President Donald Trump sounded a chipper note Monday morning on his administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The president will meet with drugmakers at the White House to discuss a potential vaccine, which experts have said is far off from being broadly available to the public.

"I am meeting with the major pharmaceutical companies today at the White House about progress on a vaccine and cure," Trump tweeted. "Progress being made!"

Other social media users piled on, saying his message was overly and unrealistically optimistic.
