Vice President Kamala Harris continued to blame the Trump administration’s vaccine roll-out operation after a full month in office; saying President Biden had to “start from scratch” despite Dr. Anthony Fauci’s comments that directly contradict her claims.
“You’re coming up on a month inside the office. What are you finding is harder about the pandemic? Are you finding the hole is deeper?” asked a reporter from Axios.
“The problem is there was no stockpile of vaccines. There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states to figure it out. In many ways, we’re starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year,” said the Vice President.
“When are people going to get a vaccine? Is the Biden administration starting from scratch? Or are you picking up where the Trump administration left off?” asked one reporter weeks ago.
“We certainly are not starting from scratch. There is activity going on in the distribution,” said Fauci. “It’s taking what’s going on, but amplifying it.”
