Trump Reacts To Biden Vaccine Claims

Former President Donald Trump took a swipe at his successor in an interview on Newsmax over his statements about the availability of Covid-19 vaccines during a recent presidential town hall.

Biden’s statement

During the town hall, Biden falsely said that “we didn’t have” a vaccine against the virus when he came in office in late January, even though he took two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine before he was sworn in on Jan. 20.

“It’s one thing about the vaccine – which we didn’t have when we came into office – but a vaccinator, you need the needle, you need the mechanisms to be able to get it in,” the president said, according to Fox News. “Now, we have made significant strides increasing the number of vaccinators.”

Trump’s response

Trump gave a phone interview on Newsmax Wednesday to issue his response to the death of the great radio host Rush Limbaugh, who passed away that day from lung cancer.

Newsmax host Greg Kelly briefly changed the subject and asked Trump whether he watched Biden’s presidential town hall Tuesday in Milwaukee.

“Well I saw that he said that there was no vaccine when he came into office,” Trump began, underscoring that Biden was himself vaccinated not too long ago.

He continued: “So he was either not telling the truth or he’s mentally gone, one or the other and he’s getting — actually Joe Biden is being killed on that whole thing, because even the haters said, ‘Well wait a minute, you know this vaccine was announced long before,’ and I believe he got the shot sometime before January twentieth.”

“Could he be joking?” Trump asked. “Because frankly, that was a very dumb statement.”

Trump’s former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also called out Biden over his claim, which she stressed is “abjectly false.”

“Biden says there was no vaccine when he came into office. That is abjectly FALSE. President Trump brought about the fastest vaccine for a novel pathogen in history. How does Joe get away with this?” McEnany tweeted.

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale said Biden “clearly wasn’t trying to claim the vaccine did not exist at all under Trump,” while Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler said the remark was a “verbal stumble,” and said critics should “cool the outrage meter,” according to Fox News.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper also didn’t correct the president when he made the false statement.

Vice President Kamala Harris was also called out recently after claiming that “in many ways” the new administration is “starting from scratch” on a Covid-19 vaccination plan — a statement directly contradicted by Biden’s top Covid-19 adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Hey …. visit CNN sometime and ask yourself, “Would this be any different if it were produced by the Democratic party?” #DontTrustTheMedia
