Leave it to Donald Trump to highlight the truth about conservative vaccine hesitancy.
The Former President released a statement to his Save America website this weekend, exposing the real reason why some conservative-minded Americans are skeptical when it comes to Biden’s push to vaccinate the entire country.
Lest we forget, as the pandemic took hold, the push to create the vaccines was not a political one. At least not according to then-President Trump.
It was the left-wing operatives in mainstream media — and even the Democrats themselves — who sowed the seed of doubt and discord over the “Trump vaccine.”
Now the very same people who attempted to destroy the vaccine’s credibility have pulled a 180 degree turn, and are now the leaders in this ultra-partisan vaccine push we see today.
In his statement, Trump took aim at the Democrats and the phony 2020 presidential election they oversaw. Many are still apprehensive about the results of that election, and have been reluctant to heed the calls of vaccination coming from the same people that cheated so brazenly just last year.
The Former President’s words come after the Biden administration failed to meet its July 4th vaccination goal. Joe Biden’s aim was to vaccinate at least 70% of the nation’s adults. According to CDC data, 68% of American adults have received at least one shot and more than 160 million adults are fully vaccinated.
Operation Warp Speed was a medical miracle and only until recently have the Democrats and their propaganda wing even acknowledged it. Vaccine development happened in record time under Trump’s tutelage, leaving many Democrats skeptical of its efficacy at the time.
They’re eating their words now…
However, there’s been a bit of discrepancy between Trump’s praise of the vaccine and some of his supporters who remain skeptical. The skepticism is less of a critique on Trump’s historic accomplishments, but rather the constant propaganda-like insistence now coming from the Democrats for Americans to get jabbed.
“He’s way behind schedule, and people are refusing to take the Vaccine because they don’t trust his Administration, they don’t trust the Election results and they certainly don’t trust the Fake News, which is refusing to tell the Truth.”

However, the hesitancy to get poked is not the Republican phenomenon the Fake News media would like you to believe. According to Pew data, over 56% of those who lean Republican said they’ve already received the vaccine or plan to in the future. Conversely, 83% of Democrats revealed they have already received the vaccine or plan on getting a shot soon. The study asked questions to 10,121 respondents.
The Biden administration and the entire Democrat Party has gone from vaccine skeptics to vaccine tyrants seemingly overnight. As a result, conservatives have taken notice and have been incredibly skeptical of their efforts.
During the recent CPAC event in Dallas, a crowd cheered when speaker Alex Berenson said:
“The government was hoping that they could sort of sucker 90% of the population into getting vaccinated, and it isn’t happening.”
America First lawmakers are similarly taking notice. Firebrand GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was recently censored on Twitter for saying what the media refuses to:
Thousands of people are reporting very serious life changing vaccine side effects from taking covid vaccines.
5,946 deaths are reported on the CDC website.
Social media is censoring their stories & the media is silent.
Biden is going to homes to push shots.
Just say NO!

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson voiced his concern, saying: “I’m getting highly suspicious of what’s happening here.”
As a result of their failure, the Biden White House has now resorted to the extreme. The administration has announced a “door-to-door” approach to inform unvaccinated Americans about their wrongdoings, a move that’s garnered mass conservative backlash.
They’ve also waged war on what they call “medical misinformation” coming from social media and “right-wing media outlets.” The administration admitted they’ve kept record of any “problematic” social media posts that dare question the efficacy of the vaccine. Joe Biden has even claimed Facebook “is killing people” for allowing any semblance of vaccine skepticism on their platform.
