Pfizer on Monday said its experimental coronavirus vaccine had succeeded in the final stage of clinical trials: The shot was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19, the company said, a milestone in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Pfizer is a private business, and not a government organization, but that didn’t stop Trump from his baseless attack, speculating on Twitter that Democrats and even the US Food and Drug Administration “didn’t want to have me get a Vaccine WIN, prior to the election.”

Twitter users quickly fired back:
