A coronavirus vaccine is a key part of returning America to normal and making our economy great again, and that’s why President Trump is working hard to deliver a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine for the American people as soon as possible.
Multiple public health experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have been saying for months that Operation Warp Speed is free from political interference and that they would take the vaccine as soon as it is ready, according to a press release from the Trump campaign.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), however, are spreading fear, fueling anti-vax conspiracy theories, and actively trying to undermine the public’s confidence in the vaccine, the Trump campaign warned.
Biden, during a press conference this week, asked reporters: “When we do finally do, God willing, get a vaccine, Who’s gonna take the shot? Who’s gonna take the shot?”
“You going to be the first one to say– ‘Put me, sign me up’, they now say it’s okay? I’m not being facetious,” he claimed. Video Below

During a Saturday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union”, host Dana Bash asked Kamala Harris if she would take the vaccine once it’s approved, but Harris claimed to “not trust Donald Trump”.
“Let’s just say there’s a vaccine that is approved and even distributed before the election. Would you get it?” Bash asked Harris.
“Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us. I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump,” Harris said. “I will not take his word for it.”

Joe Biden isn't following the science.

The Trump campaign said in a Sunday press release:
Biden and Harris are saying this for political reasons, knowing full well their irresponsible rhetoric could lead to more dead Americans. They don’t seem to care that they are contradicting the scientists and top public health officials:
- Dr. Anthony Fauci: “I would not hesitate for a moment to take the vaccine myself and recommend it to my family.”
- U.S. Suregon General Jerome Adams: “When there’s a COVID vaccine available, I and my family will be in line to get it.”
- NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins: “The safety and the effectiveness will be not compromised,” the NIH’s Dr. Collins said.
- FDA Commissioner Dr. Hahn: “We will do our job to assess the safety and the efficacy of a vaccine candidate.”
- Dr. Deborah Birx: “When the American people…see that the vaccine is safe and effective…they will want to have that vaccine.”
“Instead of listening to the experts, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are playing politics with people’s lives. Instead of getting rid of the virus, they’d rather undermine American’s confidence in a vaccine and shut down the economy again just because they hate President Trump. Why would we ever let Biden kill countless American businesses, jobs and our economic future when President Trump’s great American comeback is underway?”
