Biden should thank Trump “because a few moments ago he tried to take credit for everything that Donald Trump did on COVID-19,” Hannity continued. “Three vaccines: thanks to Donald trump’s Operation Warp Speed.”
Hannity noted that the Trump administration fast-tracked the development of the vaccine and that the vaccination program was already up and running by the time Biden entered the White House.
“Why don’t you just thank Donald Trump?” Hannity added. “No Trump, no vaccine Joe. Stop taking credit for something you had nothing to do with.”

Critics, however, reminded Hannity of the ex-president’s overall disastrous response to the pandemic ― dismissing the threat of the virus, mocking people for wearing masks and holding packed campaign rallies. Trump ended up contracting COVID-19 and being hospitalized for three days. His mishandling of the crisis was a major factor in his election defeat.
