In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, 45th President Donald Trump urged young Americans to reconsider choosing to receive one of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines after a series of young men experienced myocarditis or heart attacks following their vaccination.
“Now we have to get back and the schools have to get open,” President Trump began on the subject. “Frankly, we are lucky we have the vaccine. But the vaccine on very young people is something that you’ve got to really stop,” he added. “You have to get back to running your country, I mean, I don’t see reasons, and I am a big believer in what we did with the vaccine. It’s incredible what we did. You see the results.”
“But to have every school child, where it’s 99.99 percent, they just don’t — you know, they are just not affected or affected badly,” said President Trump. “Having to receive a vaccine, I think it is something that you should start thinking about, because I think it is unnecessary.”
Recent studies suggest young people have very little chance of experiencing severe COVID-19 symptoms. National File recently reported that “A study in the British Medical Association’s peer reviewed scientific journal, The BMJ,” reveals “that ‘Children and young people have less severe acute covid-19 than adults.’ The researchers studied 629 children infected with the virus, and virtually all of them experienced mild symptoms. Only six of those children in the study died while sick with COVID-19, and all those who died ‘had profound comorbidity.’”
Meanwhile, the CDC recently announced an emergency meeting to discuss the implications of young people – primarily males – experiencing myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, after receiving the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. This investigation came after multiple reports of children having heart attacks or other heart problems after receiving the vaccines, and after the CDC officially opened an investigation into the matter – something Twitter censored National File for reporting.

President Trump has repeatedly attempted to claim the controversial vaccines and Operation Warp Speed as the most important accomplishments of his administration, even as an extremely large number of Republicans remain hesitant to receive the vaccines.
