There was a problem reporting this.
Blacks and hispanics report the lowest (though improving) vaccination rates. These are key Democrat constituencies. I don,t remember Trump down-playing vaccines. To the contrary, Democrat politicians and journalists were the nay-sayers until Biden,s election. The tune got changed but the malicious damage these people caused has remained.
President Trump said the U.S. will overcome the coronavirus crisis with or without an effective vaccine, saying that the disease will “go away at some point” either way.
Trump and Melania quietly received the Covid-19 vaccine at the White House in January.
Trump said in March 2020 he knew COVID-19 was more deadly than the flu, and was likely spread through the air.
Trump told Bob Woodward, in more than a dozen taped interviews, that he wanted to avoid panic during the early days of the pandemic, so he downplayed the risk, saying repeatedly the virus would one day disappear.
I understand the fear of blacks given the government’s history of experimentation on black pre 1970s.
And so Trump downplayed CoViD and the need for a vaccine. This is on Trump.
This was pre-vaccine. The vaccine changed everything but Trump-loathing.
Oh no it wasn’t Mrs. Robinson. Especially not when Donnie and Melania secretly got the vaccine. That would be some interesting transmorgrifacation..
Though it's not much recognized today, I,ll remind you that there is a big difference between “secret” and “quiet.” There is no way Melania Trump would have gotten vaccinated in public - and the Donald had other things on his mind back in January.
Here,s more from one of your favorite sources:
I,m not going to continue this conversation. Whac-a-mole is ultimately neither constructive nor interesting.
Trump and his Trumplicans pushed bad medicine while down playing the vaccine. And the right wing has not embraced the vaccine since with politicians like Rand Paul.
