Joe Biden and Democrats continue to ignore any role that Trump played in addressing the pandemic.
So, Trump is in full campaign mode and starting to ring the bell on what his administration accomplished on this front.
While he may be exaggerating the numbers, there is no mistaking that if Trump had not approved Operation Warp Speed, many more people would have died from COVID.
I’ll Get My Credit
If Joe Biden really wanted to get more people vaccinated, he would have extended an olive branch to Donald Trump and given him his due regarding Operation Warp Speed.
I may be incorrect, but I can only think of one time when Biden acknowledged the work done by the Trump administration on this front, but he did not even use Trump’s name.
If memory serves, he merely stated, “the previous administration.”
So, now Trump is taking matters into his own hands, telling Fox News, “I think if we didn’t come up during the Trump administration with the vaccine, you could have 100 million people dead, just like you had in 1917.
“You take the Spanish Flu, 100 million people, up to 100 million people, died. I think we’d be in that territory.”
Not surprisingly, Democrats and the media do not look at it that way, blaming Trump for every one of the 600,000+ deaths in the country from COVID, which is utterly ridiculous.
Trump also stated that he does not support mandatory vaccine programs, stating, “I really believe in somebody’s choice, somebody’s freedom.
“I’m a big fan of our freedoms, and people have to make that choice for themselves.”
With possible school shutdowns also being discussed, Trump addressed that issue as well.
He stated, “The schools have to open. These young people are losing a big part of their life and they’re not going to recover from it.
“What they’re going through socially, I mean, they are not dealing with people. … It’s going to leave a scar on their lives.
“It’s going to leave a psychological scar.”
That statement will hit home with a lot of parents, especially now with mask mandates possibly being implemented in schools with Biden’s full backing.
