Trump said in a press conference Tuesday held in India that the U.S. was “very close” to a coronavirus vaccine.

But experts—and senators of both parties—say a vaccine wouldn’t be ready for at least another year.

The White House claims Trump was talking about Ebola. As Politico reported, “The White House later said the president was referring to the Ebola vaccine, which the FDA approved two months ago.”

So rather than simply explain Trump made a mistake, the White House would rather publicly admit that the President confused coronavirus with Ebola (and also got the timing of that vaccine wrong).

White House officials aren’t happy with how HHS Secretary Alex Azar is handling this issue, saying they “felt the administration was caught flat-footed by the severity of the outbreak,” says Politico.

Twitter is not having it with Trump’s statements:
