Trump Voter to Trump on Covid Response: Why Did You Throw People Like Me Under the Bus?
TUBIANA: "I voted for you in 2016, I'm conservative, pro-life and diabetic. I’ve had to dodge people who don’t care about social distancing and wearing face masks. I thought you were doing a good job with a pandemic response until about May 1st. Then you took your foot off the gas pedal. Why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus?"
TRUMP: "Well, we really didn’t, Paul. We’ve worked very hard on the pandemic. We’ve worked very hard, it came from China, they should have never let it happen. And if you look at what we’ve done with ventilators and now, frankly, with vaccines, we're very close to having a vaccine. If you want to know the truth, the previous administration would’ve taken perhaps years to have a vaccine because of the FDA and all the approvals, and we're within weeks of getting it. You know, it could be three weeks, four weeks, but we think we have it.”
