Establishment Media Scoffed At Trump
Trump said, “I developed the vaccine when everyone said it wasn’t possible, now without ‘Trump,’ that’s their only solution. This administration is destroying America before our very eyes because there is no leadership.”
In May 2020, closer to the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump tweeted, “vaccine work is looking VERY promising, before end of year.”
At the time, the establishment media mocked Trump for even daring to say that a vaccine might be ready before 2021.
NBC News reported that Trump was on “an accelerated timeline that prominent health experts and veteran vaccine developers say is unlikely absent a miracle.”

Yet thanks in large part to the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed, the Food and Drug Administration approved of a coronavirus vaccine in December 2020.
In addition to reminding Americans of how quickly a vaccine came about during his administration, Trump also criticized the Biden economy.
After experts projected 550,000 new jobs in November, yet there were only new 210,000 jobs, Trump said, “America fell 340,000 jobs short of the very modest expectations set by economists.”
“That’s because Joe Biden is a one trick pony, ‘Get the vaccine.’ But no one trusts this administration,” said Trump.
.@NBCNews, May 15th: “Fact check: Coronavirus vaccine could come this year, Trump says. Experts say he needs a ‘miracle’ to be right.”

Trump Blasts Biden
This was probably Trump observing that Biden and his team harp on increased access to the vaccine is a major accomplishment of the current president.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said recently, “This President has made the vaccine widely available. He’s relied on the help, the advice of his health and medical experts, and he is trying to be a part of solving this crisis.”
Trump added in his Friday statement, “Besides my vaccine, this is the administration of no jobs and massive layoffs, high gas and energy prices, high crime, empty shelves, open borders, and a horrendous surrender and evacuation from Afghanistan.”
“A lot of effort and money went into RIGGING the 2020 Presidential Election, only to destroy the Country,” Trump added. “Was it worth it?”
