White House press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled on whether or not President Biden encouraged vaccine hesitancy with comments he made last year cautioning he did not "trust" former President Donald Trump as his administration worked to roll out vaccines.
"Has there been any thought given, looking back, to the possibility that [Biden] may have created some vaccine hesitancy? When last year, around this time, the previous administration was rushing to get a vaccine authorized, and how the president said, ‘I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don't trust Donald Trump,’" Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked Psaki during the press briefing Wednesday.
"Well, I think it's safe to say he still doesn't trust Donald Trump so that hasn't changed. But he does trust scientists, he does trust data experts, And he does trust the people leading the CDC, the FDA, which is the gold standard of approval for vaccines," Psaki responded. budget says those savings will be “substantial.”
