Donald Trump Gets Booed After Telling Crowd He Got A Booster Coronavirus Vaccine
Donald Trump has faced backlash from some of his supporters after revealing he got a booster shot against the coronavirus.
People all around the world have been urged to get a third jab of the Covid-19 vaccine to give their bodies an added dose of immunity.
With parts of the globe heading into winter and the looming threat of the Omicron variant, experts are hoping the third shot will be key in staving off another wave of infections.
Trump explained during a sit down with former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly that he got his third jab and it didn't go down well with some people in the crowd.
He made the revelation during the final stop of 'The History Tour' and a section of the live audience started booing him.
The former US President hit back at the discontent people and said 'don't, don't, don't' in a bid to calm them down.
He also insisted it was only a 'tiny group' who booed him.
Trump took credit for helping get the vaccines for Americans in the first place.
"Look, we did something that was historic. We saved tens of millions of lives worldwide. We together, all of us...not me, we...we got a vaccine done, three vaccines done, and tremendous therapeutics" he said to the crowd before they booed him.
"This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now.
"Take credit for it. Take credit for it...Don't let them take it away. Don't take it away from ourselves."
The Sydney Morning Herald notes how the President and former First Lady Melania Trump got their first jab in private.
Joe and Jill Biden, Kamala Harris and even former Vice President Mike Pence all received their doses in public, some with live cameras rolling in an attempt to persuade the public into getting the jab.
However, many staunch Republicans and Trump loyalists discredited the vaccine and the SMH says Trump's private vaccination was an attempt not to lose voters ahead of the 2020 US Election.
The former President also seemed skeptical about getting a booster jab earlier this year.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal in September, Trump said: "I feel like I'm in good shape from that standpoint. I'll look at stuff later on. I'm not against it, but it's probably not for me."
