Fauci on Trump's Vaccine Boasts: No One's Seen the Data - 2020-09-22
In recent weeks, President Donald Trump has boasted about his administration's efforts to produce a safe COVID-19 vaccine while simultaneously declaring that the distribution of that vaccine to the American public would happen "very soon."
But Trump has not seen the vaccine data.
In fact, no one in the administration has seen it. In an interview with The Daily Beast Monday evening, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there is only one individual who has access to the data that would show whether a vaccine is viable.
