  • Trump says that the coronavirus vaccine will be ready by October and attacks Biden and Harris.
  • The president used a Labor Day press conference to attack his Democratic opponents for the time of a possible coronavirus vaccine.
  • The back and forth about the vaccine underscored the huge impact it could have on the November election.

President Trump unloaded at the Labor Day press conference.

He took the opportunity to continue rejecting the accusations that suggest that the president discredited members of the military and to attack their Democratic opponents Biden and Harris for the time of a possible coronavirus vaccine.

Trump’s lecture yesterday, from the North Portico of the White House, echoed many of the same issues he has raised in the election campaign.

As usual, he criticized Democratic candidate Joe Biden and defended his handling of the US economy and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even Trump, at one point, demanded that Democrats “immediately apologize for the reckless anti-vaccine rhetoric that they are talking about at this time.”

This follows Senator Kamala Harris’ comments that she would never trust a Trump announcement about a vaccine without a “credible” source to corroborate her statements.

“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump and that he would have to be a credible source of information that speaks to the efficacy and reliability of whatever he is talking about,” Harris told CNN’s State of the Union. “I won’t take your word for it.”

So much talk about the vaccine shows that, in addition to the importance to the health of all Americans, the COVID-19 vaccine is a vital aspect of the November elections.

Trump acknowledges he wants a vaccine quickly, has said his motivation is not political, and went on to suggest that one could be ready by October.

Trump and Biden accuse each other of politicizing future COVID-19 vaccine

US President Donald Trump on Monday accused his rivals in the November elections, former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, of undermining public confidence in the future COVID vaccine. 19 for political reasons.

That is exactly the same as what Biden accuses him, who has recently warned that Trump is “playing politics” and pushing to have a vaccine available before the November 3 elections, which may “undermine public confidence” in the effectiveness of that preparation.

During a press conference at the White House, Trump insisted that the vaccine will be available in “record time”, and lashed out at Harris for having assured that he would not “trust” the president’s promises about the safety of a vaccine if he did not They are accompanied by guarantees from scientists.

Trump even insulted the Democratic presidential candidate, stating: “Biden is a stupid person, you know that.”

The president reacted in this way to Harris’ statements during an interview broadcast this Saturday by CNN, in which the Democratic candidate for the Vice Presidency assured that she would not rely only on “the word” of Trump to trust a vaccine against the coronavirus if the White House announces it soon.

“I would not trust Donald Trump. It would have to be a credible source of information that speaks about the effectiveness and reliability of whatever he is talking about, ”said the Democratic senator.

Harris explained that he fears that Trump will “muzzle, suppress or sideline” public health experts “because he faces an election in less than 60 days, and he is trying to hold on to whatever it takes to pretend he has led in this subject, when it is not like that ”.

Trump vaccinates coronavirus October: Biden says “I would vaccinate even if it cost me the election”

Biden, visiting Pennsylvania on Monday, responded to journalists’ question about whether he would get a COVID-19 vaccine if Trump presented one before the election.

“Only if (the process) were completely transparent, only if we knew everything (the process) that the vaccine had to go through” until its approval, the former vice president replied.

However, Biden said that after “seeing what the scientists say” about that vaccine, he would welcome it even if its arrival gives a boost to the Trump campaign.

“If I could get the vaccine tomorrow, I would. Even if it cost me the election, I would. We need a vaccine and we need it now, ”the Democratic candidate concluded.

Some public health experts have expressed concern that the White House is pushing to skip stages in the vaccine approval process and announce it before the November elections, thus enhancing Trump’s reelection options.

Those rumors could reinforce American skepticism about the safety of a potential vaccine at the time it is announced, something that also worries scientists.

Two-thirds of American voters say they will not try to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available, and one in four say they never want it, according to a poll published last Friday by USA Today.
