Former U.S. President Donald Trump wants Americans to remember that the COVID-19 vaccines were developed while he was in office. However, for unknown reasons, he did not join every other ex-presidents, for the Ad Council’s new COVID-19 vaccination public service announcement.
In the minute-long ad, former U.S. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter all talk about what they are looking forward to doing when the COVID-19 pandemic is under control and urge citizens to get vaccinated as soon as they are able, to bring the pandemic to an end point. “It’s up to you,” Carter says. The ad shows photos of all four living ex-presidents and their wives getting inoculated.
Donald Trump and former first lady Melania Trump did quietly get vaccinated before leaving the White House, Trump’s office said on March 1st, but public photos of their inoculation are yet to be seen.
