Twitter users let out a collective sigh of despair at PresidentÂ Donald Trumpâ€™s latest falsehood.
Trump claimed during a White House speech on police reform Tuesday that scientists have â€œcome up with the AIDS vaccine.â€
Medical professionals, celebrities, journalists, political commentators and others were quick to fact-check the presidentâ€™s erroneous claim, reminding him there is currently no vaccine available to prevent people from contracting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
In response, many of Trumpâ€™s critics highlighted his appalling record of telling lies. The Washington Post notes that Trump, as of May 29, had made 19,127 false or misleading claimsÂ since his inauguration in January 2017.
â€œToo bad there isnâ€™t a vaccine for serial liars,â€ one person responded to the presidentâ€™s latest fabrication.
Added another: â€œFortunately, there is a vaccine for protecting yourself from ignorant, unprepared, emotionally-stunted, racist presidents: Vote.â€
