Fears rise that Trump will incite a global vaccine brawl

When global leaders gathered virtually last month at the behest of the World Health Organization to commit to distributing a future coronavirus vaccine in an internationally equitable way, the United States didnít join in.

On Monday, the European Union is hosting a gathering for countries to pledge funding for research into vaccines and treatments for Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. But once again the U.S. government isnít expected to participate.

The Trump administrationís apparent lack of interest in cooperation has alarmed global health officials and diplomats as they seek to end a pandemic that has disabled economies and killed more than 240,000 people worldwide. The concerns are only deepening as President Donald Trump and his aides squabble with China and the WHO over the origins of the virus.

The fear is that Trump will be content with allowing the race to develop and distribute the vaccine to devolve into a global contest -- and that poorer countries will be left behind in the rush to procure doses. In essence: that the presidentís ďAmerica FirstĒ view of world affairs as an atavistic scramble for power will lead to unnecessary suffering and death.

1. Watch China develop a successful vaccine and not sell it to us because of trump

How fitting would that be?

He is the literal worst.

2. I would not be surprised if Trump will push a vaccine that has

Kushnerís invisible name all over it.

They aim to make big money from CV-19.

8. I think the idea of a great businessman should be

shown some light here. This is how businessmen function whether in government or business and this is why so many are dying. That point needs to be heard daily.

3. Just wait, too, for the antivaxxer crowd....

If they lose their shit over vaccines that have been around since Eisenhower, just imagine how they'll be over the COVID one! And many of them are, no doubt, Trumpers.

I've stocked up on popcorn! Lol

4. Damn fool!

What's most important is where and when the virus ends.

Sure, I didn't go to Wharton like he did, but maybe I need some crayons to explain it to our stable genius.

5. Whatever is the most fucked-up, shitty-human-being thing to do in any given situation ...

There is a 100% chance that Needy Amin will promulgate and pursue that option.

All that beast knows and strives for is to be the biggest fucking asshole in the history of all fucking assholes.
