Hugh Hewitt: The Triumph of Operation Warp Speed

Operation Warp Speed—the Trump Administration’s aggressive program pushing for a vaccine for COVID-19—is on the cusp of success.

We know the vaccines work—and without serious side effects.

Operation Warp Speed is a triumph of science and logistics without parallel. It may be the greatest achievement of the Trump administration.

Trump has brought the Middle East closer to peace. A President Biden may pull it back into chaos.
