President Donald Trump claimed during a Thursday interview that a coronavirus vaccine may be ready for the American public “right around” the November 3 election.

“I’m rushing it. I am. I’m pushing everybody,” Trump told radio host Geraldo Rivera. “If you had another president, other than me, you wouldn’t be talking vaccines for two years.”

But Trump’s top advisers haven’t predicted such a speedy rollout of a potential vaccine.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said recently that there may be a vaccine by the end of 2020, with tens of millions of doses ready to distribute to Americans early next year.

President Donald Trump claimed during a Thursday interview that a coronavirus vaccine may be ready for the American public “right around” the November 3 election.

When asked on Geraldo Rivera’s radio show whether a vaccine could be ready before the election, Trump replied, “I think in some cases, yes possible before, but right around that time.”

“I’m rushing it. I am. I’m pushing everybody,” he said. “If you had another president, other than me, you wouldn’t be talking vaccines for two years.”

Earlier this week, Trump said a vaccine might be ready “far in advance of the end of the year.”
