President Trump has said New York will not immediately receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available due to the government.

Cuomo “will have to let us know when he’s ready for this, because otherwise, we can’t deliver him to a state that won’t give him to his people immediately,” Trump said.

“He doesn’t trust the origin of the vaccine,” added Trump. “These are from the biggest companies in the world, the biggest labs in the world, but he doesn’t trust that it’s this White House, this administration, so we won’t deliver them to New York until we will not be allowed to do so, and it pains me to say so.

Shortly after the president’s remarks, Cuomo denied the allegations by appearing on MSNBC.

“Nothing the president said is true, surprise, surprise,” Cuomo said, saying many American citizens fear Trump is politicizing the vaccination process. “The American people trust the pharmaceutical company more than the president.”

New York Attorney General Letitia James also condemned the president’s behavior, calling it “nothing more than vindictive behavior by a lame president trying to get revenge on those who oppose his policies.” ”

“Once there is a fully developed COVID-19 vaccine, we are confident that a Biden-Harris administration will provide New York City with the appropriate number of doses so that residents of our state can achieve immunity,” said she said in a statement.

James went on to say that the state would take legal action against Trump if necessary.

“If the vaccine release takes place in the twilight of a Trump administration and the president wants to play games with people’s lives, we will sue and we will win,” she said.
