US President Donald Trump accused his rival in the upcoming presidential election from the Democrats, Joseph Biden, that if he wins, creating a vaccine in the US will slow down, and the pandemic will last longer as a result.
“Biden will close the country (restore strict sanitary restrictions), will delay the creation of a vaccine and prolong the pandemic,” the American leader said, speaking to supporters in Michigan.
Earlier, the US President said that the vaccine would be ready in the US only after the General election scheduled for November 3, as the political situation hinders the process. Before that, The US food and drug administration announced that it wants to tighten the standards that a coronavirus vaccine must meet to be approved by the regulator. Trump responded by criticizing the Agency’s actions, accusing it of being politicized.
