Trump ‘didn’t do his job’ on vaccine rollout, says Biden
President Biden visited the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, where he said Covid-19 vaccines would not be available to all Americans until late summer due to poor planning for his predecessor.
“It‘s no secret that the immunization program was in much worse shape than my team and I had anticipated. We felt and were told that we had a lot more resources than when we came to power. While scientists have done their job of discovering vaccines in record time, my predecessor – be very blunt about this – did not do his job in preparing for the enormous challenge of vaccinating hundreds of millions of people. Americans. When I became president three weeks ago, America had no plan to vaccinate most of the country. It was a big mess that will take time to fix, to be honest with you. And we thought and we were led to believe that there was a lot more vaccine available than there was. And when I said in the first hundred days, I guaranteed, I promised that we would get a hundred million shots in people’s arms, everybody said, ‘You can’t do that. It’s incredible. Now I get, “Why can’t you get more? To get to the place where these guys always legitimately ask me is when will we have enough vaccines to have over 300 million people? We’re going to be in a position where it’s going to be, it won’t be at the end of summer.
