Donald Trump accused the Biden administration of falling behind the Chinese Communist Party (CC) Virus vaccination schedule.
The former president believes American people distrust his successor, the November election result, and fake news media.
“Joe Biden kept talking about how good of a job he is doing on the distribution of the vaccine that was developed by Operation Warp Speed or, quite simply, the Trump administration,” he said in statement. “He Is not doing well at all.”
The remarks come after the Biden administration failed to meet its goal to immunize 70 percent of the national population at least once against the CCP Virus before Independence Day.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows 176.1 million, or 68.2% of American adults received at least one vaccine shot as of July 18. Biden still has not met his target.
CDC figures also show 153.5 million adults, or 59.4%, were fully vaccinated against the deadly disease.
The former president suspects many people are unwilling to try experimental vaccines because they mistrust the last presidential election and mainstream media coverage.
“He is way behind schedule,” Trump said of Biden. “People are refusing to take the vaccine because they do not trust his administration, they do not trust the election results, and they certainly do not trust the fake news, which is refusing to tell the truth.”
President Biden previously promoted a “door-to-door” push to convince those, who have not been vaccinated, to receive the jab.
According to the July 4 Economist/YouGov Poll, 27% of respondents “strongly approve” of how Biden is handling CCP Virus pandemic while 26% “strongly disapprove.”
Meanwhile, 25% said they somewhat approve and 12% somewhat disapprove.
