Trump arrests Candace Owens on vaccines: VIDEO

Former President Donald Trump has shut down conservative media personality Candace Owens after trying to pretend COVID-19 vaccines don’t work, blowing viewers in the process.

Trump took credit for the “incredible speed” with which COVID-19 vaccines were developed during her tenure in the White House, but corrected Owens when she said “more people have died from COVID this year ”, an assertion that is misleading.

You can see what happened in the video below.

Trump began by welcoming the nationwide rollout of the vaccine, telling Owens:

“I invented a vaccine, with three vaccines. All of them are very, very good. I found three in less than nine months. It was to take five to twelve years.

Owens responded that “more people have died from COVID this year” even though “more people have taken the vaccine this year,” which is misleading.

While the United States has certainly lost more lives to COVID-19 this year than last year, the higher death toll has been attributed vaccination rates lower than needed in addition to relaxation of daily precautions to curb the spread of the virus. The increase in the highly contagious Delta variant has also contributed to higher death rates, largely among the unvaccinated population.

This is where Trump pushed back, insisting that vaccines work:

“” Oh no, vaccines work, but some people aren’t the ones. The ones who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones who don’t take the vaccine. “

“But it’s still their choice. And if you take the vaccine, you’re protected. Look, the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you get it, it’s a very minor form. People don’t die. when they take the vaccine.

Trump is right.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has long denied claims that natural immunity is more beneficial than the vaccine.

Indeed, a study published in August showed that “unvaccinated individuals are more than twice as likely to be re-infected with COVID-19 as those who were fully vaccinated after initially contracting the virus.”

He also pointed out that COVID-19 vaccines “offer better protection than natural immunity alone and that vaccines, even after a previous infection, help prevent re-infections.”

The agency continues to stress the importance of getting vaccinated as the best line of defense against COVID-19.

“COVID-19 vaccines remain safe and effective. They prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death.

Additionally, even among the rare cases of COVID-19 among fully or partially vaccinated vaccines, people are more likely to have milder and shorter illness than those who are not vaccinated. The CDC continues to recommend to everyone 12 years of age and over to get the COVID-19 vaccine. “

Trump’s statements marked a significant departure from his previous rhetoric, sending waves throughout the online community.

While some have suggested his statements might just change the minds of his staunchest supporters, others have decried his remarks as being too little too late after nearly two years of downplaying the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. .

Trump recently revealed that he had received his recall, although he always tried to follow the line with his base, telling Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that he was still very much against the vaccine and mask warrants. His comments drew some mockery from the public again.

Previously, Trump had claimed that the booster shots were nothing more than a “money-making operation” and criticized vaccine makers Pfizer and Moderna, saying “you can see the dollar signs in their eyes.”

Trump has in the past asserted that his administration deserves all the credit for the development and distribution of vaccines.

During his tenure, Trump announced Operation Warp Speed, the partnership initiated by the federal government to facilitate and accelerate the development, manufacture and distribution of Covid-19 vaccines and medical treatments.

However, Pfizer did not recognize Operation Warp Speed. This said he did not work with the Trump administration to develop its Covid-19 vaccine.

Moderna, on the other hand, has confirmed he received federal government funding to develop his vaccine.
