Watch: Dr. Fauci's Boss Enrages Dems And Praised Trump, Not Biden- 'Operation Warp-Speed'
Dr. Anthonny Fauci's boss did what Fauci has refused to and recognized one of Trump's many major accomplishments- 'Operation Warp Speed'. You know, the program that motivated pharmaceutical companies to get a safe and working vaccine out within a year's time? The same program that Democrats and the MSM mocked and originally deemed 'unsafe' before instantly changing their tune the moment Biden took office.
Dr. Francis Collins said that Trump's ability to get a vaccine out in such a short time frame was 'breathtaking'.
When Axios editor-in-chief Nicholas Johnston asked Collins about the Trump administration's record, "Mask-wearing aside, what did they get right?"
Collins quickly responded that the previous administration's Operation Warp Speed, which was a surprise — both in its necessity and its ambition — to many in the NIH, was a big winner in his book.
"The Operation Warp Speed, for which I give a great deal of credit to [former HHS] Secretary [Alex] Azar, was an effort that many of us were not initially convinced was going to be necessary," Collins said.
The director pointed out that the agency actually looked at the Trump plan as something akin to the "Manhattan Project" because of its enormity and complexity.
"And it was thought about as a 'Manhattan Project,'" Collins continued. "Those words were used sometimes to describe what needed to happen in order to get all parts of the government together in an unprecedented way to test up to six vaccines in rigorous trials — and to do this at-risk manufacturing so that if any of those trials happen to work, you would already have doses ready to go into arms. That would not be the way things are traditionally done."
Collins said the effort "was an incredibly important step forward that the administration deserves credit for, because that did motivate a lot of actions, a lot of coordination."
The fact that there were two vaccines ready to go by December "is just breathtaking," he added.
"That that got done in 11 months from when we first knew about this virus is at least five years faster than it's ever been before," Collins said.
"That got done in 11 months," he said. Adding that "that's at least 5 years faster than it has ever been done before".
Unlike Fauci, Dr. Collins who is the director of the National Institutes of Health doesn't seem to care about politics and playing favorites. It was a nice change, for once, but I'm sure Democrats are stomping made that Trump received any credit at all.
