AP FACT CHECK: Biden overestimates his record on COVID vaccine | national news


The Trump administration’s vaccination plan fell short of its targets and suffered immediate disarray. By inauguration day, less than half of the 36 million doses distributed to states by the federal government had been administered.

Even so, the plan set the stage for an acceleration in vaccinations that didn’t happen just because Biden “went out and bought everything I could do.”

BIDEN, asked why he had not gone to the US-Mexico border as president: “I’ve been there before and I haven’t, I mean I know that. Guess I should get off, but the point is, I didn’t have a lot of time to get off. I have spent time looking at the $ 900 billion in damage caused by hurricanes, floods and weather conditions and traveling the world. but I plan – now my wife Jill is down. She’s been on both sides of the river.

THE FACTS: Yes, Jill Biden has been to the border but not, as he suggests, like the eyes and ears of a crisis-ridden president.

She was not the first lady and he was not the president when she traveled to Brownsville, Texas in December 2019 and traveled to Matamoros, Mexico to distribute Christmas meals and toys for the families of asylum seekers and testify to their living conditions.
