President Donald Trump claimed — without evidence — that pharmaceutical companies conspired against him by running ads and kept coronavirus vaccine “waited and waited and waited” to release vaccine trial results until after the election, which he falsely claimed he won:
We had big pharma against us; we had the media against us; we had big tech against us; we had a lot of dishonesty against us. But big pharma alone ran millions and millions of dollars in ads… because I told them I’m gonna have to do this, you know, I was put here to do a job. And Pfizer and others way ahead on vaccines, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for me for another four years because FDA would never been able to do what they did. What I forced them to do.
