Trump to make first on-camera appearance in a week with COVID-19 vaccine update

WASHINGTON — President Trump will deliver an update on the nation’s coronavirus vaccine efforts from the Rose Garden on Friday afternoon — his first on-camera appearance in a week as he continues to contest the presidential election.

The commander-in-chief will speak at 4 p.m. on Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s private-public partnership to accelerate the development and distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine, the White House said.

Trump has not addressed the nation since last Friday when he gave a free-wheeling address in the White House briefing room in which he claimed his opponents were trying to “steal” the election from him.

The president’s re-election campaign is fighting the vote count in several swing states.

World leaders have continued to call President-elect Joe Biden to congratulate him on his victory as advisers to Trump insist that the incumbent will win a second term.
