But he's telling YOU - a Trump supporter directly - to get the vaccine because it's safe and it works - yet you and other Trump supporters doubt him, and say that he's spreading dangerous information....why is that?

Trump is not spreading misinformation, he's giving his opinion, which he is untitled to.

If you believe the vaccine is unsafe, and he is saying it is safe and recommends it, then in your view he's spreading dangerous information....

Both Trump and I are mature adults, we give our opinions but we don't force or demand that others comply with them.

Trump says it's safe and effective and recommends his supporters get vaccinated - the same thing that the Biden administration and Dr Fauci say. Yet you and other Trump supporters insult Dr Fauci and the administration and accuse them of peddling dangerous health information.

Hypocrisy?

We're supposed to be at herd immunity, but the herd is still catching and spreading Covid.

Polio's gone, chicken pox is and measles are under control, those vaccines worked.

Are these vaccines working?

If enough people take them yes they'll work. That is how vaccines work, how long did it take to achieve the results you mentioned first?

What would REALLY move the needle would be

proof of vaccination required in order to vote.

It's being considered and it's a comin.

Well the pubs like to throw up all sorts of obstacles to prevent those deemed not in their voter base from voting, so why can't the dems? hohoho.

So, why do you refuse his recommendation?

I applaud Trump in only making a recommendation and not forcing anybody against their will nor disparaging anyone who disagrees with him.

Trump is an adult, if somebody says, no thank you Mr. Trump, I don't want that pharmaceutical product, Mr. Trump won't force the issue.

An adult? Sure, OK. But if he is an adult, why are you not following his recommendation? Don't believe him when he says the vaccine is safe?

To each his own, Trump understands that.

This Trump supporter disagrees....now that her father and brother are dead....

Four days of dodging and no answer - maybe today?

"I would recommend it," Mr Trump said during an interview on Fox News Primetime on Tuesday. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly." *He added: "It's a great vaccine, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works."

Trump supporters, read the highlighted sentence above...Donald Trump, your hero, the person you voted for, is telling you directly to get vaccinated...and that it is safe....

So, why do you refuse his recommendation? Is he lying to you when he says the vaccine is "safe and something that works"? Is he spreading dangerous disinformation and putting you and his supporters health at risk?

proof of vaccination required in order to vote.

Vote at the voting facility with crowds of people? Need a vaccine passport for that? That makes sense. Don't like it then request a mail ballot. It's killing three birds with one stone for Trump people. They can vote, stay vaccine free, and not miss any Tucker.

What would REALLY move the needle would be if the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and NASCAR announced that in addition to a ticket, proof of vaccination is required for admittance.

It may sound cruel, but choosing to not be vaccinated is survival of the fittest at work.

Congratulations to President Biden for his leadership in achieving this target.

He may have missed July 4th by a month but with most of the GOP and entire news channels like Fox and NEWSMAX and OAN bleating anti-vaccine propaganda 24/7 ... it's still a great achievement.

Because you have to continue taking care of yourself until you reach herd immunity, and the virus becomes endemic. 70% is only the minimum but everyone needs to be vaccinated

Polio and other diseases have made a comeback in some places because anti-vaccine loser clowns irresponsibly stopped vaccinating their children.

Like it or not ALL VACCINES WORK, follow the science and stop living in the 18th century..

Seriously good news. If the US can turn things around like this, so can the rest of us.

Looks like the “less cognitively inclined “ are starting to get the hint. No vaccine, now admittance, no service, no job.

Good. When get get close to 100% COVID will be nothing more than a minor nuisance on society with miniscule numbers of deaths, no masks, and no lockdowns.
