Top Dem Senator Dick Durbin Admits Warp Speed Vaccine Project ‘A Dramatic Success,’ Congratulates Trump

On Thursday, hell froze over, pigs flew, and up became down when Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin said that despite being a “frequent critic” of President Trump, “Operation Warp Speed” appeared to be “a dramatic success.”

“The Warp Speed project appears to be a dramatic success and I pray that it will be,” Durbin said on the Senate floor.

Democrat Dick Durbin to Team Trump: ‘I Want To Give Them Credit’

“Although I’ve been a frequent critic of this administration, I want to give them credit for organizing this effectively, and delivering a vaccine in a timely way — almost amazing timely way — in this pandemic that we face,” Durbin said.

The Democrat added, “I thank all who were involved in it, especially the scientists and researchers, who didn’t give up until they found these vaccines.” 

Durbin’s Comments On COVID Relief

President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed plan was intended to speed up production of a coronavirus vaccine, to be completed within 12 to 18 months.

Now, Americans will begin receiving multiple vaccines inside of a year.

In late November, Pfizer announced that its vaccine would be available to about 40 million by the end of 2020.

In addition to Pfizer, according to Moncef Slaoui, chief scientific advisor for Operation Warp Speed, 20 million Moderna vaccines are expected to be distributed by the end of this month,

In another non-partisan moment this month, Durbin appeared to say that the Democrats dragged their heels on approving a COVID-19 relief plan “because an election was coming.”

Kudos To Dem Durbin For Caring More About Ending The Pandemic Than Hating Trump

Good for Democrat Dick Durbin for giving credit where it is due.

Washington leaders should care more about getting past the pandemic than which party delivers relief, or who gets the credit.

President Trump is delivering, which should be appreciated by everyone – but likely won’t.

It will be interesting to see the reaction of Durbin’s Democrat colleagues to his kind words for the President. 

Will he become persona non grata? Or will other Democrats dig deep and find the courage to congratulate Trump on an historic scientific achievement of global significance?

  • And soon, the leftist school history textbooks will shift the credit for the vaccine from Trump to Biden....just like what the Dominion voting machines did with the votes last Nov. 3.

  • Hats off to Senator Durbin. Given the evil being perpetrated by the vast majority of Democrats on Americans, it took guts supporting and crediting POTUS Trump's for this stellar accomplishment.

  • It is a shame he wasn't able to say the name of the President while making this statement. It is a small thing, but when they want to condemn the President they have no problem spitting his name out, but when it is something positive it is the generic "this administration". To paraphrase some of the BLM protestors "SAY HIS NAME!"

  • All the credit for the "Warp Speed" program goes to Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States and the best president this country has had in decades. There is no way in ħęļļ Biden will be able to say that it was because he "mandated the wearing of masks" that brought COVID-19 to an end. THAT WAS ALL DONE BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WHILE DEMENTIA JOE WAS LOCKED UP IN HIS BASEMENT!

  • I think Dick Cabeza Durbin, is in conflict with the DNC, something I never thought I would see...maybe he found a couple of his marbles in time for Christmas....

  • I would like to see president Trump get all the credit he deserves, particularly from democrats and the MSM. His list of accomplishments beneficial to American citizens is enormous, and the benefits to others around the world is without president. Yet the evil that has hampered his efforts still remains. Imagine had not the evil resistance been involved, what a wonderful world it would be today. All praise and glory to farther God almighty, Amen. God bless president Trump.
