President Trump argues that more Americans would be vaccinated if Joe Biden did not implement his series of coercive mandates.
During an interview with Jason Rantz on KTTH, Trump said, “That’s why they don’t take the vaccine.”
“When I was president, they were all, everybody was lining up for the vaccine,” he continued.
“We were doing over a million people a day. And that was early,” Trump continued. “We would have had many times that number.”

Trump has been vaccinated and he has encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated.

“They didn’t know if they could come up and not only that. Not only did I get it done, but I bought billions of dollars worth before we even had it. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have your shots yet.”
