President Joe Biden said during a CNN town hall Tuesday he hopes to see significant progress by this time next year, with Americans much closer to normalcy in terms of the pandemic — but he made no promises.

Appearing in Milwaukee in his first trip as president, Biden told moderator Anderson Cooper he has been warned by the "experts" heading up the committees advising him on COVID-19 not to make predictions with too much certainty because he will "be held accountable."

Still, he said, factoring in the vaccinations already taking place, along with the expected approval of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in coming weeks, "the ability to continue to spread the disease is going to diminish considerably."

"So if that works that way, as my mother would say with the grace of God and the goodwill of the neighbors, that by next Christmas I think we'll be in a very different circumstance, God willing, than we are today," Biden said. "A year from now, I think that there will be significantly fewer people having to be socially distanced, have to wear a mask, but we don't know. So I don't want to over promise anything here."
