President Donald Trump said during a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Thursday night that three potential coronavirus vaccines are in the final stage of clinical trials and a safe and effective vaccine will be out before the end of the year. (Sept. 18)
DONALD TRUMP: It shouldn't have been one person that died. It should have been stopped in China. They stopped it for their country, but it came out to us, to Europe, to the rest of the world, 188 countries. We will deliver a safe and effective vaccine before the end of the year, and it could be very, very soon. You've been seeing what's going on. It could be very, very soon.
But we have three vaccines right now. They're in the final stage, clinical trials. We worked it for the FDA, where they approved it fast. They went very fast, very quick, at levels that nobody else could have ever achieved, no other administration, certainly the last one, because the last order was grossly incompetent. In fact, that's why I'm here, because if it was good, I wouldn't have run.
