On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta stated that President Donald Trump “was all but giving away his own October surprise,” by suggesting that a coronavirus vaccine might be ready before Election Day.
Acosta said that Trump “hinted, once again, that a vaccine could be available before Election Day, even though his own administration health experts have said repeatedly, don’t bet on it.”
He added, “During a Labor Day news conference that sounded more like a rally from the White House grounds, President Trump was all but giving away his own October surprise, suggesting there will be a coronavirus vaccine ready by Election Day.”
Acosta then played a clip of Trump saying there “maybe” a vaccine before Election Day.
