I saw this today on Yahoo! News – From a Shot in the Arm to a Shot in the Foot — Biden’s Vaccine Blunder Yahoo! News Saturday May 8, 2021: https://www.yahoo.com/news/shot-arm-shot-foot-biden-225252071.html. It’s based on several articles. Slightly longer article although it tends to revert back to Yahoo!

I don’t see the United States backing President Biden’s proposal. I may be wrong, but I also see strong pushback from countries who disagree with President Biden’s proposal. That’s not including the pharmaceutical lobby who I believe will disagree with the proposal.
