President Joe Biden delivered remarks on Wednesday as he announced he tested negative for COVID-19. During his speech, he said this about President Donald J. Trump:
“Here’s the bottom line: when my predecessor got COVID, he had to get helicoptered to Walter Reed Medical Center. He was severely ill. Thankfully, he recovered. When I got COVID, I worked from upstairs of the White House — in the offices upstairs — and — for the — that five-day period.
“The difference is vaccinations, of course, but also three new tools free to all and widely available. You don’t need to be President to get these tools used for your defense. In fact, the same booster shots, the same at-home test, the same treatment that I got is available to you.”
What Biden failed to acknowledge during his remarks was the fact the vaccine was developed under President Trump’s leadership.
