Pro-Vax Trump Doubles Down

Former President Donald Trump’s recent comments touting COVID-19 vaccines as a major achievement of his presidency have irked some of his supporters that are ardently opposed to the vaccine.

Trump’s first comments came on during an event in Dallas, Texas, on December 19, wherein he told former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that he’d received the booster shot — a revelation that was met with some boos from the crowd.

The former president continued touting the vaccine as a major accomplishment of his administration in subsequent interviews.

“I came up with a vaccine, with three vaccines,” Trump told conservative pundit Candace Owens. “All are very, very good. Came up with three of them in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.”

In that same interview, Trump pushed back when Owens suggested that the vaccines weren’t safe.

“Oh no, the vaccine works,” Trump interrupted Owens, who said she was not vaccinated. “The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take the vaccine.”

“Look, the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you do get it, it’s a very minor form,” Trump added. “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine.”

Though Trump supports the vaccine, he does not support vaccine mandates.

“If you don’t want to take it, you shouldn’t be forced to take it. No mandates,” Trump told O’Reilly.

“It’s still their choice,” he told Owens.

“There is a chunk of the base that just doesn’t trust the vaccines, and I think there was a real feeling that Trump was with them on that. I think hearing him actually point out that, you know, the vaccines are safe — there’s kind of this inherent tension with the anti-vax crowd who likes the president, who, rightly or wrongly, thinks he’s on their side.”

Polls suggest that most Republicans support vaccines and are vaccinated, but not by a wide margin.

In September, a Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that 58% of Republican respondents were vaccinated, compared to 90% of Democrats and 68% of independents.

Republican Strategist Keith Naughton told The Hill he was “a little” surprised by Trump’s recent pro-vaccination comments, but it also made political sense.

“On the surface, it’s surprising. But when you think about it, it’s a sensible thing,” Naughton said. “It’s a sign that he is running. I think he knows he can’t just be part of that extremist side, he’s got to branch out.”

Trump’s recent comments have ruffled the feathers of some right-wing pundits. Owens later said 75-year-old Trump is “too old” to research the vaccines on the internet. Infowars host Owen Shroyer said the comments “leave a bad taste in our mouth.”

However, some within the GOP welcomed Trump’s remarks.

“For the past year, some of these fringe voices were allowed to speak, and then he didn’t respond to it. Now he spoke, and now these fringe voices just realize how small their voices are compared to the former president of the United States,” one Trump ally told The Hill.

Some experts say if Trump continues to promote the vaccine, it will lead to an inevitable conflict with parts of the right.

“There is a chunk of the base that just doesn’t trust the vaccines, and I think there was a real feeling that Trump was with them on that,” one GOP operative said. “I think hearing him actually point out that, you know, vaccines are safe — there’s kind of this inherent tension with the anti-vax crowd who likes the president, who, rightly or wrongly, thinks he’s on their side.”

“It’s a weird dynamic.”

    Trump was played easily because he is dangerously naive.

    1. C Sabo says:

      you “DON’T” fight a BIO-WEAPON with another “BIO-WEAPON”!

      1. Bruce N. says:

        made by the same group of people. Fauci created the COVID-19 from Sars-COV-1. Fauci lied about his research into HCQ and Zinc being effective against Sars-COV viruses. Fauci pushed the creation of the mRNA genetic mutation drugs as the only cure.
        What happens when both of Fauci’s poisons are put into the same body in enough saturation? We’ll all find out in about 2.5 years.

    2. Angelika says:

      My thinking too….

      1. Bubba says:

        I firmly believe that President Trump was and has been lied to by some of his inner circle that are more on the globalist side. I’m sure he’s read reports of the deaths and probably told it was underlying conditions but I think it be best he says something about kids shouldn’t take the vaccines! More kids have died from the vaccine than the fauci virus! I just hope I’m wrong on the future of low birth rates, I haven’t seen anything on birth rates for 2021 compared to 2019? Have y’all?

        1. Cookie Bruno says:

          Most of the youngsters that took the vaccine will be sterile if they live that long. Myocarditis isn’t rare among youngsters and athletes worldwide. According to VAERS, which under 1% of deaths are reported, 20,000 deaths so far and over 850,000 adverse effects from the vaccine. I don’t care if Trump promotes it and I wouldn’t care if Jesus promoted it. If you value your life you’ll stay away from it. Just to avoid a cold like influenza thats insane. Dr. Campbell just listed the symptoms for Omacron, sneezing, headache, fatigue and a runny nose. I remember the days when that was called the common cold, which BTW, is a corona virus.

        2. Bruce N says:

          Trump is the outsider who picked nothing but insiders to lead his cabinet. He wasn’t the best, just the best of what we had to pick from.

    3. TerryPrays2 says:

      I would never use the word “dangerously” concerning any naivete on President Trumps behalf. Granted, he “speaks from the cuff” and speaks what he feels sure about. But that is not to be misconstrued as dangerous naivete. He has been deceived by those he felt were trustworthy. But the very second he found out otherwise he Lambasted them to Kingdom Come! So even in this vaccine debate, all any of us need say is more like; That is what he feels is correct. But we can be assured that if more information is brought to light, we can take it to the bank that he will form a Strong Stance and will not back off from it. Above all else we know for certain that he cares far too much for This Nation & everyone in it, to EVER Mandate Vaccines or anything else that will harm us, put us out of work or give our Jobs & Financial Strength away to any other people or Nation. So let’s be so very careful with our words. I believe you mean/meant only the best, but in this political powder keg climate, we can never be too careful. I know that the Left is trying to get inside of our/these sites to incite us into hating even President Trump. They will seem so sly & subtle and are such Masters of Manipulation. Just be careful, because if there is one thing we know, it’s that they are Terrified of Trump getting back in to Expose them and turn everything back to where we left off to show them up & to stop their money schemes & illegal voting desires. Ballot Box Stuffing, people refusing to work or get out without a mask, so that they can eternally keep the lies of Covid terrifying people into voting from home to insure they have plenty to cheat with. Paying Illegals to keep them in office forever. So, Let’s give the only thing that Terrifies them! Let’s give em Trump!!!! Praise God!

    4. Qballrail says:

      Naive and probably suffering from dimensia, unfortunately.

  2. Dwain Huff says:

    We’re never going to this battle as long as we continue to use the media’s mischaracterization of these medical research trial injections as vaccines, these are not vaccines. Vaccines are licensed and approved for safety by the federal food and drug administration, these are emergency use authorized medical trial injections that the federal consent forms characterized as investigative drugs with known and unknown risks factors.

  3. messup says:

    This one is easy: Trump comes from the “Private Sector.” See, “The Private Sector” is ruthless, it weeds out the weak, double-dealers and phony’s. See, It’s called “profit and Loss statement.” Some business tycoons go so far as to use “Zero Based Budgeting.” This is the most extreme form of “ruthless Capitalism.” Simply nobody can fudge their poor performance and subsequently get “canned.” Getting another like paying job, for these “canned executives” will never, ever happen. Now, in the “Public Sector,” incompetence is rewarded (Mueller, Christopher Wray, Milley, John Roberts, Stacy Abrams, Mike Pence – the list is long and really painful). That is the really sad affairs of our USA “Public Sector.” Need really glaring proof? HRC, OBama, Susan Rice, Harvard University..(.to name the “top tier”) Enter Donald Trump to this array of “swampness.” How to from a cabinet? Who is best Medical Science Researcher? YEP! Trump HAD TO PICK THE TOP-LEVEL MOST INCOMPETENT NINCOMPOOPS IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR…President Trump’s decision’s were THEIR decisions…will they own up to it? NAH! Hide under their glorious desks. There, DJT did the best with abject INCOMPETENCE he was surrounded with. Pray. Amen. And these bozos are on nightly TV with their MANDATES. Pray. Amen. God Bless America. Read A Bible. KJV. (and Fauci’s retirement is “milliondollar” status) rewarded abject failure. Psalm 128. Fauci is a liar. Bible, Tutor Pods combat CRT. Kitchen Militias (created in 1973). Pledge of Allegiance in all schools combat CRT and LGBTQ decimate them. Contract With America. Amen. God is in Control.

    1. Ace says:

      “There, DJT did the best with abject INCOMPETENCE he was surrounded with. ”

      Pretty much this, there’s simply too many obstacles and walls in front of Trump. He HAS to promote the vaccine because that was supposedly one of the biggest losses of votes he got from, for ‘not doing enough about COVID’ or not handling it well. He HAS to show he was also part of the solution against “fighting the COVID”.

      No matter what people think about covid being real or not, he has to cater to the middle voters and on both sides that he’s promoting vaccines and therefore promoting the health of Americans. Even if he calls it fake (or the vaccine as fake and dangerous), the whole country will think he’s absolute batsy, and not worth voting for next election.

      The public opinion and view on the vaccine and the virus is warped because of the leftists and the leftist media. With the cheating in elections, even with more and more people waking up to the lies, its still not enough. Every damn Democrat presidency and governor term sets us back from here on out because of their strong uniformity in satanic ideology and marxism.

  4. Studi30 says:

    All this talk of vaccines now is moot. We aren’t getting sick and dying from the Kung Flu. The US has reached herd immunity. Of course you wouldn’t know that from the leftwing media and people in our Federal Government.

  5. Skyplott says:

    I have been praying for Trump’s return daily, believing he can save our country. But his remarks on the vaccine have changed my mind. The vaccine (per her doctors) killed my sister last September. And there are too many FACTUAL STATISTICS published about deaths and resulting health problems in addition to stillborns with vaccinated mothers, etc. etc. Now I’m wondering if Trump is staying up to date with the WHOLE WORLD SITUATION of this political “pandemic.”

  6. Lawrence says:

    There are a great many things to like about Trump. But his insistence to blow his horn regarding the gene therapy issue is really sad. One. He does not even acknowledge the incredible number of deaths and injuries from these vaccines. Two. Trump refuses to listen to a large number of medical experts, biochemists and even the developer of the mRNA vaccine detailing not only their lack of efficacy, but the physical damage these jabs are doing. I don’t care how pro American a politician claims to be, if he looks the other way while people are dying from injections that the he proudly claims he developed, there is a serious disconnect. Three. Perhaps the reason the jab was developed in “record” time was because the pharmaceutical companies had been working on it before the virus appeared. Or, the jabs came out quickly because all the trial protocols were fudged or never done and the agencies involved to insure they were safe were on board with the big money. Pathetic. Wake up Donald.

  7. eric says:

    Its shocking to see how filled with hate the media and democrats are towards President trump! P thought Ronald Reagan was one of the best Presidents ever President Trump helped my family!

  8. B says:

    Trump is definitely naive if he thinks that the vaccines are a good thing.
    I guess that is why he allowed A.G. Barr into his inner circle, even though he was as traitor.
    Trump needs to get real…vaccines are inherently dangerous & those with other agendas should not be allowed into positions of power.
    He needs to learn these lessons or he will fail abysmally.

  9. Cliff says:

    Well Donald, if those three vaccines you are touting are so safe, why are thousands of people dying from them and hundreds of thousands being harmed by them? I think being the leader of the free world has swelled your brain.

  10. Bilbo Baggins says:

    My wife’s parents, both died from covid or the vaccine. She was fully vaccinated and died of pneumonia. He died of a stoke within a few days of receiving the clot-shoot booster.

  11. Mary Sikorsky says:

    If Trump really is too dumb to research the vaccines then he is too dumb to be president of the USA. It seems that Candice is trying to make excuses for him which leads me to believe she is a strong supporter. Former Trump supporters need to wake up before he divides and destroys the republican party.

  12. Lee Vail says:

    He lost my support with these statements

  13. Linda says:

    I know for a FACT one person in my circle, which is small, had both the vaxx and a booster and came close to dying from a MASSIVE blood clot, His statement is a LIE and I voted for him TWICE.

    1. Project Zero Point says:

      My friend got the booster as well and formed a blood clot. He is still dealing with the complications. Trump shouldn’t be promoting a bio-weapon.

    2. Robert Luzzi says:

      spot on Linda – I voted for him twice as well but his refusal to accept the truth – that he screwed up the whole COVID scam – tells me he needs to go away. My sister took the jab and has been dealing with fluid around the heart and blood clots for months – the stuff is poison. His giant ego and 360 narcissism bubble is what help create this mess. The “vaccine” was never necessary and was and is a means to an entirely different end. If he was half the business man he claims to be he would have allowed…no demanded….more information from the real experts, many of which were trying to get to him.

      And I wish this website would stop advertising face diapers….extremely annoying – I’ll be cancelling this site.

  14. Procompmt says:

    This is Trump sounding like Sean Hannity, patting himself on the back in self-praise. Obviously, they don’t realize that that their narcissism turns people off. Trump may have put the wheels in motion, but he, personally, developed nothing of the vaccines. Also, to praise that they are all very good is ludicrous and proves he does not do his research. Possibly he never heard of VAERS. Maybe he doesn’t research any other parts of the world.

    It’s a small world, and I don’t have a vast network of people I know, but I know several people, including relatives, that were completely healthy that ended up with bad side effects, and a couple that died after receiving his “very safe vaccines(jabs)”. that have Times like this, when he spouts off at the mouth, about what he supposedly knows, makes me wonder, what is his true agenda? I hope the Republicans, or the Independents put forth a respectable candidate for 2024.

    Let’s Go Brandon

    1. Robert Luzzi says:

      spot on – His giant ego and 360 narcissism bubble is what help create this mess. The “vaccine” was never necessary and was and is a means to an entirely different end. If he was half the business man he claims to be he would have allowed…no demanded….more informational briefs from real experts outside government. For someone supposedly so skeptical of the swamp he sure took all their advice. I also know quite a few people with various post-“vaccine” issues and injuries; the stuff is poison and Trump’s refusal to be honest with himself and us tells us all we need to know…he needs to go away.

  15. TerryPrays2 says:

    Thank God that President Trump is only speaking what he believes. Also in so doing, the very evil leftists & media can’t find a way to pin on him the deaths of anyone who dies who are not vaccinated. AND We all know, that is exactly the very next thing they would do and likely were already planning “To Do”. Most Importantly for ALL of us to be Thankful for is that President Trump is the one person who would never cower down to the Left, be Threatened or Intimidated, or bought off to Mandate or Force Vaccines on any U.S. Citizen. Even this site we are in right here & right now, used a cover pic to this story showing Trump holding up both thumbs which would cause many people to think that he was giving to thumbs up to double down on the Vaccine. So even the people we assume are for us or often “Centrists” which in & of itself is usually a good thing. It should be the Gold Standard for Equal & Fair Reporting for all of the Media Outlets. But, sadly no longer is. So now, we must be so careful not to be distracted or misled by anyone at all. Just remember exactly Who Trump is, was & has proven to be in & for our Nation. He Keeps Fighting & Standing up for America, our Military Troops, Freedom of Speech, freedom of Religion. For Jobs, our Economy, Lower Taxes, our own Supply of Gas, Oil produced in our Own Land. Safe & Closed Borders to “ILLEGAL” aliens, sex & drug traffickers. A Trusted Friend to all of our proven to be trustworthy Allies such as Israel & Jerusalem and several others now & to come. He doesn’t even demand that we pay for the killing of our Unborn Babies. He doesn’t even condone mixed genders in our Sons & Daughters Dressing, Locker & Restrooms. We have to make certain that he makes it back to make certain that the Left is called to pay for every evil deed they have forced upon us, our families, the violence, inflation, uncontrolled voting and getting the illegals & even known Terrorists ALL kicked back out!!! If we take someone new who is untried or new at this critical juncture, he will most likely try to make peace like “Milk Toast” Mitch McConnell. So Stand up & Stand Strong & Resolute. We will take our Nation Back & also see many go to jail or federal prison. God Bless America! God Bless the U.S.A.!!!

    1. Cookie Bruno says:

      Saying the unvaccinated are in the hospital is a lie. THe hospitals are filling up, for the first time, and they call vaccine injury Covid breakthrough because they aren’t allowed to say people are injured and dying after taking the vaccine. Go to any of the free speech sites, Bitchute, Brighteon, Rumble and look up Dr.Wakefield, Dr.Carrie Madej, Dr.Tenpenny, Dr. David Martin, Dr.Ardis are just a few that aren’t censored on those sites. You will be amazed at the information that can be found.

      1. Ace says:

        The quote of his says “those who get sick and end up in the hospital are those who were unvaccinated”, which is different than saying unvaccinated people go to the hospital due to sickness. He’s simply stating people who end up at the hospital because of covid, usually are those who are unvaccinated.

        Funny enough, I keep seeing stories of covid outbreaks in facilities and vehicles with only fully vaxxed adults and children.

        The liberal media would LOVE to report conservatives/right wing nutjobs getting the covid from their Trump rallies or such. But correct me if I’m wrong, that has never even happened yet.

  16. Mike says:

    I’m more than “irked” he quote “The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take the vaccine.” Puts him in Crazy Joe territory, obviously he has no clue what statistics are actually showing.
    I’ve long been a supporter but maybe it’s time for someone else.

    Also am really annoyed by Owens comment about him being “too old” to research vaccines on the internet. I’m just a couple years younger than Trump and I do lots of research daily on the internet, sometimes regarding Covid and “vaccines” and have no problems due to my age.
    She tried making a lame excuse and instead insulted all seniors, she doesn’t sound nearly as intelligent as I used to think she was. Where is her apology?

    Also

    1. Ace says:

      No offense but she’s not wrong about boomers not being as tech savvy and swimming in the stupidly deep internet of fake information. Trump was originally a Democrat to begin with and isn’t exactly a conservative to begin with so I don’t understand why everyone’s all huffy puffy shocked about all this.

      My parents have only just gotten better with browsing the net for info on tablets or PC over the last decade because they spent more time with technology. My dad isn’t the best with it but because he spent more time with the tablet, he’s kinda immersed. Trump is just one of those grand-dads who haven’t spent much time with technology enough.
      There’s a real gap in finding the right info and Trump is just another example of how many American civilians follow common/popular sources of news, and in their imperfection, struggle to see what is true or false information. We all have the same problem.

  17. SLOJOE SUX says:

    Ron De Santis!!!

    1. Chris says:

      yesssss!!!!!!!

  18. Qballrail says:

    What little confidence o had in Trump after the Election is gone. The shot is not a vaccine. He sounds more like a Democrat all the time… again. I know that prior to 2016, he was registered Democrat.. Despite his promotion of personal choice and not supporting lockdowns or mandatory shots, he does sound easily duped. I once supported the man. Not anymore.
