President Trump’s congressional allies and White House aides backed his rebuke of CDC Director Robert Redfield on Thursday, insisting they trusted the president over the nation’s top public health official on matters of face masks and vaccine development  https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/17/trump-allies-cdc-chief-attacks-417046 

“If I just take the words of the CDC and the president, the president is right,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said at a news conference, pledging that the U.S. would “have a safe and effective vaccine this year"  https://politi.co/3c6WRJv 

The shows of GOP support for Trump came after he contradicted Redfield’s testimony before a Senate committee on Wednesday, when the virologist told lawmakers mask-wearing could be more effective than an eventual vaccine in containing the spread of #Covid  https://politi.co/3c6WRJv 

Redfield also predicted that while a vaccine could become available between November and December, it would likely not be “generally available to the American public” until the late second quarter or third quarter of next year  https://politi.co/3c6WRJv
