Former President Donald Trump issued a statement celebrating the Supreme Court’s recent shutdown of Joe Biden’s unconstitutional OSHA Covid jab mandates despite being a staunch advocate for the injections, an approach widely criticized by some in his voter base.
Former President Donald Trump issued a statement in celebration of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that Joe Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandates were unconstitutional.
“The Supreme Court has spoken, confirming what we all knew: Biden’s disastrous mandates are unconstitutional. Biden promised to shut down the virus, not the economy but he has failed miserably on both—and mandates would have further destroyed the economy,” wrote the former President in a statement released by his Save America PAC.
“We are proud of the Supreme Court for not backing down. No mandates!”
Despite President Trump’s support for the latest Biden regime disastrous policy shutdown, he has strongly and repeatedly advocated for people to be injected with the COVID-19 vaccines. The pro-vaccine stance taken by President Trump has been met with negative reactions by some in his voter base on numerous occasions.
The MAGA crowd’s staunch disapproval of the COVID-19 vaccines could perhaps be due to the fact that the notion of mass vaccination was a key policy serving as a predominant component of Joe Biden‘s presidential campaign, also receiving support from unpopular figures such as Anthony Fauci, billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and the World Economic Forum.
At President Trump’s August “Save America” rally in Alabama last year, the former President was met with boos from his crowd of supporters after he recommended that they take the COVID-19 vaccine injections, which do not prevent individuals from catching or spreading the virus.
“And you know what? I believe totally in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do But, I recommend: take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines,” said President Trump followed by loud boos from the crowd.
“You got, no, that’s okay, that’s alright. You got your freedoms, but I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. Okay? I’ll call up Alabama and say ‘hey, you know what?’ But it is working. But uh, you do have your freedoms. You have to keep, you have to maintain that. You have to maintain that, and you gotta get your kids back to school.”

During an appearance with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in December, President Trump was booed by the audience after he bragged about receiving a COVID vaccine “booster” shot.
After he was booed, President Trump reportedly called O’Reilly to express how hurt and frustrated he was by the situation.
O’Reilly ultimately told President Trump to keep pushing the vaccines.

Trump waved his hands and shouted “Don’t, don’t, don’t,” and also claimed a “hundred million people” were saved because he supported the development of COVID vaccines – a claim he also repeated during an interview with conservative pundit Candace Owens a few days later.
“I came up with a vaccine, with three vaccines,” Trump told Owens. “All are very, very good. Came up with three of them in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.”
Owens responded, explaining that more people died from COVID-19 in 2020, prior to the hundreds of millions of people getting vaccinated, than have in 2021.
“More people have taken the vaccine this year, so people are questioning how-” Candace said, with Trump cutting her off to add, “Oh no, the vaccines work, but some people aren’t the ones.”
“The ones who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that 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 do get it, it’s a very minor form,” Trump continued. “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine.”
