The president emphasized the importance and safety of the American people, while denying the timing of the vaccine had anything to do with the election.
President Trump said the operation continues to remain on track with no major setbacks and will possibly provide the U.S. with an exciting update in the following weeks.
“Under ‘Operation Warp Speed,’ we remain on track to produce a safe and effective vaccine in that record time that we talked about…this would have been years later,” he stated. “It will be delivered before, in my opinion, before the end of the year, but it really might even be delivered before the end of October.”
President Trump also noted that Pfizer will be announcing it’s vaccine trial results in the coming weeks.
