Reuters later stealth-edited its story to incorporate official statements denying the original newspaper report. But a New York Times journalist had already shared the Reuters article before it was altered. An MSNBC producer also shared the story.
But the story quickly fell apart. CureVac issued a statement on Twitter denying that it received an offer from the U.S. government. “CureVac rejects all allegations from press,” the firm said.

Oh yeah. I’m sure all of this is on behalf of the American people.
Trump could cure cancer and you would be unhappy.
Depends on how he did it I guess. If he bought the cure so his family could profit off the sale of it while keeping it from other countries you’re damn right I’d have a problem with it.

i put this in conspiracy forum for what at least my personal theory on this was but i will also post sources to the topic at question
ok semi tinfoil but bear with me here on this and it will be long and i suck at formatting:
a story from germany just broke that trump tried to buy the cure some german bio-tech firm allegely has devloped to fight/cure the corona virus and he wanted to patent . the state department knew nothing about this so it was presumed he wanted to use his own money to do this which would have bluntly guaranteed republicans the 2020 election and possibly the house . if he had pulled this off i would have seen him announcing it by surprise at one of his press conferences and then in uncharacteristically for a billionaire (but smart as all hell) offered the cure to every American for free (ideally) or at least at COST and with the amount of people freaking out about this virus no way he looses 2020 (im still confident not being a debbie downer on his odds btw) . he then could have use ownership of said patent in 3 ways .
1 use it as leverage against hostile nations (read NK and iran) who are having problems with the virus,like say get iran to give up on nuclear power in exchange for it (an election year win) same for NK but kim cares less about his people then them.
2 he could get insanely wealthy as to my knowledge the executive and parts of the legislative branch are immune from insider trading laws so even giving it away for free/cost to Americans he would come out ahead just on stock values. and would not have to go to martin shekle levels of shenanigans to do it
3 it would cause the DOW to surge thus him saving the us economy when it looks like we were heading into a recession again so all huge wins against trumps enemies while making him rich as all hell (NYT guardian and many others are covering this now i am unsure what sources are approved her ) its semi tinfoily but does seem in line with trumps art of the deal mentality.
as it would have played to his savior complex and it would be a political coup for him during an election year
promised links www.nytimes.com...
www.theguardian.com...so there is the Guardian link that sums it up ,so this is a factual post but with my own theories about it hence why its posted here vs breaking news
German ministers have reacted angrily following reports US president Donald Trump offered a German medical company “large sums of money” for exclusive rights to a Covid-19 vaccine. “Germany is not for sale,” economy minister Peter Altmaier told broadcaster ARD, reacting to a front page report in Welt am Sonntag newspaper headlined “Trump vs Berlin”. The newspaper reported Trump offered $1bn to Tübingen-based biopharmaceutical company CureVac to secure the vaccine “only for the United States”. The German government was reportedly offering its own financial incentives for the vaccine to stay in the country.

BERLIN (Reuters) - Berlin is trying to stop Washington from persuading a German company seeking a coronavirus vaccine to move its research to the United States, prompting German politicians to insist no country should have a monopoly on any future vaccine.
