In an interview with One America News, Trump said he had watched politicians dodge questions about whether they received a booster shot because they were gutless.
He said politicians should tell the truth about their booster shot status.
His comments seem to be directed at DeSantis, who was criticized last month after he told Fox News he had received the normal shot.
Christina Pushaw, a spokeswoman for the Governor, said on the social media site that he is of the opinion that getting a booster shot should be a personal choice.
During the Tuesday interview, Trump said that he has experienced no side effects after getting boosted and that he thinks vaccine saved tens of millions.
36.7%. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 200 million Americans have received a booster dose of vaccine. Scientists and health experts say a booster shot decreases hospitalization and the chance of developing a severe illness after people test positive for the virus.
Trump said last month that he probably wouldn't get a vaccine booster. Trump wants to take credit for the development of Covid-19 vaccines as a major achievement under his watch. In an interview with a right-wing pundit last month, Trump claimed he came up with three vaccines. Critics pointed out that Trump did not try to encourage Americans to get vaccinations. The highest vaccine holdout is found among Americans who identify as Republicans.
