Trump tries to buy coronavirus vaccine monopoly

This 5 March 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

10 times Trump downplayed the coronavirus

Over the past month, President Trump has regularly sought to downplay the coronavirus threat with a mix of facts and false statements.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

A German company that is trying hard to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus is said to have been approached by the United States government. The US Americans exclusively want to buy the rights to a vaccine and the German government is trying to prevent that, the German [right wing] newspaper Welt am Sonntag reports based on sources from government circles.

Trump is said to attempt to get the vaccine exclusively for the US, according to Welt am Sonntag sources. Scientists from the CureVac company from Tübingen are said to be enticed by US Americans with high financial offers.

Germany tries to stop US from luring away firm seeking coronavirus vaccine: here.

If Donald Trump would really care about the lives of people in the USA threatened by the coronavirus, then. instead of spending taxpayers’ money on bribing German scientists or on a $1.5 trillion Big Banking bailout, he would have Medicare For All; like Bernie Sanders wants, but which Trump (and Biden) do not want. Making the coronavirus vaccine, when it will exist, free for everyone, inside and outside of the USA. Instead of using United States taxpayers’ dollars to get some US Big Pharma corporation a private monopoly of the vaccine; making it affordable only to United States rich people like Trump.

U.S. ‘TRIED TO GET ACCESS’ TO GERMAN VACCINE RESEARCH The Trump administration attempted to persuade a German firm developing a possible vaccine for the coronavirus to move its research work to the United States, raising fears in Berlin that President Donald Trump was trying to assure that any inoculation would be available first, and perhaps exclusively, in the United States.

The U.S. would be first to get a French drugmaker’s vaccine if it works, and France is not happy.

Many Germans may die from coronavirus, German government says.

The US has declared a vaccine war on the world. Only Britain and the US are refusing to ‘pool’ research internationally in the hope of making money on a coronavirus vaccine — but their power to keep ‘intellectual property’ private is waning, writes PRABIR PURKAYASTHA.

  1. Here is why tonight is so important:

    Joe Biden and I will offer differing solutions to critical issues for two hours.

    And, unfortunately, the coronavirus crisis is highlighting how stark some of those differences actually are.

    I support Medicare for All to make health care a human right for every American. Joe Biden has suggested he would veto it.

    I believe that we are only as safe as the least-insured person in America. Joe Biden’s health care plan would leave 10 million people uninsured.

    I believe that we must take on the greed and profiteering of the pharmaceutical industry. Joe Biden does not. In fact, he takes their money to fund his campaign.

    On issue after issue, we will be able to show the American people why it is our campaign that has what it takes to win this election and transform our country.

    I will be making that case on stage tonight. And I am asking you to show your support for that case by making a financial contribution to our campaign today.

    I hope that you will tune in to watch tonight’s debate. It is the most important one yet, and we need all the support we can to demonstrate the strength of our campaign and our ideas.

    Thank you for all you do for our campaign, for our movement, and for our country.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders
