President Donald Trump said Friday that he’s hopeful to have a coronavirus vaccine on the market by the end of the year or shortly thereafter.

The president was updating his Operation Warp Speed project during remarks in the Rose Garden Friday.

Trump said the project’s objective is to “finish developing and then to manufacture and distribute a proven coronavirus vaccine as fast as possible,” stressing that he would like to see it happen before the end of the year.

“We think we’re going to have some very good results coming out very quickly,” he said.

Moncep Slaoui, a former pharmaceutical executive who Trump has tapped to serve as the administration’s virus czar, said that early trial data suggests that a few hundred million doses of vaccine will be delivered by late 2020.

Trump also reiterated that he wants to see states move forward with reopening their economies.

“Vaccine or no vaccine, we are back,” Trump said.
