(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump railed at the Biden White House in a statement Friday after the administration dropped its recommendation that vaccinated Americans continue to wear masks, saying no one in his administration was mentioned.
“Isn’t it incredible that because of the vaccines, which I and my Administration came up with years ahead of schedule (despite the fact that everybody, including [Anthony] Fauci, said would never happen), that we no longer need masks,” Trump said.

“Yet our names are not even mentioned in what everybody is calling the modern day miracle of the vaccines?” he added.
During an address in the Rose Garden Thursday, President Joe Biden touted the new recommendation as a “great milestone” made possible “by the extraordinary success we have had in vaccinating so many Americans, so quickly.”
But he did not mention “Operation Warp Speed,” a program initiated under the former president which is widely credited with developing a number of vaccines in months rather than years.
“Without the vaccines, this world would have been in for another 1917 Spanish Flu, where up to 100 million people died,” Trump continued in his statement.
“Because of the vaccines we pushed and developed in record time, nothing like that will be even close to happening. Just a mention please!” Trump added.
“The Biden Administration had zero to do with it. All they did was continue our plan of distribution, which was working well right from the beginning!”
Trump has also regularly criticized the White House for saying there was no vaccine distribution plan in place when the new administration took over, insisting “all they did is take what we had and keep it moving.”
