The Infowars presenter Alex Jones issued an “urgent Christmas program with a warning” to former President Donald Trump on Saturday after he had praised the COVID-19 vaccine in an interview.
This week, Trump challenged the Daily Wire host Candace Owens as she tried to cast doubt on the vaccine’s effectiveness. The former president provoked the ire of his own fan base when he said vaccines are effective “but some people don’t take them”.
“Those who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones who don’t get vaccinated,” Trump said in the interview. “But it is still your choice and if you get vaccinated you are protected”.
“You see, the results of the vaccine are very good,” he continued. “And if you [COVID-19] it is a very light shape. People don’t die if they get vaccinated. “
The interview angered Jones, a fervent vaccine skeptic who allegedly spread disinformation during the pandemic and tried to take advantage of it by touting its own products as cures for the coronavirus.
On Saturday’s video, Jones said:
“Either you are completely ignorant of the so-called vaccine gene therapy that you achieved with Operation Warp Speed, or you are the most vicious person who has ever lived to force this toxic substance on the public and attack your constituents when they simply do try to save their life and the life of others ”.
“Recently, Candace Owens tried to politely put you face-to-face about the fact that what they call vaccines causes many deaths and diseases,” Jones said. “And you said that no one was harmed by these vaccinations, and that is an outright lie.”

The Infowars host went on to say that the COVID-19 vaccine was intended to “wipe out the population’s immune system and make them dependent on ongoing gene therapies.”
In excerpts from his broadcast, which can be seen on the video, Jones said vaccines can cause “spontaneous abortions and miscarriages,” nosebleeds, cramps, paralysis, blindness, “ovaries that basically dissolve,” women’s period disorders, and endometriosis have caused.
“That, President Trump, is what you are signing now,” said Jones. “It is one thing to rush the injection because you believed it would save people and help end the lockdowns.”
He continued, “But now that you know that [Anthony] Fauci has set you on a scam, you must get rid of that lie or you will forever be known as the MVVP, the most valuable vaccine pusher. And the name Trump will be associated with pure evil. Do not go down in history as Josef Mengele 2.0. “
Jones then went on to call Trump a “coward” but telling him to “repent”: “Your legacy will be that of a monster. Your legacy will be that of a eugenicist. Her legacy will be that of a child murderer using medical tyranny ”.
Newsweek has reached out to Trump’s office for a comment.
The former Trump supporter, currently at odds with Congress over his role in the January 6 uprising in the Capitol, has recently positioned himself as a harsh critic of the former Commander in Chief for supporting the COVID-19 vaccine.
In a leaked excerpt from an interview for the January 2019 documentary You Can’t Watch This, Jones said he wished he had “never met” Trump.
“I’m fed up with this f…ng Donald Trump, Mann“, sagte er. „God, I’m f….ing sick of him. And I’m not doing this because I’m crawling up his ass, you know. It’s like that, I’m so sick of it. “
The Daily Wire interview wasn’t the first time Trump’s own supporters turned against him over the vaccine issue. Last week, the former president was booed at an event in Dallas after saying he received the booster vaccination.
