Stock futures climb amid reports Trump plans
US stock futures climbed in overnight trading on Sunday as reports emerged that President Trump plans to circumvent US regulations in order to allow the use of an experimental Covid19 vaccine. The FT, citing three people briefed on the plan, said that the Trump administration wants the vaccine developed in the UK by AstraZeneca and Oxford University put into action before the presidential election in November. Currently, more than 60 of Americans disapprove of the Presidents handling of the pandemic, and the successful introduction of a vaccine might allow Trump to boost his chances. Elsewhere over the weekend, the US Food and Drug Administration authorised the use of convalescent plasma taken from recovered Covid19 patients to treat serious cases.
