Trump said “many doctors and studies disagree” with the FDA “revoking emergency use authorization” of hydroxychloroquine, an unproven anti-malarial drug the president has pitched as a possible CV-19 treatment.
