The former President of the United States (EU), Donald Trump, broke the silence on Wednesday and reiterated his position on the COVID-19 vaccine: said supports them as long as they are not mandatory, during an interview with the national public radio that he abruptly interrupted after stating again, without proof, that the last elections were “rigged.”
“I recommend giving vaccines, but I think it should be an individual choice”, declared to the national radio NPR Donald Trump, who until now used to opt for Fox News, the favorite channel of the conservatives, to express himself.
Trump, who continues to have great influence among Republican politicians, opposes that vaccination be mandatory, as defended by the government of his Democratic successor Joe Biden.
“The (vaccine) obligations are really hurting our country and penalizing our economy a lot,” stated by phone.
To a question about the 2020 election, which he lost to Biden, Donald Trump repeated, without proof, that it was a “rigged election.”
When the journalist, unlike the conservative media, told him that according to the evidence there was no electoral fraud and the elections were certified by his own Republican allies, the former president maintained his accusations.
The vote count in Arizona was fair, NPR reporter Steve Inskeep reminded him. “The number of ballots does not mean anything! (The question) is who signed the ballots, where did the ballots come from”, replied the millionaire.
So why did the Republicans certify the results? “Because they are RINOs,” he replied, using the acronym in English for “Republican In Name Only”, thereby disqualifying members of his party who do not support him.
For Donald Trump it is “an advantage” to continue talking about the 2020 elections, so that Voters Remain Concerned About Possible Election Fraud half-term to be held next fall, and in 2024.
“The only way for it not to be repeated is to solve this problem of the rigged presidential elections of 2020,” he insisted.
Pressured by the journalist, Trump continued with his criticism, and then ended the interview with a: “Thank you very much Steve, thank you”, and hung up the phone.
Last Thursday, in a speech marking the first anniversary of the attack on the Capitol on January 6, Joe Biden lashed out at “the former losing president” who “tried to prevent a peaceful transfer of power.”
