In an interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’ President Trump predicted that a coronavirus vaccine could be approved “in a matter of weeks.”
The President assured viewers that the push for a vaccine is about saving lives and returning the country to some semblance of normalcy.
“I’m not doing it for political reasons, I want the vaccine fast,” Trump said.
“You wouldn’t have a vaccine for years … I (sped) up the process with the FDA,” he continued. “We’re going to have a vaccine in a matter of weeks, it could be four weeks it could be eight weeks … we have a lot of great companies.”
A White House ‘fact sheet’ last month revealed that the administration was “using every available resource to deliver a safe and effective vaccine to the American people.”
The effort is known as ‘Operation Warp Speed.’
“We’ve shaved years off of the time that it takes to develop a vaccine and we’ve done it while maintaining the FDA gold standard for safety,” Trump boasted at the time.
Now, it seems, the COVID vaccine could be right around the corner.
President Trump says on Fox News that there will be a coronavirus vaccine in a matter of “weeks” and that the government will start delivering it “immediately.”

Biden Goes Anti-Vaxxer
As President Trump pushes for a COVID vaccine to help save lives, Democrat nominee Joe Biden has gone full anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist.
In an interview this past summer, Biden questioned whether any coronavirus vaccine put forth by the administration would be “safe” or even “real.”
“How are you going to distribute the vaccine when it arrives, when it arrives, when it’s there?” Biden wondered. “And the question of whether it’s real, when it’s there, that requires enormous transparency.”
“You got to make all of it available to other experts across the nation, so they can look and see,” he added. “So there’s consensus [that] this is a safe vaccine.
WATCH: Joe Biden suggests the coronavirus vaccine won’t be “real” and may not be “safe,” contradicting public health experts.

He condescendingly asked who would be the first to sign up to “take the shot?”
Joe Biden isn’t following the science.
Despite what Dr. Fauci and other public health experts say about the coronavirus vaccine, Biden and Harris are spreading fear and conspiracy theories because they care more about politics than saving lives. pic.twitter.com/NZKUkqeNdM

Meanwhile, running mate Kamala Harris has been flirting with anti-vax rhetoric as well, refusing to say whether or not she’d be willing to take the vaccine.
Poll Shows Dems Are Going to Cause More Deaths
An absolutely frightening poll has come out showing that Democrat anti-vaxxer rhetoric is going to cause some of their followers and voters to skip the vaccine and put their lives in danger.
The new Morning Consult poll shows that only 51 percent of Americans are now willing to take a coronavirus vaccine, a 21-point drop from April when 72 percent said they would get the vaccine.
A new poll confirms the dangers of Biden and Harris’ insane rhetoric undermining confidence in the vaccine.

Another poll shows Americans buying into the Biden-Harris rhetoric, believing that any vaccine would be rushed due to ‘political pressure.’
Where would they get that idea?
Oh, that’s right. From Biden …
Joe Biden is trying to undermine confidence in the coronavirus vaccine for political purposes.

Multiple health officials like Dr. Fauci have repeatedly confirmed that there is no political pressure involved in the development of a COVID vaccine.

Biden and Harris, on the other hand, are clearly refusing to say they will take the vaccine for political reasons – even if it costs people their lives by failing to set an example.
