Aug 22 Trump tweeted that members of “the deep state” at the regulatory agency are making it hard for drug companies to “get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics” and “obviously” want to delay progress until after Nov. 3, Election Day.
The president tagged FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn in his message.
The “deep state” is a term used by Trump to describe employees of government agencies that he believes are manipulating policy to work against his interests.
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. Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer until after November 3rd. Must focus on speed, and saving lives! @SteveFDA

Trump also recycled criticism of the FDA’s decision in June to revoke an emergency use authorization of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID-19.
“Many doctors and studies disagree with this!” Trump tweeted.
[Right] LETTER SENT TO FDA FROM THE SENATE
We quote a exert:
“You stated that the FDA does not regulate the practice of medicine and that prescribing off-label medicines like HCQ and CQ to treat COVID-19 is based on an individual assessment for patient”
HOWEVER we have heard from Licensed Physicians that have had a far different experience with the FDA’s approach.
FDA Bureaucrats Running Interference? (theres no scientific reason to do what they’ve been doing)
Separately, the Department of Health and Human Services announced this week that more individual labs could develop their own tests for COVID-19 and other diseases after a policy shift no longer requiring them to get FDA review before use.
