Former President Donald Trump eased the concerns some of his supporters had about the rapidly released Coronavirus vaccine. In an explosive interview with Fox News, Trump recommended the vaccine even to people “that don’t want to get it.”
“It’s a great vaccine. It’s a safe vaccine and it’s something that works.”

Though the Former President recommends the vaccine and considers it safe, he does not support mandated vaccination whatsoever, stating, “But, again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that without question.”
Recently Trump has faced some pressure to speak out on the vaccine he helped create. A member of his coronavirus task force, Adm. Brett Giroir, urged Trump to address vaccine hesitancy among Republicans.
Dr. Fauci was another proponent of Trump speaking up. Despite significant missteps of his own, Fauci did play an integral role in President Trump’s fight against the “invisible plague.”
In a recent poll, 47% of Trump supporters revealed they would not take the COVID vaccine. Additionally, 41% of Republicans overall say they are skeptical to get the shot.
The Former President himself received the coronavirus vaccine along with the Former First Lady, but mainstream media remained largely silent, focusing more on Biden’s efforts.
Trump urged his supporters at CPAC to get vaccinated as well — another omission from the liberal press.
