Ingraham: Trump proves the ‘media-medical cartel’ wrong yet again with Operation Warp Speed success

President Trump proved the “media-medical cartel” wrong yet again with the success of Operation Warp Speed, an initiative once dismissed as nothing more than impractical wishful thinking by the administration, Laura Ingraham said Monday.

“When President Trump in May launched Operation Warp Speed, promising to deliver a vaccine to the American people by the end of the year, remember how the media and medical establishment reacted?” the “Ingraham Angle” host asked viewers.

Ingraham cued up a montage of liberal commentators and “medical experts” who chastised the president for setting an “irresponsible” “reckless,” “impossible,” and “preposterous” goal for the development and approval of a safe and effective vaccine by the close of 2020.

In a letter to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the legislators said failure to extend the exclusions beyond December 31 would hurt small businesses already suffering from stay-at-home orders aimed at containing the spread of the new coronavirus.

They said they recognised that the exclusions were granted in part to give US companies more time to diversify their supply chains out of China. But companies needed more time to complete those efforts given continuing travel restrictions, they said.

“Extending exclusions before they expire will help with pandemic
