Those governors were so terrible that they are being run out of office.
But how does Trump's record hold up?
The Wash. Post attacked Trump, 6 weeks before the election:
Trump says, without evidence, every American will get coronavirus vaccine by April https://t.co/PdkoQyaagX — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) September 18, 2020We now know that Trump was telling the truth, and the FDA, CDC, and vaccine companies conspired to conceal the trial data until after the election.
President Trump said Friday that every American would have access to a coronavirus vaccine by April, contradicting his own statement of two days earlier and sowing deeper confusion about the process and timing of vaccine approval and distribution.
When Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said earlier in the week that the general public was unlikely to get access to a vaccine until the second and third quarters of 2021, echoing other scientific leaders in the administration, Trump said he’d misspoken.
“I think he made a mistake with that statement,” Trump said Wednesday. “When he said it, I believe he was confused. I’m just telling you we’re ready to go.”
Trump then said a vaccine would be ready in weeks and swiftly made available, despite the fact that no one knows yet when sufficient data will be collected from clinical trials to show that one of the vaccines in late-stage trials is effective or safe.
And his promise of universal vaccination by April was right on target:
President Joe Biden said Tuesday that all adults in the U.S. should be eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by April 19 … The new deadline to expand eligibility — which is two weeks earlier than Biden had previously targeted — should not be difficult to meet since several states have already begun administering the vaccine to anyone over 16 who wants it.This Wash. Post lie probably cost Trump the election. There were a fair number of centrist voters who only voted against Trump because of the coronavirus.
Of there were many other times Trump was accused of lying, when he was actually telling the truth. The Lincoln Project just put out of video titled "Trump's Big Lie", where Trump predicts that the only way he will lose the election is thru mail-in votes. And that is exactly what happened. Trump won the votes of those who actually voted according to pre-existing rules. Biden's extremely narrow margin was based on changing the rules to allow unauthenticated early mail-in votes.
