Trump claimed today that "they" are planning to "rip down Mount Rushmore"! (Does Trump understand that Mount Rushmore is solid rock and not simply a big curtain?)
The CDC Director announced the earliest a vaccine would be available is the second or third quarter of 2021. Trump said a vaccine was more or less right around the corner, adding that Americans should trust him over the head of the CDC "because of the great job we've done".
Trump also insisted that if you overlook all of the deaths in the "blue states" (which don't really count), then the US picture looks much rosier, since the country would be "at a level I don't think anybody in the world would be at".

Olivia Troye worked as homeland security, counterterrorism, and coronavirus adviser to Vice President Mike Pence for two years. She will be voting for Joe Biden because of Donald Trump's "flat out disregard for human life".
Troye also reported that during a coronavirus task force meeting, Trump said: "Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing. I don't like shaking hands with people. I don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people [referring to his supporters]."
