US President Donald Trump shortly spoke to the press in Washington DC on Monday minutes before departing to North Carolina, where the leader was expected to visit the factory working on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Trump praised the White House's COVID research team saying the meeting earlier in the day «went really well, and we are doing well on vaccines, we are doing well on therapeutics.»
The president sounded optimistic, stating, «stock markets are doing very well, the economy is doing very well,» and commented on his plan to lower the drug prices in the US.
«Drug prices will be coming down very, very substantially. No other president has been allowed to do that. No other president has been able to do that,» Trump said before heading to the helicopter.
