Former President Trump blasted the Food and Drug Administration, claiming he had to “push” them during his term. Trump appeared on Hannity Tuesday to talk about, as he put it, his “great achievement” that was the COVID-19 vaccine.

“As far as a vaccine, I am very proud of it,” Trump said. “I pushed the FDA like they have never been pushed.” First, Dr. Anthony Fauci told Trump it would initially take three to five years to release a vaccine. Instead, it took nine months. Now, over 70% of Americans have received at lease one shot.

“I consider it a great achievement,” Trump said. “I would love people to take the vaccine. In the meantime, wear your mask if you want.” Meanwhile, the FDA also continues to encourage Americans to get the vaccine.

Trump himself got the vaccine during his term as president. At the time, the White House didn’t announce which vaccine he had. He, along with then First Lady Melania received their shots after contracting the virus.
