One of the key factors in bringing the COVID panic to an end has been the quick rollout of three vaccines. President Donald Trump moved heaven and earth, cutting through red tape and government roadblocks, to ensure private labs could develop a life-saving COVID inoculation.
The country had vaccinated millions of people before Joe Biden entered office. Of course, Biden’s pathetic administration complicated efforts, losing track of millions of doses and slowing down the process.
Despite his incompetence, around 100 million Americans have been vaccinated. The plan was to ensure that by the Summer, everyone who wanted a jab could be jabbed.
But recently, Biden’s CDC “paused” the use of one of the vaccines, over reports that a small number of people developed blood clots. The cases were significantly few and far between, but the cowardly bureaucrats that now run the CDC have made it even harder for Americans to acquire a vaccine.
So, President Trump is blasting Biden.
Former President Donald Trump condemned President Joe Biden’s administration for pausing the delivery of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine Tuesday.
“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 wrote in a statement sent to reporters…
The former president floated a theory that the decision was done for political reasons or due to “the FDA’s love for Pfizer.”
“The FDA, especially with long-time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled,” he wrote. “They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it.” [Source: Breitbart]
It was unusual for the CDC and FDA to pause the use of a vaccine that has been thoroughly tested and approved. The cases of blood clots are “extremely rare,” with only a handful of people—out of millions—who have been vaccinated. Why should the government halt its use, when so many want to be jabbed?
It just points to the ongoing cowardice of our leaders that we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic. Government officials have pushed idiotic measures since last year, out of fear of being attacked by the media. They have implemented knee-jerk reactions, instead of standing by the best decisions. The CDC and FDA are simply following in the footsteps of the EU, who paused vaccines over similar unfounded fears.
Is this why we bother to elect these people, because they are driven by fear and cowardice? Does America deserve an administration that can’t stand by its principles, but runs and hides whenever it hits a challenge?
All this halt will do is delay people from getting vaccinated, who would have otherwise been fine. And it could prolong the fear and paranoia many have felt for over a year due to this virus.
Perhaps that’s why they did it?
