President Donald Trump sent a video message of support for the Gates Global Vaccine Alliance after Johnson personally reached out. Although Trump did not specify the US pledge amount in his message, the United States Agency for International Development had announced in February a pledge of US $1.16 billion.
”There are no borders, [the virus] doesn’t discriminate, it’s been it’s nasty but we can all take care of it together. It’s great to be partnering with [GAVI]. We will work hard, we will work strong…good luck, let’s get the answer,” said Trump, under fire from critics at home and abroad for his handling of massive civil unrest in the wake of the police murder of a black Minneapolis man.
A June 5 press release declares the funding will “play a major role in the rollout of a future Cover-19 vaccine”:
“We have secured a fantastic US $8.8. billion for GAVI’s work over the next five years and I’d like to thank everyone very, very much,” said UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at yesterday’s event.
While much of the money will go to funding GAVI’s routine immunization programmes, the public-private partnership is also poised to play a major role in the rollout of a future Covid-19 vaccine.
No wonder Trump keeps Fauci around, he needs someone to fondle Gates’s balls for him while he’s ‘busy’ in the Whitehouse:
