President Donald Trump on New Year’s Eve posted this video to America, celebrating the COVID-19 vaccine, Operation Warp Speed and the booming U.S. economy, despite fearmongering media.
In the face of great challenges this year, Americans showed incredible grit, strength, tenacity and resolve, president Trump said at the beginning of the nearly 5-minute long video.
Trump also promoted Operation Warp Speed and the mission’s achievement of developing a coronavirus vaccine before the end of the year. The U.S. has authorized the emergency use of two vaccines, one made by Pfizer and BioNTech and the other by Moderna, but doses will be rationed. Pfizer and BioNTech undertook their own vaccine development, maintaining a more arms-length relationship with the government. However, the companies have since partnered with the federal government to distribute the vaccines.
In his video, Trump also touted the success of the U.S. economy and the stock market throughout the year. “Before the pandemic, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world,” he said. “Now we are doing it again.”
Trump ended his speech by saying, “as long as we remain loyal to our nation, devoted to our citizens and faithful to almighty God, we know that the best is yet to come.” The video comes after Trump cut his Florida holiday vacation short on Wednesday and planned to return to the White House on Thursday, one day earlier than expected. The White House didn’t explain why.
