“What’s going to happen is it’s going to continue to increase as we move along, and we’ll have reached 400 million by the end of May and 600 million by the end of July,” Biden added.
ICYMI – Biden claims during CNN Town Hall there was no vaccine when he came into office, while he himself received the first dose back in 2020, and on Trump’s last day in office, the U.S. performed over 1 million vaccinations.pic.twitter.com/7uSag7OoM7— Disclose.tv 🚨 (@disclosetv) February 17, 2021
“The biggest thing, though, as you remember, when you and I— I shouldn’t say it that way as you remember when you and I talked last we talked about, it’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator.”How do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?” LOL!
As CNN reported in December, Biden received his first dose of the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine on live television.The shot was administered at Christiana Care’s Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware, by Tabe Mase. Biden even said the Trump administration deserved “some credit” for Operation Warp Speed and their role in making coronavirus vaccinations possible. In November, Donald Trump accused pharmaceutical companies of attempting to prevent his victory over Biden.
“Pfizer and others even decided to not assess the results of their vaccine, in other words, not come out with a vaccine, until just after the election,” Trump said.Trump said the companies purposely delayed the vaccine results while noting they planned to assess the data as early as October but postponed it.“So they waited and waited and waited, and they thought they’d come out with it a few days after the election, and it would have probably had an impact, who knows, maybe it wouldn’t have,” Trump said.
Last year, Billionaire Bill Gates warned the COVID vaccine might need several doses in order to be effective. The Microsoft founder accused the Trump administration at the time of making “serious mistakes” before warning that schools may not return to normality until the fall of 2021.
Former President Donald Trump has lambasted Joe Biden, as being either dishonest or “mentally gone” when Biden falsely made the claim.
“He was either not telling the truth or he was mentally gone, one or the other,” Trump told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.
“He’s getting lit up on that one,” Trump said, referring to the social media backlash over Biden’s statement. “Could he be joking? Because, frankly, that was a very dumb statement.”
During a CNN town hall on Feb. 16, Biden told the host, “It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?” Earlier during the same event, Biden spoke of 50 million vaccine doses being available when he came into office.
Biden received a full course of a two-dose vaccine before he took office on Jan. 20. The United States had administered 1 million doses by Dec. 24 last year.
In a wide-ranging interview, Trump shared his first assessment of the new administration, criticizing Biden over his approach to communist China and illegal immigration.
“The whole thing is so ridiculous. We had China exactly where we wanted them,” Trump said.
Trump gave several interviews on Feb. 17 in the wake of the death of his friend and conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. During the Newsmax interview, he spoke at length about the 2020 election, calling it “rigged” and “stolen.”
“Really bad and dishonest things happened,” Trump said, pointing out that he received 75 million votes—more than any incumbent president in history.
“When they say ‘stop the steal,’ they’re not just kidding. It’s a disgrace. It’s like a third-world country with the election. So we have to get that straightened out and I think get to the bottom of what happened … both going forward but we also have to go back,” Trump said.
Trump also weighed in on his ban from social media, saying that Parler, a social media platform, wanted to bring him on. He noted that his Twitter audience alone was larger than the total audience of Parler, making it “mechanically” impossible to come onto the platform.
Trump confirmed that he missed being president but would not say if he would run in 2024.
