Pelosi Shows Ignorance of UK Drug Rules With Claim Boris Johnson Could Approve COVID Vaccine

The Democratic Party House leader claimed that UK PM Boris Johnson - and not the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency - has the power to approve new drugs, and that a US president could overrule the federal Food and Drug Administration.

US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has the power to approve new drugs before they pass clinical trials.

Pelosi's gaffe came in response to a question from Sky News Scotland bureau chief James Matthews.

Matthews, noting that Pelosi has previously criticized Johnson over his implementation of the UK's vote to leave the European Union, asked if she thought that the PM is unfit to lead the UK government after his bout with the coronavirus six months earlier.

"I have no idea, nor do I have of President Trump," Pelosi admitted, before claiming: "Clearly he is on medication. Any of us who is under medication of that seriousness is in an altered state."
