Sen. Kamala Harris said she doesn’t trust President Donald Trump if he would recommend a coronavirus vaccine but quickly added that if a doctor recommends it, she’ll be first in line.
The question was asked as Harris debated Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday.
The moderator asked Harris if Americans should take the vaccine and if she would. Harris says that if doctors “tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it, absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”
During the debate, Vice President Mike Pence explicitly said there will be a vaccine produced in record time. He says, “I just ask you, stop playing politics with people’s lives.”
He says that undermining confidence in a vaccine is unacceptable.
