Pres Trump on CDC Dir Redfield saying COVID-19 vaccine will not be widely available for 6-9 months

“No, I think he made a mistake when he said that. That's just incorrect could be announced in October or a little after October."
Pushed later by @kaitlancollins, Pres Trump says he didn't tell Redfield he made a mistake on vaccine timeline but...

"I got the impression he didn't realize he said what he might have said...I didn't see what he said but if that's what he said, he made a mistake."

NEW @ABC Ipsos poll finds the RNC did not improve Pres Trump's favorability, even among his own base

- 31% of Americans have a favorable view of the president
-Joe Biden's favorability is 46%. solidifying his improvement post DNC

@kendallkarson has more:…
“Much like the Dem convention, nearly 3 in 4 Americans (72%) said they watched either very little or none of the GOP's marquee event on TV or online this past week. Only 28% said they watched at least some of it, on par with Dems garnering 30% for their virtual gathering.”
“The president sought to frame his response to the virus...His speech, however, appears to have done little to shift the consistent disapproval on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.”

-63% of Americans disapprove of Trump's oversight of the public health crisis
