U.S. President Donald Trump said he is hopeful there will be a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year and that the United States is working with other countries to ensure the effort is a global one.
At an event Friday in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said the U.S. government would invest in all the top vaccine candidates and that the list of promising possibilities had been narrowed to 14 and would later be further narrowed.
He said progress was moving at “record speed” and that his administration would work to quickly get a vaccine distributed once it was ready. However, Trump said that even without a vaccine, the U.S. must be prepared to reopen.
"Vaccine or no vaccine, we're back," Trump said. He also said the virus could eventually go away without a vaccine.
"Other things have never had a vaccine and they go away. So I don't want people to think that this is all dependent on vaccine," he said.
Trump said the world was working together on the vaccine initiative without egos. "We have no ego. Whoever gets it, we think it's great. We're going to work with them, they're going to work with us. Likewise, if we get it, we're going to be working with them," he said.
