Just when you thought it was safe to watch the news again, Donald Trump makes an appearance.
The former United States president is apparently taking credit for Americans having access to the coronavirus vaccines.
In a statement released yesterday, because he’s still pretty much banned on all social media platforms, Trump said the nation would not have received the vaccines were it not for his efforts.
Still referring to the pandemic as the “China virus”, Trump stated, “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,” the ex-president said in a statement released by his office Wednesday evening. “I hope everyone remembers!”
The US has given at least one jab of the mostly two-shot vaccines to over 62 million Americans. Almost 33 million people are fully vaccinated since the US began its inoculation programme in December.
Trump’s term as president ended in January following the swearing in of Joe Biden who was elected to office last November.
