WATCH: Trump says he has final vaccine approval, not FDA

President Donald Trump says he will have the final say on the approval of a coronavirus vaccine, not the Federal Drug Administration.

Watch Trump’s remarks in the player above.

Trump’s comments came Wednesday during a briefing at the White House and on the same day Johnson and Johnson announced its vaccine trial is entering Phase three.

Several vaccines are in the final stage of testing in the U.S.and government scientists should know by the end of this year — November or December — whether they are safe and effective.

The president was also asked if he would commit to a peaceful transition if he lost the election, but he would not answer.
