Trump says Dems “dismissed” the COVID-19 vaccine while he was president: “Now they wonder why” some are hesitant

“If you remember, when I was president, there were literally lines of people wanting to take it,” Trump said, pointing to vaccine hesitancy among some Americans. “Now, you have a different situation, and it’s very bad.”  Trump, in the exclusive Fox News interview, said that during his administration, more people were interested in getting vaccinated against COVID-19.  Trump went on to point to comments made by some Democrats, including future Vice President Kamala Harris, who said they may not trust the effectiveness of a vaccine that he was pushing. 

The Trump administration created Operation Warp Speed, a public-private partnership to create vaccines against the novel coronavirus, as the pandemic raged in 2020. Under his administration, the Food and Drug Administration approved emergency use authorizations (EUA) for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.  SURGEON GENERAL: COVID NUMBERS DEEPLY CONCERNING, SAYS VACCINES ‘DOING ITS JOB’

Trump, in December 2020, signed an executive order that would ensure all Americans had access to coronavirus vaccines before the U.S. government could begin aiding nations around the world.  “It shouldn’t be necessary,” Trump said, referring to the mandates which have drawn criticism from Republicans and some in the private sector. 

But pointing back to those against getting a jab, Trump said: “They don’t trust this president, and that’s why they’re not taking it.”  Trump and former first lady Melania Trump received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine in January at the White House. It is unclear which vaccine they received. Trump talked up the vaccines’ benefits in an interview with Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld last week, saying infections among the vaccinated were less severe compared to the unvaccinated at the start of the pandemic: “If you do get sick, you don’t get sick like they were before, meaning you don’t die.” “Look, it was one of my greatest achievements doing it in less than nine months instead of five years, or maybe never,” Trump said, referring to the approval timeline for some vaccines at the FDA. “We saved millions of people all over the world.” 

“They disparaged the vaccine, and now they wonder why people aren’t wanting to take it?” He continued. “It’s a disgrace.”  “Of course, they famously said, if Trump came up with it, I’ll never take it,” Trump recalled.
