Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do. For instance, I closed our Borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed. The Democrats and the Fake News Media even called me a “xenophobe.” In the end, we saw this was a life-saving decision, and likewise with closing our borders to Europe, specifically to certain heavily infected countries. I was later given credit, even by “Tony,” for saving hundreds of thousands of lives. Dr. Fauci also didn’t put an emphasis on speed of vaccine production because he thought it would take 3, 4, or maybe even 5 years to create. I got it done in less than 9 months with Operation Warp Speed. In retrospect, the vaccine is saving the world. Then, I placed the greatest bet in history. We ordered billions of dollars’ worth of vaccines before we knew it even worked. Had that not been done, our wonderful vaccines would not have been administered until October of this year. No one would’ve had the shot that has now saved the world and millions of lives!
Also, Dr. Fauci was totally against masks when even I thought they would at least be helpful. He then changed his mind completely and became a radical masker!
There are a lot of questions that must be answered by Dr. Fauci. The funding of Wuhan by the U.S. was foolishly started by the Obama Administration in 2014 but ended under the Trump Administration. When I heard about it, I said “no way.” What did Dr. Fauci know about “gain of function” research, and when did he know it?
Charles Abbott says
Trump is completely off-base with the whole vaccine push. These products haven't been proven to have saved anyone's life at this point. They are totally experimental and aren't even out of their phase three safety trails... won't be for months. The number of reported adverse effects is off-the-charts compared to other products of their type. The manufacturers bear no liability/responsibility for injuries or worse caused by these science experiments. How anyone, including the former President, can say with any degree of certainty that rushing to vaccinate the world is a good thing, is extremely naive, or is benefitting in some way, most likely financial!
