Supporters of former President Donald Trump booed and jeered when he announced on Sunday that he had received a COVID-19 booster shot and was in favor of the vaccine.
Trump made the comments during an appearance on the former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's "History Tour." Newsweek first reported on the remarks.
At the event, Trump noted that the COVID-19 vaccine was developed under his administration as part of Operation Warp Speed. "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," Trump said, adding later: "It's great. What we've done is historic. Don't let them take it away."
