Donald Trump Speaks Publicly for First Time Since Losing the Election, Won’t Send Vaccine to New York
Donald Trump just spoke in public for the first time since losing the 2020 presidential election and he still is not accepting the results.
The current President of the United States spoke to the press from the Rose Garden at the White House on Friday afternoon (November 13) in Washington, D.C.
Joe Biden was projected as the winner of the election last Saturday and just minutes before Trump‘s speech today, news outlets began reporting the final election results. Biden is finishing the race with 306 electoral votes while Trump has 232, the complete opposite from his race with Hillary Clinton.
Trump spoke about his Operation Warp Speed and said that he would not send the U.S. into a lockdown.
“This administration will not be going to a lockdown,” Trump said. “Hopefully, the — whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration will be, I guess time will tell, but I can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown.”
During the speech, Trump also said he won’t allow the coronavirus vaccine to be sent to New York.
“As soon as April the vaccine will be available to the entire general population with the exception of places like New York State, where, for political reasons, the governor decided to say, and I don’t think it’s good from a political standpoint, but he wants to take his time with the vaccine,” Trump said.
“We won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization to do so, and that pains me to say that. This is a very successful, amazing vaccine at 90% and more, but, so the governor, Governor Cuomo, will have to let us know when he’s ready for it,” Trump said.
Here’s what Trump told one of his friends after losing the election.
