President Trump is back on the campaign trail days after the bombshell Atlantic report claiming he disparaged the military. In several conversations since the story was published, Trump has adamantly denied the comments and bragged about what he’s done for the military. Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth, a U.S. Army veteran who lost both her legs while serving in Iraq, joins AC360 to react to the President’s alleged comments. She says if you set aside the article that nobody disbelieves because it’s very consistent with who Donald Trump is, “he’s done a number of other things that are very consistent that shows that he is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief.” Plus, nine vaccine makers have signed a joint safety pledge in the race for a Covid-19 vaccine. The pledge says they will uphold “high ethical standard,” suggesting they won’t seek premature government approval. President Trump has frequently pushed for a fast vaccine timeline, even hinting there would be one before Election Day. William Haseltine, Chair and President of ACCESS Health International, tells Anderson Cooper “a rush to a vaccine without due caution is a very dangerous thing.”
