LIVE: Quick action Trump would have taken to put an end to the COVID pandemic.
On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s “The View,” guest co-host Gretchen Carlson suggested the epidemic would be finished by now if former President Donald Trump marketed the COVID vaccination to his fans. According to Carlson, “As we all know, the problem with this vaccination is that it has been politicized. People didn’t always politicize the polio vaccination, and they still don’t now.”
“They didn’t have Facebook, for example, or Fox News to teach people misinformation every day,” remarked co-host Joy Behar. “Well, I completely agree with you,” Carlson answered.
“I don’t think it will work with folks who support Trump,” Carlson said of utilizing fear tactics in advertising to urge vaccination. Listen, under his government, the vaccine is released, but it is not promoted to those who follow him, and that is where we are now. We politicized everything, which I believe is a disgrace.”
“They snuck to grab it,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg added. The other thing is that they’ve all been vaccinated.” “They all got it,” Sunny Hostin, co-host, concurred. “But didn’t promote it,” Carlson added. She went on to say, “In the end, if Trump had just ordered people to get the vaccination, the epidemic would have been over.
