Trump claims Americans are refusing to get a COVID vaccine because they don’t trust Biden

Former President Donald Trump has claimed that vaccination rates are falling because the public does not trust the Biden administration, the mainstream media and the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In a statement posted to his “Save America” ​​website, the former president wrote: “Joe Biden kept talking about how well he is doing with the distribution of the vaccine developed by Operation Warp Speed ​​or, simply, the Trump- administration .

“He’s not doing well at all. He is way behind schedule, and people are refusing to take the vaccine because they don’t trust his government, they don’t trust the election results, and they certainly don’t trust the fake news that refuses to tell the truth. ‘

Vaccination efforts appear to have stalled in recent weeks, with 520,000 vaccines now being administered per day, compared to a peak of 3.38 million in April.

The Biden administration hoped that at least 70 percent of American adults would have been partially vaccinated against COVID on Independence Day — a target they missed by three percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Former President Donald Trump said Sunday that fewer people are being vaccinated because they do not trust the Biden administration, he wrote in a statement on his website.

Trump and conservative media have criticized President Biden for failing to credit Trump for making the vaccine through Operation Warp Speed, but many Trump supporters have refused to get the vaccine.

The Trump administration established Operation Warp Speed ​​in April 2020 to facilitate and accelerate the development, production and distribution of COVID vaccines. The public-private partnership has been praised by people on both sides of the aisle.

However, the first time Trump encouraged his followers to get the vaccine was in March, after it was revealed that he and Melania Trump received the COVID vaccine in January.

But Biden doesn’t blame Trump for missing his administration’s target. The president publicly called on Facebook on Saturday for “killing people” and allegedly allowing misinformation about vaccinations on his platform.

A source from the Biden administration said the White House has been asking for “months” for help in fighting what it called disinformation, according to Fox News.

Despite its inflated statements, Facebook has not done enough to stamp out falsehoods, the government official said.

Facebook has defended itself against US President Joe Biden’s claim in a lengthy corporate blog post by Guy Rosen, a vice president of the company.

In the post, he wrote: “The data shows that 85% of Facebook users in the US have or want to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Biden’s goal was for 70% of Americans to be vaccinated by July 4. Facebook is not the reason that this goal was not achieved.’

The disagreement has spread after the Indian Delta variant has been torn apart around the world — and is now showing up in U.S. data, which is responsible for as many as 97 percent of infections in some states. information circulating about the shots – information the White House believes is false.
