(Headline USA) Former President Donald Trump again urged people to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, saying he would recommend vaccination to “a lot of people that don’t want to get it, and a lot of those people voted for me.”

In an interview Tuesday night on Fox News, Trump acknowledged that people were free to decide for themselves whether they would be vaccinated against COVID-19.

A new poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 42% of Republicans say they probably or definitely will not get the shot, compared with 17% of Democrats — a 25-point split.

Trump — who is responsible for pushing pharmaceutical companies and government approval agencies to move rapidly on vaccines in record time under Operation Warp Speed — has promoted vaccination before.

When he appeared Feb. 28 at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, he said, “Everybody, go get your shot.”
