Americans following COVID vaccine mandates like sheep: Donald Trump Jr
- Donald Trump Jr blamed the media for downplaying anti-vaccine protests in Europe
- He also criticised President Joe Biden for not not fulfilling his campaign promise of curing cancer
- In 2019, Biden vowed to find a cure to cancer while campaigning in Ottumwa, Iowa
Donald Trump Jr has said Americans are following COVID-19 vaccine mandates "like sheep", while blaming the media for downplaying anti-vaccine protests in Europe. He also criticised President Joe Biden's handling of the Afghanistan crisis, COVID-19 pandemic and the economy. Reinforced coronavirus restrictions have triggered streets demonstrations and violence in several European countries amid a steep rise in infections over the last few weeks.
"They [the media and the left] are gonna make sure that you never hear about it because they don't want you getting these kinds of ideas that freedom may actually still exist in some parts of the world," Trump Jr. said during an interview with FOX News host Dan Bongino.
"I mean, Europe is pushing back and America is sitting there like sheep."
Trump Jr. also claimed that conservatives and right-leaning individuals must be wary of "big tech, mainstream media, social media, trillion-dollar industries that are functioning as the marketing department for the radical left."
Trump Jr also attacked Biden for not fulfilling his campaign promise of curing cancer.
"He was also going to cure cancer, if I remember correctly. Everyone said, 'Oh, that's great, we should definitely elect him.' I haven't seen much movement on that," he said.
In 2019, Biden vowed to find a cure to cancer during a presidential campaign rally in Ottumwa, Iowa, having lost his eldest son Beau to brain cancer in 2015.
"A lot of you understand what loss is and when loss occurs, you know that people come up to you and tell you 'I understand' if you lose a husband, a wife, a son, a daughter, a family member," Biden said during the rally. "That's why I've worked so hard in my career to make sure that—I promise you if I'm elected president, you're going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we're going to cure cancer."
