Donald Trump 'Hopes Everyone Remembers' He Brought The Coronavirus Vaccine To Life

Donald Trump has issued a statement taking credit for the vaccine rollout across the US.

In a mildly sad fashion, the former President 'hopes everyone remembers' him when they get their jab.

He sent out a message to his followers, saying: "I hope everyone remembers when they're getting the Covid-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) vaccine, that if I wasn't president, you wouldn't be getting that beautiful 'shot' for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn't be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers."

While he would love to credit for helping get the vaccine out as quickly as possible through his Administration's Operation Warp Speed, his successor said there was a lot of work to do when he came into office.

Joe Biden claims there was no roadmap whatsoever about how to distribute the vaccine.

Speaking at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland last month, the US President: "While scientists did their job in discovering vaccines in record time, my predecessor - I'll be very blunt about it - did not do his job in getting ready for the massive challenge of vaccinating hundreds of millions.

"We're not going to have everything fixed for a while, but we're going to fix it."

Before he took office, Biden lambasted Trump for not ordering enough vaccines to keep up with supply - which, understandably, was very high.

More than half a million people have died from coronavirus in the US and more than 29.4 million Americans have been infected with the virus.

Biden committed to 100 million vaccines within the first 100 days.

He had to address the nation to encourage everyone to get to a vaccination as quickly as possible.

"We all know there's some hesitancy about taking this vaccine," Biden said. "We all know there's a history in this country of having subjected certain communities to terrible medical abuses in the past.

"But if there's one message to cut through to everyone in this country, it's this: The vaccines are safe. Please, for yourself, your family, your community, this country, take the vaccine when it's your turn and available. That's how to beat this pandemic."

A little more than 18 per cent of America has been vaccinated against the coronavirus so far, with 9.6 per cent receiving both doses.
