Corey Lewandowski: Trump Doesn’t Need to Encourage Supporters to Get Vaccine Because He “Leads by Example”

Published by

There are a number of reasons why the Republican response to COVID vaccines have been odd. But nothing has been stranger than Donald Trump‘s reaction. On one hand, the former president wants complete credit for the inoculations development. On the other, he has refused to actively encourage those who follow him to get the shot.

himself. He leads by example. I don’t know what more he can do. It’s not exactly like the Biden administration is asking the president to come out and sit down at the White House. Even if he did, I don’t know if President Trump would do that.”

When pressed, the Trump aide continued, “Howie, he’s led by example! He got the shots, he’s been inoculated, he’s told people to do it.”

Of course, Trump has spent much more time questioning the vaccine then promoting it. And the former president decided to get his shot behind closed doors without telling the public about it until much later.
