    President Biden pushed back on a reporter at a press briefing on Thursday, who questioned whether the new administration’s coronavirus vaccine goal is ambitious enough.

    Biden has set a goal to vaccinate 100 million Americans during his first 100 days in office. During the press conference, Biden called the Trump administration’s distribution of coronavirus vaccines a “dismal failure so far,” warning that “things are going to continue to get worse before they get better.”

    However, the seven-day rolling average for coronavirus vaccine doses administered to Americans currently sits at 912,000, according to the Bloomberg vaccine tracker. (On Wednesday alone, 1.6 million doses were administered.) This indicates that the Biden administration is not far from its goal of vaccinating one million Americans per day.

    On Thursday, Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller asked Biden if the vaccination goal was “high enough,” since “that’s basically where the U.S. is right now.”


    “When I announced it you all said it wasn’t possible. Come on, give me a break, man,” Biden responded. “It’s a good start, a hundred million.” Internal projections from the Trump administration showed that the U.S. could administer at least 170 million doses by the end of April, two Trump administration officials told Bloomberg.

    During the press conference, Biden also announced that he would invoke the Defense Production Act to “accelerate the making of everything that’s needed to protect, test, and vaccinate and the care of our people.” Biden warned that the death toll from coronavirus infections would hit 500,000 in February.

    Over 408,000 Americans have died of COVID-19 as of Thursday.

    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    If reporters are getting to him already, he’s definitely in the wrong line of work.

    This is funny. At least Biden let the reporter stay, Trump might have likely thrown him/her out. It’s all perspective.

    Pfft, If its perspective you're talking about, Lets talk about an openly hostile press corp towards Trump and a press corp that threw marshmallows at biden during his campaign. Of course joe is the press's next messiah and everything Trump did good will be bidens achievement and every thing bad biden does will be Trumps fault...THERE is perspective for you.

    Joe ain’t just a candidate any more. He’s especially not a candidate vs the Great and Horrible Orange One who Must Not Win!! Welcome to the big leagues, Joe. It’s only too bad it took the press this long to start holding him accountable.

    Getting the vaccine rolled out is the state governors job. Trump gave them the tools. The failure is now with governors. Governors have the ability to call up guardsmen, and there is alot of medical guardsmen then could have been used to give shots out.
