FDA Head Refutes Trump On Timing Of Vax Approval

ABC News reports:

In an interview with Fox News Saturday, Trump, after seeming to take credit for the speed of the vaccine’s development, said that the Food and Drug Administration could have authorized the shot for emergency use “last week.” “They could have even done it a week sooner,” the president continued.

“We do not feel that this could have been out a week earlier,” Dr. Stephen Hahn, the FDA commissioner, said on ABC’s “This Week.” “We went through our process. We promised the American people that we would do a thorough review of the application and that’s what we did. We followed our process.”
