Asked by a reporter on Sunday if he would take a vaccine if the Trump administration offered a successful one ahead of the presidential election, Biden responded, “I would want to see what the scientists said. I want full transparency on the vaccine.”

“One of the problems is the way he is playing with politics. He’s said so many things that aren’t true,” he continued as he took aim at the president.

He added:

“If I could get a vaccine tomorrow, I’d do it. If it cost me the election, I’d do it. We need a vaccine. We need it now.”
