House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Thursday he believes President Donald Trump over the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's chief when it comes to the timeline of having a COVID-19 vaccine.

"We're going to have a safe and effective vaccine this year, and listen to the preparation of what we've been able to do with Operation Warp Speed, to be able to deliver it. When that time comes, if I just take the words of the CDC and the president, the president's right," said McCarthy, The Hill reported.

On Wednesday, Trump said CDC director Robert Redfield was wrong when he told a Senate panel that a vaccine won't be widely available until the second or third quarter of 2021. Trump said a vaccine could be ready in weeks.

"That's incorrect information. I believe he was confused," Trump said of Redfield. "I think he just misunderstood the question, probably."

McCarthy, a California Republican said, "I think one of those two individuals had more information than the other, and that was the president."
