Over the weekend, former President Donald Trump gave a Fox News interview where he said that his administration’s Operation Warp Speed saved millions of American lives.
“I think if we didn’t come up during the Trump administration with the vaccine, you could have 100 million people dead, just like you had in 1917,” he said. “You take the Spanish Flu, 100 million people, up to 100 million people, died. I think we’d be in that territory.”
While he was president, this country ordered 200 million vials of the Pfizer vaccine and 200 million doses of the Moderna solution.
“The vaccines turn out to be a tremendous thing,” he said. “It’s something I’m very proud of.”
But he stopped short of saying that Americans should be forced to get the jab.
“I really believe in somebody’s choice, somebody’s freedom,” he said.
