Trump tells campaign supporters coronavirus epidemic ‘ending’

President Trump declared Sunday that the coronavirus crisis is “ending,” even though single-day infection levels have just hit their highest point since the pandemic began.

Trump, speaking at a campaign rally in New Hampshire, said a potential coronavirus vaccine is “going to be delivered fast.” “That will quickly end the pandemic — it’s ending anyway,” Trump said. “We’re rounding the turn, but the vaccine will get it down fast, because we want normal life to resume.”

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden seized on White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’ statement that the Trump administration is “not going to control the pandemic.” “This wasn’t a slip by Meadows,” Biden said. “It was a candid acknowledgment of what President Trump’s strategy has clearly been from the beginning of this crisis: to wave the white flag of defeat.”
