The Hill reports:
President Trump told reporters at the White House Friday that his administration is “looking at” making coronavirus vaccines free to the public.
“We’re looking at that actually,” Trump told reporters before departing for Camp David when asked if he thought vaccines should be free. He did not offer his personal opinion on the matter.
The Trump administration has faced pressure from progressives to ensure the affordability of any eventual vaccine for the coronavirus, which has sickened more than 1.4 million Americans and killed more than 87,000 since the first known case was identified in January.
REPORTER: Should a vaccine be free?
TRUMP: We’re looking at that, actually. But we’re making a lot of progress on vaccines. But we’ll be speaking to you very soon and I think we’re going to have a very good couple of meetings at Camp David. pic.twitter.com/QDd6h071gq
