Former Bill Clinton adviser and "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos asked Cuomo about his thoughts regarding the news that Pfizer's vaccine is more effective than previously hoped and could soon be ready for distribution. Cuomo responded, "The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we'll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it's about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan."
Cuomo went on to claim that the specific problem with the Trump administration's vaccine plan is that the "Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it's flawed. I believe it learns nothing from the past. They're basically going to have the private providers do it and that's going to leave out all sorts of communities that were left out the first time when Covid ravaged them."
Stephanopoulos asked Cuomo what the Biden administration could do differently from a Trump administration, and rather than respond, Cuomo first falsely claimed that "the Trump administration denied COVID." Cuomo did not elaborate on how the Trump administration denied COVID, because there is no statement on record from Trump or anyone in his administration that COVID was not real
