    I’m not sure Biden wants a political firestorm for Eliminating an order to protect Americans first. I double dog dare him to do that.

    Is that why Trump didn't sign up for more?

    Biden, Merkel or Macron or who ever understands, we have to stop the virus in the industrialized countries first, they are the motor of the world and than move on to the rest of the world. Every body understands that. The industrialized countries are the ones who produce the vaccine.
    We have to straighten our house first, so we can produce, 10s of billions of vaccines the world needs. Everybody knows that.

    Considering how verdictive he is, I would say yes.
    100 millions, which is 50 millions, thats a rather low number.
    My guess out side warp, you got the minimum bet.

    But than I have not heard of any huge buys.

    So I guess Trump gave Moderna a billion and a half dollars to do the same thing Pfizer did for nothing? For this he wants an atta - boy?

    According to tonight's ABC news the Dirty Donald administration DID NOT opt to increase their order with Pfizer above the !00,000,000 million order. Two deliveries of 50,000,000 doses.

    The vaccines are actually produced by the private sector, who then sell the vaccine to whatever country buys it from them, hence why they are already being sold and distributed in the UK.

    What an idiotic move, considering two of the three vaccines are being developed in foreign countries. This moron would step on his own grandmother's face, if he thought he could pat himself on the back on national TV for it.

    Pfizer is an American company.

    Do you have a source to prove where the manufacturing is occuring?

    "
    Pfizer has retained significant in-house manufacturing assets. It plans to make raw materials, the mRNA active, and finished doses for BNT162b2, the partnership’s vaccine, at its own plants in Andover, Massachusetts; Kalamazoo, Michigan; and St. Louis. It will also use its site in Belgium for the European market.

    In contrast, Moderna, a biotech firm with nothing like Pfizer’s manufacturing base, has contracted with Lonza, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical services firms, to produce much of the mRNA active for its vaccine, mRNA-1273. Lonza will make the active at its complex in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and at its main site in Visp, Switzerland.

    He didn't say Pfizer wasn't an American company, he said the vaccine is being manufactured by two companies. Which is correct, the vaccine is being produced by Pfizer and BioNTech.

    He’ll just cancel the order for Trump supporters. After all, elections have consequences and Trump supporters care nothing for non-Trump supporters nor the Constitution.

    It would be great news if it were true that Trump could just force a private company to follow an Executive Order.

    Alas, they can't. And Trump fumbled the ball in summer, when Pfizer offered to sell more vaccines, and this administration passed.

    That's pretty funny considering what Trump said about New York.

    LOL! Seriously, though, he is not going to do that, because he is not like Trump. Trump already said that he would consider withholding the vaccine from NY state to punish its governor.

    Of course. That’s the difference between a crying baby like Dirty Donnie and an adult.

    Yes, it is an American Coy, but the entity producing the vaccine in Europe and a joint venture between the US Coy and a European one.

    Pfizer took 1.96 billion in an upfront payment for it's development of the vaccine.

    No, they didn't take $1.96 billion for vaccine development. The money is guaranteed payment for delivering vaccines and mass-producing them before efficacy was established. It looks like the latter, mass pre-production part was over-sold to the public.

    BTW: How is Trump going to force private companies with EO to sell to the US first? Inquiring minds would want to know. So far, it looks like the UK's "socialist" system has beat the US to be the first vaccine rollout of the western world. Can you just imagine the amount of Trump bragging had it been the US?

    That is the element that confused me. I don't see how an executive order could actually implement what the quotes suggested. Has anyone seen the text of this order? Does it actually seek to implement something practical or is it just spouting "good" intentions to grab headlines and distract from reality?

    The US is going to be relegated to stealing shipments at airports. Just when you thought Trump couldn't screw things up more than he already has, he totally outdoes himself.
