As our country marks the one-year anniversary since the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a pandemic, former President Donald Trump has stated that he hopes everyone “remembers” him when the time comes for them to get their vaccine shot.
“I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 [often referred to as the China Virus] Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!” Trump said in his one-sentence statement that bore the logo of “Office of the Former President“.
Trump’s statement Wednesday came hours after President Joe Biden announced his administration planned to order another 100 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine to further push the nation’s efforts to get shots into Americans’ arms.
Trump, meanwhile, set into action the production, testing, and approval for vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, and emergency use approval through the massive Operation Warp Speed initiative.
The New York Times pointed out Thursday that a close look at the vaccine ramp up offers a mixed picture of the successes Biden is touting through statements such as one he made Wednesday, when he said during a White House appearance that last weekend, “we hit a record of 2.9 vaccinations in one day in America,” a figure that has since been disputed.
“The new administration expanded and bulked up a vaccine production effort whose key elements were in place when Mr. Biden took over for President Donald J. Trump,” the New York Times pointed out.
It must be super painful for a radical leftist outlet like the NY Times to admit that former President Trump is responsible for the vaccine success that we’re seeing right now, helping to pave the way for the fastest manufactured vaccine ever.
But that just goes to show you that his leadership during the pandemic was actually much better than the left-wing media lets on. He kept us afloat and helped get things set up for our eventual return to normalcy.
