Trump Contradicts CDC Director Robert Redfield on COVID-19 Vaccine Timeline and Wearing Safety Masks

President Donald Trump claimed that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield “made a mistake” when he told a Senate committee earlier in the day that a COVID-19 vaccine would likely not be available until the middle of 2021 (MORE VIDEO BELOW):

No, I think he made a mistake when he said that. It’s just incorrect information. I believe he was confused.

Trump has repeatedly claimed without any evidence that, that a vaccine will be available in weeks, possibly ahead of the Election Day on Nov. 3.

Redfield also said that safety masks — which Trump has mocked — are “more guaranteed” to protect against the COVID-19 than a vaccine.

However, Trump said that masks are not more effective than a non-existent vaccine.
