The mockery came hard and fast:

According to Trinidad and Tobago's National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds, the vials will be given to the National Security Ministry. 

"This has nothing to do with any large donation that we expect is being considered by the United States Government," he told the Trinidad Daily Express. "This is just a small number for the Ministry of National Security as a gift which we are happy to accept."

Ah - so the Biden admin was congratulating itself over a gift that's meant for bureaucrats!

The island nation has recorded 29,000 cases of COVID-19 and 670 deaths thus far, after a steep rise in May.
