Donald Trump has suggested unnamed US officials are conspiring a “political hit” against him by delaying the release of a Covid-19 vaccine after he accused the Food and Drug Administration of political interference by requiring the drug to meet health guidelines.
Addressing a crowd at a campaign rally in Florida on Thursday night, the president said: "They're trying to do a little bit of a political hit. 'Let's delay it just a little bit.' Did you notice that?"
He also suggested that the results of the 2020 presidential election will determine "whether we end the pandemic"that has killed more than 200,000 Americans over the last several months.
