McEnany: Biden’s denial of Trump’s COVID vaccine progress is ‘revisionist history’

Kayleigh McEnany rips Biden over ‘unprecedented lack of transparency’

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany reacts to President Biden’s address to the nation and how he has not yet held a formal press conference.

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany joined FOX Business’ “Mornings with Maria” and provided insight into President Biden’s first public address to the American people on Thursday night arguing that the president's denial of the Trump administration's progress on coronavirus vaccines is "engaging in revisionist history."

KAYLEIGH MCENANY SAYS BIDEN AVOIDING PRESS QUESTIONS BECAUSE HIS STAFF HAS NO ‘FAITH’ IN HIM

KAYLEIGH MCENANY: “It was extraordinary, the denial of all that the previous administration had done before him. You even have ABC News, The New York Times and this morning The Washington Post noting even that the Johnson & Johnson and Merck breakthrough began under President Trump's administration. Three vaccines, not one, three vaccines in record time and manufacturing those vaccines at an industrial scale beforehand was a novel approach. But all of that denied by Biden, though acknowledged by the mainstream media, the liberal media, rather. It's really interesting to watch.

[The China] travel ban, the one that Joe Biden dubbed ‘xenophobic,’ and keep in mind, those early actions of the Trump administration came as the World Health Organization was carrying China's water, lying about this having human-to-human transmission between people, slow walking that information to the world. And you have Joe Biden, who's rejoining that organization, the very one that misled America and misled the world. But nevertheless, President Trump was taking action — the temporary shutdown. Joe Biden was still holding a rally in March. So he's really engaging in revisionist history. But the American people are smart enough to see that."

Joe Biden went on [to say] that there were 8 million seniors vaccinated, it went to 65 million on his watch. Well, that's thanks to President Trump for procuring these vaccines in advance. That's something that had not been done before, partnering with the private sector and saying, ‘Hey, I'm going to roll the dice, produce these in advance. They may or may not work, but I'm going to take that risk because it could save lives.’ And it did save lives, though some of that rollout happened on Biden's watch thanks to President Trump's early action.”
