Trump says Joe Biden is ‘recklessly endangering lives’ by doubting vaccine

President Trump on Wednesday slammed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for saying he distrusts potential COVID-19 vaccines.

“I’m calling on Biden to stop promoting his anti-vaccine theories because all they’re doing is hurting the importance of what we’re doing,” Trump said at a White House press briefing.

“They’re recklessly endangering lives. You can’t do that… and that’s only because they know we have it, or we will soon have it.”

Biden said at a Wednesday press conference he doubts the efficacy of any vaccine if there isn’t robust independent scientific oversight of the approval process.

Biden also called for “an effective distribution plan” for a COVID-19 vaccine at a Wednesday press conference before admitting he didn’t study a plan put out Wednesday by the Trump administration.

“We’ll be able to distribute at least 100 million vaccine doses by the end of 2020 and a large number much sooner than that,” Trump said at the briefing.
