Trump Rips Biden Admin’s Pause of Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccine: A ‘Terrible Disservice’

Former President Donald Trump is taking aim at the Biden administration after news broke that the U.S. is recommending a pause on Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Following reporting of six women developing rare blood clots, U.S. federal health agencies recommended the pause of the single-dose vaccine on Tuesday.

The White House responded to the recommendation made “out of an abundance of caution,” saying in a statement from Jeff Zients, “This announcement will not have a significant impact on our vaccination plan.” Zients is the White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine.

However, Trump did not stay silent on the topic, as he rebuked the Biden administration.

He wrote in a statement, “The Biden Administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a ‘pause’ in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The results of this vaccine have been extraordinary but now it’s reputation will be permanently challenged.”

The former president continued:

“The people who have already taken the vaccine will be up in arms, and perhaps all of this was done for politics or perhaps it’s the FDA’s love for Pfizer. The FDA, especially with long time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled. They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it.”

Trump then repeated a previous claim that Pfizer “announced the vaccine approval two days after the 2020 Presidential Election” because “they didn’t like me very much.”

“Do your testing, clean up the record, and get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back online quickly,” he added.

As The Associated Press reports, John Burkhardt, senior vice president of drug safety research and development at Pfizer, previously said “that the timing of the company’s vaccine announcement was not related in any way to the presidential election and was made as soon as the efficacy data was ready.” The CEO of Pfizer also smacked down claims the timing was political.

There have been over 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered in the U.S., as of April 12. This is significantly less than the 180 million doses administered of the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines combined.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are expected to provide details in their briefing later Tuesday, according to Zients.

“We are working now with our state and federal partners to get anyone scheduled for a J&J vaccine quickly rescheduled for a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine,” Zients also said.

  1. I read where COVID19 makes you have blood clots so what’s J&J vaccine breakdown?

  2. Keep politics and profits out of this and get the WORLD vaccinated especially the weak, the sick and the old.it will save lives and free up the hospital space we need. The rich countries has a moral duty to help the rest of the world Do something from your heaet instead of worrying about your pocker

  3. It has not had extraordinary results. They have had a lot of issues the last week and now into this week. And if they juat continued on without a pause then it would be viewed as sweeping the issues under the rug. That is ALREADY the consensus of folks unwilling to get a vaccine – not just J&J vaccine.

    Don’t get me wrong, i want the J&J vaccine. But if there’s concerns, they should be reviewed.

  4. Who gives two sh!ts what that old geezer think. He had his time the f*cked up most everything he touched. Go to bed old man!

    1. Justme – Perhaps you’ve had your head up your ass for the past 3 months. Mad King Biden the Usurper and Divider has and continues to screw up every aspect of America, from crippling our energy dominance, to eliminating good paying jobs by the tens of thousands, to allowing illegals flooding our Southern border, to changing how Congress votes, to infringing on our rights, to attempting to take over the Supreme Court. The Mad King does love to take credit for President Trump’s creating of the vaccine and its distribution. Now, he’s trying to take credit for Trump’s plan to bring home the Afghanistan troops, but I’m sure the Mad King will fund and arm the resurgence of the Taliban, like the Obamanation did with ISIS. He’s also going to send US jobs to Central America by sending Harris to those countries to arrange it and over taxing Corporations so they will look for cheap labor there.

      President Trump did just the opposite. He was instrumental in bringing jobs back to America, getting Apple to build a $1.5 Billion facility in the US. Keeping jobs in IN. HE got the Covid19 vaccine rolling as a top priority and arranged for the distribution. He protected Constitutional rights, prevented immigration from 7 terrorist countries, got the pipelines up and running protecting the environment and making the US independent of OPEC. He put China in it’s place and started to correct the enormous trade deficit we have that was adding over $600 Billion to the Debt every year. He removed the US from the disastrous Paris accord where we were supposed to restrict our energy use while countries like China could increase their use of Coal and oil, building thousands of new fossil fuel plants, buying our coal and oil, buying our shut down plants. He put America first.

      Your Mad King has reversed all that and put America last again.

  5. Why doesn’t Trump just shut his yap??? He’s not President anymore! Further,- nothing but lies and deceit have spewed from his mouth in the past, ( and you can Fact-Check…). He did his country a great dis-service when he ran the show, why is he starting to open his gob now?? Guess he’s running out of venues to prate upon….

    1. why don’t you shut you’re old yap??? Biden has told more lies in his first 2 days than Trump did in his whole 4 year term. Trump did more for this country than any living president before him and this old brain dead corrupt dummy in there now will destroy everything that makes this country good. He will be back to undo the stupidity he is doing now, or someone just like him and stop this country from going down the tubes. Silly people are in charge now, people like yourself!!

      1. Just a suggestion. If you are going to call anyone “old brain dead corrupt dummy” at least get the basic grammar correct. “you’re” is the contraction of you are. “why don’t you shut you’re old yap” makes no sense as much sense as claiming “Biden told more lies in his first 2 days than Trump did in his whole 4 year term”–You wish to admit believing Biden told more than 30,573 lies in 48 hours???

        My favorite portion of your post I saved for last. “He will be back to undo the stupidity he is doing now, or someone just like him and stop this country from going down the tubes.” At least you recognize Trump’s “stupidity” did not end at noon on Jan 20, 2021.

      2. Tim…… You’re a liar just like Trump. He lost so get over it. The silliest thing I have ever witnessed was a reality tv star being elected POTUS! A cheating lying scumbag who only cares about himself, with his comb over and fake tan. Hysterical but sad. The American people spoke and they were loud and clear.

    2. Chris – The lies you speak of were the product of the Democrat State Media. You sit there watching the TV, no realizing that you’re absorbing propaganda. Fact check? By whom, the Democrat State Media. They lied about Trump for the last 5 years. They supported every failed attempt to defeat him in 2016 by the Cheating Democrats. They supported every lie told during two fake Impeachments based on fabricated information created by the Democrats which had no basis in fact at all. The Democrat State Media ignored the riots that went on for months in Portland and Seattle that resulted in Millions in damage to Federal buildings and police departments, hundreds of police officers injured, the use of commercial lasers to blind police, calling the incidents ‘peaceful’ protests. Months of destruction!! When President Trump sent Federal officers in to quell the riots, the Democrat in the cities and Congress, with the Democrat State Media, called him a dictator. When the riots occurred in Kenosha, WI, burning down buildings and looting malls, Democrat State Media again called the incidents ‘peaceful’ protests, The Biden Campaign, along with other Democrats bailed out the rioters so they could riot and destroy more.

      When Conservatives protested in the capitol on one day, when Antifa and the BoweL Movement infiltrated the protests and broke into the Capitol building, despite Trump supporters telling them to stop, the Democrat State Media repeated, repeated, repeated that it was an insurrection, to get the most condemnation they could.

      The Democrat State Media has spent so much time justifying the corrupt election and the unbelievable number of votes for the Mad King during the middle of the night, when the polls were closed and the counting was reportedly stopped until morning. The will not entertain the thought that there was cheating, even as now some states are quietly throwing out votes from the dead. They will repeat, repeat, repeat that the election was fair.

      The lies that have occurred in the past have been from the Democrats and their State Media. You have been indoctrinated and propagandized.
