Trump hopes at some point Covid-19 will "sort of just disappear"

Trump has also seemingly done a u-turn on the subject of masks.

Donald Trump has said that he hopes at some point that Covid-19 will "sort of just disappear".

In a recent interview with Fox Business, Trump spoke about how he believed that America was getting back on track, with retail numbers increasing.

He said: "I think we're gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point it's going to sort of just disappear, I hope."

Trump also said that he believed that there would be a Covid-19 vaccine available "very soon".

The US President has also seemingly done a u-turn when it comes to the wearing of protective face masks.

Having previously said that people were wearing masks just to show they disapprove of him, he said in a recent interview that he is now "all for masks".

Back in April, Trump said he would not wear a mask when meeting other world leaders, saying: "I don't know, somehow, I don't see it for myself."

This comes after his opponent in the upcoming presidential election, Joe Biden, said that he would mandate mask wearing nationally if he is to be elected.

Meanwhile, the US government's top infectious disease specialist, Anthony Fauci, has said that new US coronavirus infections could soon hit 100,000 a day.
