Trump staff told CNBC on Monday that former President Donald Trump and former first lady Melania Trump received coronavirus vaccination at the White House in January.
Trump left office on January 20, when he had not announced that he and the first lady had been vaccinated.
It is unclear what vaccine the president and first lady vaccinated. By then, the US Food and Drug Administration has approved the emergency use of the two vaccines.
The person said: “President Trump and the first lady received vaccinations at the White House in January.”
The New York Times first reported that the former president and first lady had been vaccinated during their tenure.
Trump encouraged “everyone” to be vaccinated in a speech at the annual Conservative Federation CPAC on Sunday.
Trump said in a rare post-president appearance: “We have taken care of a lot of people.” “We have taken care of [President] Joe Biden, because he was shot, he got the vaccine… So everyone, go shoot you.
According to Axios, according to a recent Civiqs poll, white Republicans are more likely to be uncertain or resistant to the Covid vaccine than other populations in the United States.
