(PatrioticPost.com)- Former President Donald Trump is very proud of the fact that, under his administration, three COVID-19 vaccines were developed in record time – and during a recent interview with media personality Candace Owens, he took credit for their development once again and encouraged people to go out and take them.
In an interview aired on conservative network The Daily Wire, Trump said that the vaccines were developed at an “incredible speed” and that they are all “very, very good.”
“Came up with three of them in less than nine months,” he said. “I was supposed to take five to 12 years.”
And that’s true – but for some reason, the left-wing media seems to think this is an example of Trump “changing his tune.” It’s…not that at all.
When Owens mentioned to the former president that more people have died of COVID-19 in 2021 than in 2020, despite the vaccines being widely available, Trump doubled down.
“Oh no, the vaccines work, but some people aren’t the ones…the ones who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take the vaccine,” Trump said.
While the vaccines are known to be unable to stop all transmission, it is believed that the vaccines do help lessen the symptoms of those who contract the virus after taking the shot. Trump doubled down on this, saying that those who take the shot are “protected.”
It comes after Trump recently sat down and discussed the pandemic and his presidency with historian Bill O’Reilly. When the president said at the event that he had taken the COVID-19 booster shot, he was met with a small spattering of “boos” from a section of the crowd. And the media loved it.
Why is anybody acting like Trump was ever anti-vaccine? He got them developed in the first place!
