President Joe Biden said local doctors would be more influential than former President Donald Trump in getting "MAGA folks" inoculated. During his speech on Monday, March 15 about implementing the Covid-19 relief package, Biden replied to whether Trump should be involved when it comes to giving pro-Trump supporters their vaccine.

"I discussed it with my team and they say the thing that has more impact than anything Trump would say to the MAGA folks is what the local doctor, what the local preachers, what the local people in the community say," the president said. While the focus in Biden's speech was trying to spread the message of people getting vaccinated, Twitter users focused on 'MAGA folks' for a bit, slammed Trump and expressed their opinions on getting the vaccine.

Some thought it was downright offensive, while some felt there wasn't anything wrong. "I don’t understand what’s insult about it? Trump supporters refer to themselves as MAGA all the time and Biden says “hey folks” to everyone...so where’s the offensive part?" wrote one of the people. "Biden actually said “ the MAGA folks”!! I love this man!!" read another tweet.



 



 

Some felt the vaccination wasn't needed. "Not a single soul living on this planet will ever be able to persuade me to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Not a chance lol," a tweet said. More so than the digs, one section felt it was time to move on. "Can we just move on from the previous dude and the previous administration? President Biden has so much to focus on and fix so let's not waste time on him anymore. Please," a comment read.

"Is it wrong for me to hope that there might have been just a few hardcore #MAGA folks who watched President Biden's address tonight and thought to themselves that maybe the former guy wasn't as wonderful as they had thought?" a person asked.

"Biden on the vaccine: “I talked to the experts, & more than anything Trump could say to the MAGA folks, it’s even more important that local doctors do so.” (paraphrased) Trump has been dismissed. Think it’ll drive him crazy enough to tell the MAGA folks to take the vaccine?" a tweet read. Some blamed Trump for being selfish. "It's not Biden's job to tell Trump how to be a human being. Trump could start by explaining why he kept it a secret that he got a vaccine in January. Trump could also explain why he politicized mask wearing starting a year ago when he KNEW the virus was airborne."

Meanwhile, Trump in his statement said: "I hope everyone remembers when they're getting the COVID-19... Vaccine, that if I wasn't President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful "shot" for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn't be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!"
