Trump Says He Wouldn’t Need Vaccine Mandates: ‘I Would Convince People’
Former President Donald Trump said this week that he would not mandate Covid-19 shots for Americans if he were in office because he can “convince people” to take it voluntarily, unlike the Biden administration, RSBN reported.
“I wouldn’t say to anybody, ‘You have to.’ But I would sell it. Look, I’m very proud of what we did with the vaccines,” Trump told Bill O’Reilly in an interview on The First TV.
“It was supposed to take five years and they said it wasn’t going to work,” said Trump. “I did three vaccines in less than nine months and they do work, they work really well.”
The former president continued, “I would convince people, take it. I don’t want to push it. When I was president, there was no talk about mandates or anything. Everybody wanted the vaccine. Now a lot of people don’t want it.”
The Trump administration’s Covid-19 vaccine development program, Operation Warp Speed, resulted in billions of dollars of research in an attempt of creating an immunization against the coronavirus. The Pfizer shot was distributed shortly after the 2020 election during President Trump’s term, despite Joe Biden’s lie that there was no vaccine until he took office.
“I’m very proud of it. I saved millions of lives, but people have to have their freedoms,” Trump told the John Fredericks Show.
While Trump has largely avoided discussing issues of medical tyranny in the United States, he has stressed that taking a COVID-19 shot should be the choice of every American.
“I believe totally in your freedoms. I do, you’re free, you got to do what you have to do,” Trump told supporters during an August rally in Alabama. “But I recommend taking the vaccines. I did it, it’s good, take the vaccines.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have taken the opposite stance, choosing instead to unconstitutionally force millions of American workers in both the public and private sector by Dec. 8 or to face being fired with zero unemployment benefits to follow.
“This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden said in his Sept. 9 address to the nation. “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” he added.
This marked a stark change from Biden and Harris’ previously stated position, which was that they would not get a vaccine if it came out under the watch of former President Donald Trump.
“If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it,” said Harris during last year’s vice presidential debate. “But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”
