Former President Donald Trump at CPAC 2021 on Sunday night went all-in on taking credit for the coronavirus vaccine rushed out at "warp speed" and admitted to pressuring the FDA to approve it, despite potential risks.
When I left office, and we’re very proud of this because this was something that they said could not be done. The FDA said it, everybody said it, any article that you read said it. Couldn’t be done. It would be years and years. I handed the new administration what everyone is now calling a modern day medical miracle. Some say it’s the greatest thing to happen in hundreds of years, hundreds of years. Two vaccines produced in record time with numerous others on the way, including the Johnson and Johnson vaccine that was approved just yesterday.As vaccine-hesitant Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted in a private meeting with fellow Facebook employees, "we just don't know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people's DNA and RNA" through mRNA vaccines.
Trump just went on record admitting to pressuring the FDA to approve the rushed Pfizer mRNA vaccine. Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, reportedly told FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn on Dec 11 to approve Pfizer's vaccine by the end of the day or be fired.
Hahn immediately caved.
Despite pushing for everyone to take the vaccine, Trump himself has still not taken the vaccine. Trump claimed initially months ago he was eager to take it but then changed course in December and said he looks forward to taking it later "at the appropriate time."
Trump has been extremely skeptical of vaccines in the past and proposed teaming up with Robert F. Kennedy Jr to investigate vaccine safety -- but he dropped that all after getting elected.
Incidentally, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, who sold off 62 percent of his stock on the same day his company announced their vaccine was supposedly 90 percent effective, also has still not taken the vaccine!
If you believe Gallup polls, which I generally do not, half of Republicans said late last month that they wouldn't take an "FDA-approved" vaccine if it was given to them immediately at no cost (these vaccines were only approved through an "Emergency Use Authorization" so the question itself is biased):
If the vaccine works out fine and dandy, perhaps Trump will receive some of the credit.
If the vaccine doesn't work out, you can be damn sure he's going to receive all of the blame.
