Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday recommended that Americans get vaccinated against COVID-19, and especially their voters, the group that is showing the most resistance to receiving the serum.

“I recommend it (to get vaccinated), and I recommend it to a lot of people who don’t want to get vaccinated, and a lot of those people voted for me to be honest,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News.


Trump and his wife, former first lady Melania Trump, were vaccinated against covid-19 before leaving power, although they did not make it public at the time.

In fact, the Trumps were the only ex-presidential couple that did not participate in a vaccination campaign that has been carried out by Barack and Michelle Obama (2009-2017), George W. and Laura Bush (2001-2009), Bill and Hillary Clinton (1993 -2001), and Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter (1977-1981).

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki urged Trump on Monday precisely to “raise his voice about the safety and efficacy” of the vaccine, noting that “all the other” former presidents have done so and said that the Biden government would support that gesture.

In the interview with Fox News, Trump said that the COVID-19 vaccine “is good, it is safe and it is something that works.”

“But again, we have our freedoms and we have to live with it and I support that too,” Trump said, referring to people who have decided not to get vaccinated.

A recent CBS News poll indicated that 34% of Republican voters do not intend to get vaccinated and that 24% are still considering it, while among Democrats only 10% do not want the vaccine and 20% are still undecided. .

The governor of Georgia, the state that has vaccinated the fewest people in the country, Brian Kemp, said last week that they are finding “hesitation” among the group of white Republicans when it comes to getting vaccinated.

In the United States, some 72.1 million people (21.7% of the population) have received at least one dose of the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines, of which 39 million (11.8%) are already completely inoculated.

Most of the states with a smaller number of vaccinated population are southern and traditional Republican fiefdoms such as Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee or Texas.
