Operation Warp Speed: President Trump predicts COVID-19 vaccine by end of 2020

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump spoke from the White House Friday about developments in the race to create a coronavirus vaccine and doubled down on his prediction that the U.S. will have a vaccine by the end of the year.

The president detailed the Trump administration project dubbed Operation Warp Speed that will overlap studies of different candidates that are made differently and act differently.

Trump also announced Dr. Moncef Slaoui has been appointed to lead the White House’s initiative.
