The Biden administration continues to lie about coronavirus vaccines by denying President Trump the credit for developing and distributing those vaccines. On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lied to reporters and said the U.S. did not have enough vaccines on January 20.
“There’s no question and all data points to the fact that there were not enough of any of those things when he took office,” Psaki claimed. “We are open-eyed about the challenge we continue to live under.”
Psaki made these claims despite reports that found Biden’s officials lost 20 million doses of the vaccines out of the 50 million doses sent out under President Trump.
“We also put up billions and billions of dollars, $10 billion, to produce the vaccines before we knew they were going to work,” Trump stated during his CPAC 2021 speech. “It was called a calculated bet or a calculated risk. We took a risk because if we didn’t do that, you still wouldn’t have the vaccines. Never forget that we did it. Never let them take the credit because they don’t deserve the credit.”
Psaki’s remarks also suggested Democrats intend to keep COVID lockdowns in place for as long as they can while they continue to downplay the vaccinations and declining infection rates.
