I think @WhiteHouse is selling this wrong. Instead of saying "These vaccines going to Mexico aren't taken away from Americans" they should say "We're taking half of the vaccines away from Wyoming and sending them to Mexico since people in Wyoming are leaving them on the shelves."

Apparently some Americans aren't making vaccination appointments despite being eligible. Will they be jealous if and when we start publicly sending spare vaccines to Mexico, Brazil, India, etc.? "I didn't want this dose but I definitely don't want those _foreigners_ to have it!"

Too late, we already are sending vaccines to Mexico and Canada. We're just calling it a loan, no doubt in the "can I borrow a Kleenex?" manner.
