The Donald Trump campaign embraced the “America First” motto very early on. It went well with the “Make America Great Again” slogan.
And throughout his tenure, Trump has tried to remain true to both. He has often touted his dedication to the American people as well.
Now, he’s made another move that will likely resonate with his followers.
For months, scientists and doctors have been racing to prepare a coronavirus vaccine, and we’re thankfully close to getting one.
However, the question remained: who should get it first, and when?
Well, that question has been answered – at least in part – by a new Trump executive order.
Via Fox News:
President Trump is expected to sign an executive order Tuesday that will ensure all Americans have access to the coronavirus vaccine before the U.S. government begins aiding nations around the world.
Senior administration officials said that Trump’s focus remains firmly on American citizens.
This comes not long after last week’s Food and Drug Administration meeting concerning Pfizer and BioNTech’s application for authorization of the vaccine.
That authorization could arrive as early as Friday, and FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn said things are “moving very quickly.”
