Former President Donald Trump wants Americans, and especially his supporters, to get the coronavirus vaccine.

Im all in favor of the vaccine, Trump told New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin over the phone Thursday. Its one of the great achievements, a true miracle, and not only for the United States. Were saving tens of millions of lives throughout the world. Were saving entire countries.

If we didnt have a vaccine, it would have been just like the 1918 Spanish flu, Trump told the New York Post. The 1919 pandemic is estimated to have killed at least 50 million people globally, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. COVID-19 so far has killed around 3 million people, according to a Johns Hopkins tally.

The New York Post interview wasnt the first time former President Trump has tried to encourage his supporters to get the coronavirus vaccine this week.

At a Mar-a-Lago interview on Monday, Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity that hed been asked to make a commercial supporting coronavirus vaccine, because a lot of our people dont want to take vaccine.

Former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama are each featured in a video by the Ad Council which shows them, and the former first ladies, getting the coronavirus vaccine.

A recent Pew Research Center study found that Republicans say they are less likely to get the coronavirus vaccine than Democrats.
