White House aide says Trump's vaccine-by-Election Day promise was 'arbitrary'

Source: Politico

A top White House adviser on Friday called President Donald Trump’s long-shot pledge to have a coronavirus vaccine by Nov. 3 “kind of an arbitrary deadline,” as Election Day prepares to come and go with no shot having even applied for approval yet.

“We’ve got nearly half a dozen vaccines that are in Phase Three clinical trials, which is record time to get it there for a novel virus like we’re dealing with,” White House strategic communications director Alyssa Farah told reporters. “We’re still highly confident we’ll have one by the end of the year and be prepared to deploy it to a hundred million Americans.”

“His goal has never — Election Day is kind of an arbitrary deadline,” she added.

The acknowledgment comes as Trump has softened his promise — which always appeared improbable and politically motivated — on the campaign trail in recent weeks.

5. She's Lying, Too

She's lying about him lying.
It was not arbitrary, at all. It was a political machination. She's lying about it being a deadline.

4. tRump is either completely or not at all arbitrary, depending on not-so-obvious point of view


tRump says whatever he thinks his audience wants to hear.

Now that is arbitrary because it is untruthful.

But it is also not arbitrary in the sense that it is predetermined by tRump's assessment of his audience.

11. "Arbitrary": from "arse", "bit" and "rear"

A bit of something the arse pulled out of his rear-end.
