The United States President Donald Trump during one of his rallies in Arizona on Wednesday said that if his rival Joe Biden wins the election he will destroy the country with lockdowns. Trump slammed his opponent by saying that voting for Joe Biden would mean "no school, no graduation, no Christmas, and no 4th of July". However, Trump's own CDC chief Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said that even if a vaccine is available by the end of this year, it would take another year or so to reach normality.
