Biden has expressed concerns that the vaccine approval process could be politicized, while Trump and his allies counter that such comments from Biden and other Democrats are turning off the public to a potentially lifesaving vaccine when it's released.

He said "brilliant" doctors and scientists of the USA have been working around the clock to produce a COVID-19 vaccine and informed that three vaccines are in the final stage of clinical trials.

The president said there should be enough vaccines for every American by April.

Trump said that the USA would begin distributing vaccines within 24 hours of FDA approval of a vaccine, which he has suggested could happen as soon as the end of October.

He has previously said a vaccine could be approved in October, an ambitious timeline that some experts have said is unlikely to be met.

The companies working to develop coronavirus vaccines have already started manufacturing doses, even while they are still testing the vaccines to ensure they are safe and to see whether they protect people from infection. But the clinical trial of that vaccine is on hold in the United States as a committee investigates a possible adverse event in a British trial, potentially delaying the collection of data that the Food and Drug Administration would require before greenlighting the vaccine.

"I think that's going to be an issue for all of us".

"I think he made a mistake with that statement", Trump said Wednesday. "It's not a forced vaccination, of course", said Dr. Scott Atlas, member of the White House coronavirus task force, asked by Trump to offer specifics.

"First of all, we don't even know if any of the three Operation Warp Speed vaccines in clinical trials even work or if they are safe", he added. In the first phase, a small group of people is given the vaccine, followed by hundreds of people for the second phase and thousands for the third phase.

He said he agreed with Dr Robert Redfield's assessment that a vaccine will be widely available some time between April and September, but that he also thought it could be much earlier than that. I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump.
