(RightWing.org) – President Donald Trump’s push to quickly and safely re-open America continues as he cleans up some of his White House staffers. Rick Bright, former vaccine chief, was reassigned to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in late-April. On Friday, the president appointed two new vaccine officials to oversee the manufacturing and distribution efforts of COVID-19 treatments or cures as they are found.
Trump spoke at the Rose Garden on other COVID-19 matters as well.
The new vaccine officials are Dr. Moncef Slaoui, a former head of vaccines for Glaxo-Smith-Kline, a major pharmaceutical corporation, and Army General Gustave Perna, commander of the US Army Materiel Command.
The POTUS also announced the Whtie House initiative “Operation Warp Speed” to develop and distribute a vaccine very quickly. Trump plans to mobilize the US military to distribute the vaccine when it’s made and will focus on older Americans first because they are most vulnerable. Overall, the president covered how the military, public, and private sectors of America will come together to defeat the “invisible enemy.”
Trump has a plan and we’re seeing more of it put into direct action.
