President Trump joined Peter Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade this morning on “Fox & Friends” to share some positive news.
During his interview, Trump revealed a vaccine to combat coronavirus could be approved within a “matter of weeks”.
While most experts think a vaccine wouldn’t be widely available until mid-2021, Trump is more optimistic.
Trump said, “I’m not doing it for political reasons, I want the vaccine fast”.
Under “Operation Warp Speed”, the federal government is aiming to have 300 million doses of a safe vaccine by January.
Because of the initiative, Trump said normally “you wouldn’t have a vaccine for years,” but he is “speeding up the process with the FDA” to have a vaccine “in a matter of weeks”.
Trump also said, if it was the “Biden administration, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for years.”
As reported earlier, an October surprise could be coming:
A new report suggests a coronavirus vaccine might receive approval before the trials are over raising the possibility of approval before the election.
Stephen Hahn, the head of the US Food and Drug Administration said he is willing to bypass the normal approval process to authorize a coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is possible.
While Hahn said it will be up to the vaccine manufacturers to apply for approval before the end “Phase 3” trials which include widespread human testing, he will authorize approval if it’s “appropriate”.
Approval in October doesn’t mean anyone will receive a vaccine before November, but it has other implications. [CLICK TO CONTINUE READING]
