The Trump administration awarded a series of contracts worth $1.3 billion to ApiJect Systems Corp., a Connecticut company, to supply an essential syringe for the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
In a May 2020 statement, ApiJect said it would use the government money to produce 100 million prefilled syringes by the end of 2020 and have the capacity to supply more than 500 million syringes in 2021.
As of late April 2021, zero syringes have been made. None of the 650 jobs promised by the company exist. In fact, the plant in which the syringes would be produced has not even been built. Pretty soon, everyone will be vaccinated and there will be no need for syringes.
Yet another blatant Trump scam.
I wonder how much of that $1,300,000,000 was kicked back to various Trump officials?
