Former Top Coronavirus Task Force Official Blasts Biden: We’d Have To ‘Slow Down’ To Meet His Goal

The Biden administration has told a slew of lies about the Trump administration’s work on the coronavirus and how they streamlined the process to get vaccines available to every American.

In fact, the Biden administration is now even trying to tell the outrageous lie that they had to “start from scratch,” which is beyond false.

Assistant Secretary for Health Adm. Brett Giroir, M.D., who led the Trump administration’s testing effort, has reached a breaking point and is slamming the Biden administration for continuing to falsely suggest that the Trump administration did not have a vaccine distribution plan.

During a segment on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Jeff Zients, the Biden administration’s coronavirus coordinator, made a slew of claims slandering the Trump administration.

“The bad news is there really was no plan to ramp up the supply of those vaccines,” Zients claimed. “So there wasn’t enough vaccine. There were not enough vaccinators, people to actually take the vaccine and turn it into vaccinations by putting needles into arms. And then third, there just were not enough places for people to get vaccinated. There was no comprehensive plan or strategy when we came into office.”

This did not sit well with Giroir, who took to Twitter and slammed the Biden administration for spreading false news.

“It seems that @Twitter is censoring my tweets because I am calling out the continuing lies on @60Minutes that Trump had no vaccine plan,” Giroir responded on Twitter. “Fact is, current supply and ramp-up are 99% due to Trump’s #OperationWarpSpeed, including the pharmacy and #healthcenter roll-outs.”

“And ‘Trump’s mess and non-existent’ vaccine plan had already achieved a rate of #COVIDVaccination to achieve #Biden goal of 100 million doses in 100 days when Biden inaugurated,” Giroir continued. “I[n] fact, #OperationWarpSpeed would have had to slow down to meet that new goal!”

Giroir’s remarks are factually supported by Bloomberg News, which reported in January that the Trump administration had gone over a million shots a day by the end of his administration.

Just two days after Biden took office, Bloomberg News reported that the U.S. was almost already on track to meet Biden’s goal of 100 million vaccinations in 100 days.

The report said:

In the week Biden was sworn in as president, nearly 983,000 shots a day were administered on average over the seven days ending Friday, according to data from Bloomberg’s Vaccine Tracker. The most recent three days topped a million doses. …

Pressed on the 100-million-dose goal on Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki explained the math behind the administration’s thinking. She said that under Trump, 17 million doses had been administered in the first 38 days, for an average rate of less than 500,000 a day, and Biden’s team hoped to double that.

Bloomberg’s data show that the rate has increased substantially since the first weeks of the rollout. A more ambitious plan would be to double the current rate of vaccinations—not the average rate during the early phase of vaccine distribution. That’s what some Republicans have called for.

This is just another scathing example of the Biden administration lying about Trump and the mainstream media — aside from a few outlets — allowing him to get away with it.
