Pence: If the Swine Flu Was as Lethal as Covid, We Would’ve Lost 2 Million Americans When Joe Biden Was Vice-President

‘They left an empty and hollow plan’


PENCE: "You know, the reality is, when you talk about failure in this administration, we actually do know what failure looks like in a pandemic. It was 2009, the swine flu arrived in the United States. Thankfully, it ended up not being as lethal as the Coronavirus, but before the end of the year, when Joe Biden was vice president of the United States, not 7.5 million people contracted the swine flu, 60 million Americans contracted the swine flu. If the swine flu had been as lethal as the Coronavirus, in 2009, when Joe Biden was vice president, we would have lost 2 million American lives. His own Chief of Staff Ron Klain would say last year that it was pure luck that they did 'Everything possible wrong.' And we learned from that.”
