So if this company is the one that puts out the vaccine before election day, how much money gets kicked up to Trump?

He can't have an employee getting rich without "wetting his beak"  you know

Moderna? If they have "the one" that stock is going to go up somewhere near 1,000% maybe in a single trading session. The way things are right now, everyone will want a piece of it.

You're talking about tens of billions of dollars.

Trump would actually be a Billionaire with his cut.

The lack of sympathy around here for corrupt millionaires is appalling.

So ... $100k a dose and you can get it half-price if you fill out this ballot voting for Donald Trump.

"I have a personal compass in ethics and people who know me personally know that,"

Is that a good thing?

Slaoui agreed to sell stock worth $12 million and resign from the board of Moderna, the developer of a leading potential vaccine. But Slaoui insisted on keeping his roughly $10 million stake in his former company, GlaxoSmithKline, another contender in the Operation Warp Speed vaccine race. "I won't leave those shares because that's my retirement," he has said.


Yeah, selling them does NOT mean you lose your retirement. You are welcome to reinvest them in anything else. Unless you anticipate that THIS stock, directly related to your government "contracting" efforts will increase in value the most.  In that case, insider trade away!

We need a return to the Obama years, when only poor/broke people were put in influential positions.
