During a speech on police reform, President Donald Trump let loose with a whopper that quickly started earning scorn on social media and outrage from activists. He claimed that scientists working on a vaccine for coronavirus were the same people who created “an AIDS vaccine” that doesn’t exist.

“Before the end of the year, I predict we will have a very successful vaccine, therapeutic, and cure. We’re making tremendous progress. I deal with these incredible scientists, doctors very very closely. I have great respect for their minds,” Trump said during the briefing.

“And they have come up with things, and they’ve come up with many other cures and therapeutics over the years. These are the best, the smartest, the most brilliant anywhere. And they’ve come up with the AIDS vaccine.”
