Arkansas Republican gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders praised former President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed on Sunday while urging Americans to get vaccinated and slamming Dr. Fauci as a deceptive, arrogant fear-mongering bureaucrat.
Sanders wrote an op-ed in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, entitled, “The Reasoning Behind Getting Vaccinated,” and presented her reasoning for getting the “Trump vaccine.”
“What I found was simple: Dr. Fauci and the ‘because science says so’ crowd of arrogant, condescending political and bureaucrats were wrong about more than their mandates and shutdowns that have inflicted incalculable harm on our people and economy,” she declared.
“When the Trump administration initiated Operation Warp Speed in May 2020, the president stated that a vaccine would become available by December of that year at the very latest,” Sanders stated. “From the moment he made his announcement, the ‘expert’ class tried to undermine those statements with baseless fear-mongering.” She added, “It’s clear that the Trump vaccine works and is saving lives.”
“The New York Times ran an opinion piece claiming that whatever the Trump administration released would likely be a dangerous political stunt. CNN did the same. But no one did more to undercut public confidence in the vaccine than Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Biden doubted that the vaccine would be ‘real,’ while Harris said in a nationally-televised debate that she would not take any vaccine the Trump administration had a hand in creating,” she recounted. “If President Biden, Vice President Harris, and others on the left truly care about increasing the vaccination rate and saving lives, they should admit they were wrong to cast doubt on Operation Warp Speed and give President Trump and his team the credit they are due for the development of a safe and effective vaccine in record time.”

“I believe in freedom and personal responsibility. Arkansans should not be told they can’t work because their businesses or jobs are not essential. Our schools or churches should not be shut down. Large gatherings should not be banned. There should not be mandates to get vaccinated or to wear masks,” the Arkansas gubernatorial candidate adamantly stated, echoing former President Trump.

Sanders admitted to making the “deeply personal” decision to get vaccinated several months ago. She took the time to weigh the benefits versus potential risks for her and her family and decided to get inoculated. While noting that vaccination is a personal choice, she did point out that those who aren’t vaccinated stand a much greater mortality risk from COVID-19. Arkansas hospitals are “dangerously close” to maximum capacity due to rising cases, she noted.
“Some pundits and politicians have resorted to bribing, mocking, and even name-calling to coerce people into taking the vaccine. But the truth is that many Arkansans who have concerns are simply trying to make responsible decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities,” she remarked. “So to anyone still considering the merits of vaccination, I leave you with this encouragement: Pray about it, discuss it with your family and your doctor. Filter out the noise and fear-mongering and condescension, and make the best, most informed decision you can that helps your family, community, and our great state be its very best.”
