Coronavirus Australia Updates: NSW Health attempting to identify visitors to inner-Sydney restaurant

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Saturday slammed President Donald Trump for his baseless suggestion that the Food and Drug Administration is delaying vaccine development until after the election.

Trump tweeted the unfounded claim early Saturday, saying, “The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics.”

Pelosi called the statement “very dangerous … even for him.”

“It went beyond the pale in terms of how he would jeopardize the health and well-being of the American people, accuse the FDA of politics, when he is the one who has tried to inject himself in the scientific decisions of the administration,” Pelosi said.
