During an appearance with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, former president Donald Trump became upset when a crowd booed him for bragging that he has taken a COVID vaccine booster shot.
Trump waved his hands and shouted “Don’t, don’t, don’t,” and also claimed a “hundred million people” were saved because he supported the development of COVID vaccines.
“Both the President and I are vaxxed and, did you get the booster?” O’Reilly asked.
“Yes,” Trump declared, to a mix of cheers and boos from the audience.
The former president immediately began waving his hands and exclaiming “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, no, no, no.” He then pointed at the audience and said, “That’s a very tiny group over there.”

Trump also extolled the virtues of COVID vaccines during the interview.
“Look, we did something that was historic, we saved tens of millions of lives worldwide when we, together, all of us, we got a vaccine done,” Trump said. “This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now, take credit for it… it’s great, what we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away.”
Trump went on to tell supporters that when they express skepticism over the vaccine, “You’re playing right into their hands.” He also expressed his opinion that a “hundred million people” were saved by COVID vaccines, and claimed that if he had not supported the vaccine then it would’ve been as deadly as the Spanish flu.
