Donald Trump has made more accusations following his election campaign defeat to Joe Biden last week.
This time the current president isn’t claiming fraud or illegal voting, but he’s firing shots at Pfizer for releasing their Coronavirus vaccine clinical trial studies after the election.
Pfizer announced on Monday that their COVID-19 vaccine is 90% effective in preventing the disease, which is a huge breakthrough.
But Trump says they didn’t publish the results because they didn’t want him taking praise for it ahead of the election.
The @US_FDA and the Democrats didn’t want to have me get a Vaccine WIN, prior to the election, so instead it came out five days later – As I’ve said all along!

And his son backed up those claims.
The timing of this is pretty amazing. Nothing nefarious about the timing of this at all right? 🙄 https://t.co/nS5rkywKXT

A Pfizer spokesperson told Business Insider that the timing “did not have to do with the election.”
