Even in post-presidency, Trump is revealing the truth about establishment bureaucrats whose priorities lie in corporate nepotism rather than promoting the best interests of Americans.
In his latest statement from the Office of the Former President, Trump slammed the FDA and CDC for their Tuesday statement recommending a “pause” in administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after it caused six rare cases of severe blood clots roughly one week after the individuals received the vaccine.
Denying that the government agencies’ recommendation has anything to do with the rare adverse reactions, Trump argued it is truly motivated by the “FDA’s love for Pfizer” or otherwise political motivations, also noting that it was the “FDA working with Pfizer” who waited to grant emergency approval for the vaccine until after the 2020 general election.
To promote Pfizer, the FDA and CDC are intentionally attempting to hurt Johnson & Johnson by fear mongering the public, Trump says.

Statement By Donald J. Trump, 45th President Of The United States Of America
“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 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. They’ll do things like this to make themselves look important. Remember, it was the FDA working with Pfizer, who announced the vaccine approval two days after the 2020 Presidential Election.
They didn’t like me very much because I pushed them extremely hard. But if I didn’t, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for 3-5 years, or maybe not at all. It takes them years to act! Do your testing, clean up the record, and get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back online quickly. The only way we defeat the China Virus is with our great vaccines!”
