Until recently, there was a lot of guesswork as to whether US President Donald Trump would even personally attend the virtual G20 summit this weekend. Now a senior government official is dispelling doubts. It is expected that Trump will be involved in G20 events on both Saturday and Sunday from the White House, the person who wishes to remain anonymous told Reuters. For Trump, the summit should be the last opportunity to present itself on a large international stage.
EU hopes for a strong cooperation with Biden
Before the G20 summit on the weekend, the EU expressed the hope of closer cooperation with the future US administration under Joe Biden. Biden had “already committed to strengthening multilateral cooperation,” said EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Friday. She is hoping for “new momentum” from Biden in the joint fight against the corona pandemic and the climate crisis. The G20 meeting organized by Saudi Arabia will also focus on these issues.
Von der Leyen saw a need to catch up in the joint cooperation on health security — not only with regard to the current Corona crisis. “So far, the US has not wanted to get involved in this issue,” she said. “I very much hope that this will change under the newly elected president.”
Trump accuses pharmaceutical companies of deliberate delay in vaccines
Donald Trump has accused the pharmaceutical company Pfizer of deliberately delaying the publication of data on its future corona vaccine in order to harm it in the election. “Pfizer and others have even decided not to test the results of their vaccines, in other words, don’t put a vaccine out until right after the election,” said Trump. “They waited and waited and waited.”
Originally, the pharmaceutical companies wanted to present their data in October, said Trump. “But they decided to postpone it.” The reason are his plans to lower drug costs, said Trump. He had thus turned the pharmaceutical industry against him. If the pharmaceutical companies had announced their good results on the effectiveness of their vaccine candidates before the presidential election on November 3, it would have “probably had an impact” on the election, Trump said. At the same time he claimed again that in reality he had won the election anyway.
Trump said the pharmaceutical lobby had already spent “millions of dollars” on advertising against him during the election campaign. “We had Big Pharma against us.” He spoke of “corrupt games”.
