President Trump held his latest rally in Alabama on Saturday and he was booed by the crowd.
The former president drew the jeers when he encouraged the crowd to get vaccinated.
According to CNBC:
Former President Donald Trump was booed at a rally on Saturday in Alabama after telling supporters they should get vaccinated.
“And you know what? I believe totally in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do,” Trump said. “But, I recommend: take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines.”
Some boos rang out from the rally crowd, who were largely maskless.
“No, that’s okay. That’s all right. You got your freedoms,” Trump said, echoing rhetoric from opponents of mask and vaccine mandates. “But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. Okay? I’ll call up Alabama, I’ll say, hey, you know what? But [the vaccine] is working. But you do have your freedoms you have to keep. You have to maintain that.”
Out of all 50 states, Alabama ranks last in vaccination rate with just over 36% of the population fully vaccinated.
