Donald Trump exposed one thing about the coronavirus vaccine that will concern every American
Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed is responsible for developing multiple coronavirus vaccines.
But now a massive scandal just erupted.
And Donald Trump exposed one thing about the coronavirus vaccine that will concern every American.
On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration announced it was pausing use of Johnson & Johnson’s single shot vaccine because six women between the ages of 18 and 49 developed blood clots out of 7,000,000 doses administered.
The FDA offered confusing guidance about why this was happening and why the less than 1 in a million chance of an adverse side effect led many to believe that so-called “public health experts” that supported endless lockdowns and mask mandates overreacted and paused a vaccine that could bring the pandemic to an end.
President Trump ripped the FDA’s decision in a statement attacking the FDA for promoting vaccine hesitancy by raising doubts in the minds of Americans about the safety and effectiveness of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
“The Biden Administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a ‘pause’ in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine,” Trump’s statement read. “The results of this vaccine have been extraordinary but now it’s reputation will be permanently challenged. The people who have already taken the vaccine will be up in arms.”
Trump blasted the FDA for making what he saw was a politically motivated decision to pause the vaccine despite claiming to be an independent agency.
“The FDA, especially with longtime bureaucrats within, has to be controlled,” Trump added. “They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it.”
Trump’s called out the FDA and Pfizer before.
The FDA announced two days after the election it would grant an emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.
It was obvious to many Americans that the FDA and Pfizer held off news of the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness against the coronavirus until after the election in order to help Joe Biden win.
