Trump’s Vaccine Distribution Plan Is a Moral ‘Affront,’ Cuomo Says
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York criticized President Trump’s coronavirus vaccine distribution plan and said the state would consider taking legal action to pursue a more equitable process.
“The Trump administration’s proposed plan is such an affront. I tell you today, if the Trump administration does not change this plan and does not provide an equitable vaccine process, we will enforce our legal rights. We will bring legal action to protect New Yorkers.” “Who gets the vaccine and who doesn’t get the vaccine is not just a question of morality and principle. It’s a legal question. I’ve tried to work with the Trump administration in arguing morality and principle for four years. You’re better off trying to argue with a rock. But it’s not just about morality. I hope the Trump administration opens their eyes, but I’m dubious. I’m not going to allow New Yorkers to be bullied or to be abused. I’m not going to allow the injustice to continue.” “The truth is, Covid is not the only virus attacking us. We are being attacked by other viruses. Covid weakened our immune system, and when your immune system is weakened, then you get attacked by other viruses. And that’s what happened to America. We’re being attacked by multiple viruses at the same time. And we must fight them all. Because racism is a virus, and sexism is a virus, and discrimination is a virus, and injustice is a virus, and division is a virus, and distrust is a virus, and abuse of power is a virus, and hatred is a virus. And our America is better than this.”
