Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said President Donald Trump's Operation Warp Speed program is "one of the greatest American achievements of the 21st century."

Rubio's comments came in a Wednesday tweet. He wrote: "Years from now #OperationWarpSpeed will be considered one of the greatest American achievements of the 21st century. Those of us not suffering from a case of severe Anti-Trump derangement are ready to begin recognizing that now."

Operation Warp Speed was designed to join private pharmaceutical companies with government agencies and the military in trying to cut the development time for a coronavirus vaccine by as long as eight months.

Rubio's tweet came as Pfizer said that interim results from an ongoing study suggest its vaccine is 95% effective. The company is preparing to formally ask U.S. regulators to allow emergency use of the vaccine.

Moderna, Inc. has announced that its experimental vaccine appears to be 94.5% effective.
