    Your OP is inaccurate and very misleading.
    Your article states,
    "The Donald Trump administration (underlining mine) offered "large sums of money" to get exclusive access to a coronavirus vaccine being developed by a German company, Die Welt reported Sunday."
    Also in that article,
    "Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, said on Twitter that the Welt report was "wrong."
    They said the Trump administration, not Donald Trump the person. Try to get it correct.

    Who knows exactly what went on behind closed doors but in this time of rumor and confusion, misstating articles for political benefit is unnecessary and not very helpful.

    The article is straight from the bowels of dishonesty and idiocy. It was written for the gullible and naive to make themselves feel batter about their "orange man bad" mentality. This is a good example of the "why tell the truth when a good lie will do" kind of journalism. Trump didn't try to buy anything. Garbage in, garbage out. Quit reading this kind of garbage. When one plays in **** one begins to smell like ****. Don't be that guy.

    German biotech CureVac says it has had no U.S. takeover offer
    FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German biotech firm CureVac said it had not received a takeover offer from the United States after German government sources told Reuters that Washington was looking into how to gain access to an experimental coronavirus vaccine it was developing.

    “CureVac has not received from the U.S. government or related entities an offer before, during and since the Task Force meeting in the White House on March 2,” unlisted CureVac said in a statement issued on Twitter on Monday.

    German firm working on coronavirus vaccine denies US govt takeover offer
    In a tweet Monday, CureVac confirmed it had been one of the companies at the meeting, but said the media reports about an offer were incorrect
    A German company working on a potential vaccine for the new coronavirus denied reports Monday that the US government was angling to acquire it, while German officials sought to ease tensions fueled by the story by insisting the firm would stay in the country.

    German virus vaccine firm denies US made takeover offer
    “CureVac has not received from the U.S. government or related entities an offer before, during and since the task force meeting in the White House on March 2,” the company wrote.

    CureVac on Sunday called the reports “speculation,” issuing a statement saying that it was working to develop a vaccine and was in contact with a global alliance called the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness, “and many other organizations and authorities worldwide.”

    It rejected "allegations about offers for acquisition of the company or its technology,” but that failed to dampen interest in the story, partially fueled by the responses from German officials.

    I hope that we can put the idiocy of the article to rest.
