[Ed. – So his promise to ‘crush the virus,’ which helped get him elected, was empty rhetoric.]
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki walked back President Biden’s comments that the COVID-19 vaccine would be available to any American who wants it by the spring, telling reporters on Tuesday that the vaccine will not be widely available by then.
Biden, on Monday, predicted every American who wanted a vaccine would be able to get one by springtime.
But Psaki squashed that expectation Tuesday.
“What the president’s goal is, is ensuring that there’s greater availability in the spring,” Psaki said. “He will push his team…This is his focus every single day.”
She added: “But the fact is, is every American is not going to be eligible this spring.”
Psaki went on to say that it is “his hope” that more Americans will have access as quickly as possible.”
