Over 71 million American voted for President Trump in the 2020 election, which tells me that half the country never bought the media hysteria on the COVID-19 pandemic. The health experts had models of over 2.2 million Americans dying from COVID-19. Just 675,000 Americans died from the 1918 flu pandemic, yet the media never blamed President Wilson for those deaths. After all, he was a Democrat. Fast-forward to 2020, when just around 239,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, and Mr. Trump is getting the blame because he’s not implementing any foolish national mask mandate. The majority of Americans who died from COVID-19 were in Democrat-run states. Why isn’t the biased media blaming those states’ governors? Or China, for that matter?

In the final presidential debate, Mr. Trump said a vaccine was coming — and the media and others said he was lying, that a vaccine wouldn’t be ready until mid-2021. Here we are in November, with a vaccine that is 90% effective against COVID-19. Pfizer didn’t put forward the good news weeks ago, probably because it didn’t want to end Joe Biden’s campaign, which was all about the pandemic. But Biden supporters should know and remember that it was under Mr. Trump that the vaccine was created.

We should give Mr. Trump and his administration credit for unleashing the fastest vaccine ever. Operation Warp Speed unleashed the private sector by cutting the red tape. Pfizer should want to disassociate itself from politics in the future.
