Trump: "Not everybody's gonna want to get" the COVID-19 Vaccine (VIDEO)
Trump: COVID-19 Vaccine Is "for everyone that wants to get it! Not everybody's gonna want to get it." (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump made an astounding and very pleasantly surprising admission last week during his COVID-19 Press conference. Here is a description of the exchange, and the relevant clip is below:
Trump gestures for a female reporter to remove her mask and when she doesn't, he tells her "excuse me you're going to have to remove it, you can't hear through your mm..." and he stops before finishing the work "mask."
He then asks one of his staff "what did she say?"
Trump then shakes his head in disapproval and the reporter takes off her mask & goes to the mic and asks, "Do you mean a fully approved vaccine for everyone, the full public, or a partially approved vaccine with emergency use?"
Trump responds "No, we're looking for a full vaccine for everyone that wants to get it! Not everybody's gonna want to get it. But we're looking at a full vaccine." He then immediately looks to his right and asks someone "Is that a correct statement?"
A man who is offscreen replies "yeah we'll..." Trump steps aside and directs the unnamed man to the podium, and he sternly replies "so the answer is, the answer is yes, we're working for a fully approved vaccine, but we'll also use the tools we have, for instance emergency use authorization , umm, as as appropriate, we use all of our regulatory tools to bring vaccine available for the entire American population by January."
Question: Who is that guy, and why did he contradict what President Trump had just said?
Then the unnamed asswipe immediately steps away from the podium and exits stage right, while the reporter is in mid-sentence.
The female reporter continues, "Mr. President, can you please clarify, why are some of you wearing a mask and some of you not wearing a mask?" (I like this reporter, she asks good direct questions.)
Trump replies "We've all been tested, I've been tested, We've all been tested, and we're quite a distance away and we're outdoors, so I told them, I gave them the option that they can wear it or not, so you can blame it on me, but I gave them the option. We can wear it or not."
So there you have it folks. President Trump said on the record that the vaccine is only "for everyone that wants to get it", and he leaves the mask-wearing up to each individual.
I suggest you save the following video before the censors at YouTube memory-hole it.
