THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. This is a very big day for our country. It’s affirmation of all the work we’ve been doing, really, for three and a half years. This isn’t just over the last few months; this is for three and a half years. And it’s a great thing. We were very strong. We had the greatest economy in the history of our country. We had the greatest economy in the history of the world. And that strength let us get through this horrible pandemic, largely through. I think we’re doing really well.
Vaccines — by the way, I had a meeting yesterday on vaccines. We’re doing incredibly well with that. I think you’re going to have some very positive surprises. And therapeutics, likewise, we’re doing extremely well. Cures we’re doing well. I think those two words really blend in with each other.
But tremendous progress is being made on vaccines. In fact, we have ready to go, in terms of transportation and logistics — we have over 2 million ready to go, if it checks out for safety. And it’s also — the nice part is we have four companies — I guess you could even say seven or eight companies — that are doing some similar and some very different on the vaccine front, and some similar and some somewhat different on the therapeutic front.
