Peter Navarro, former director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, told Newsmax on Monday that former President Donald Trump should be “rightly proud” about bringing “experimental therapies to the American public” in a third of the time expected.

“If he wants to get the vaccine, I think that’s his choice,” Navarro said. “He is a person in the category of high risk. He . . . had the virus himself and went through hell.

“I mean, I remember being in the White House when he got [COVID-19]. And the minute I heard he was going to get remdesivir — it was like code red,” he explained.

Trump made headlines after touting his part in the speed of the vaccine rollout and its effectiveness during an interview with The Daily Wire released Tuesday.

“Look, the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you do get [COVID-19], it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine,” Trump said.

In the same interview, Trump rejected the idea of requiring vaccines, calling it a matter of choice.

“The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take their vaccine. But it’s still their choice, and if you take the vaccine, you are protected,” he added.
