Ex-US president Trump booed by his supporters after endorsing Covid-19 vaccine
Donald Trump, the former US president was met with boos from his own supporters after he encouraged them to get vaccinated against Covid-19. The incident took place at a Trump rally in Cullman, Alabama on Saturday night.
In a video of the incident, Donald Trump can be seen telling supporters: “I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you gotta do what you gotta do, but I recommend take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good.”
This is when his own supporters can be clearly heard booing the 45th president of the United States of America.
When he realised the disapproval, Trump quickly responded by telling the booing crowd, “That’s okay, that’s alright. But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. But it is working. You do have your freedoms, you have to maintain that.”
Donald Trump fans booed the ex-president after he suggested that everyone should get the COVID-19.
Experts from both sides of the aisle have been critical of Donald Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic when he was in office.
With these remarks, Donald Trump joined the list of Republican politicians who have endorsed Covid-19 vaccines despite criticism from some of their own party colleagues.
It was revealed in May of this year that four out of 10 Republican voters did not plan to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had said in July that the vaccines need to “get in everybody’s arm as rapidly as possible”.
Warning GOP voters that anti-vaccination sentiment could push the US back to the situation it was in last year when Covid-19 cases skyrocketed, McConnell had appealed to Republican supporters: “Ignore all of those other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.”
Some Republican politicians in the US have been opposing the mandatory vaccination policy by the Biden administration as well as some Democratic and Republican-ruled states.
Breakthrough infections refer to instances of individuals contracting Covid-19 despite receiving the jab. However, experts have reiterated time and again that a vaccinated individual is less likely to develop a severe infection even if he/she contracts coronavirus.
Just last week, Twitter suspended the account of Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia once again for spreading misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines. Republican Representative Barry Moore of Alabama even falsely claimed that the vaccine was “untested”.
