It finally happened! Yesterday Joe Biden finally gave President Trump the credit he deserved for getting a vaccine within 9 months time.
“Thanks to the prior administration and our scientific community, America was one of the first countries to get the vaccine,” Biden had said.
“Thanks to my administration and the hard work of Americans, we led a rollout that made America among the world leaders in getting shots in arms,” added the president.
Trump’s administration helped develop the three US-approved COVID-19 vaccines by pouring billions into research and development through Operation Warp Speed.
Biden went on to praise Trump for getting a booster shot. I gotmy booster shot as soon as they were available, and just the other day, former President Trump announced that he had gotten his booster shot.”
Biden called for "calm" while he was frequently-coughing or clearing his throat. Believe it or not the Omicron variant now accounts for over 70% of COVID-19 cases in the United States. Thus the Biden administration plans to buy half a billion rapid tests which will be available in mid January. Some of the reporters on hand asked why he waited so long to get the tests?
When Trump heard it he told Fox News: “I’m very appreciative of that—I was surprised to hear it.” “I think it was a terrific thing and I think it makes a lot of people happy.”
