WATCH: Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, former U.S. president Donald Trump hinted at a possible run for president again in 2024, and repeated his fraudulent claims that he won the 2020 election in his first major appearance since leaving the White House.
A Trump adviser told several outlets about the vaccinations. The adviser said the Trumps received their shots in January, but did not say exactly when or whether they got their second vaccines.
Melania Trump also had a milder case of COVID-19 last October.
Trump frequently boasted about his role in encouraging vaccine development during his time in office, but he did not call for all Americans to get the shot.
As president, Trump’s personal health often sparked suspicion. During his bout with the coronavirus, for instance, he appeared to stage several photos of himself “working” through his hospitalization, and tried to pr
oject an image of strength upon his return to the White House.
Later reports suggested that he was far sicker than he appeared.
His annual medical exam results also raised eyebrows. His 2018 exam results listed him at one pound under the clinical definition of obese; then-Dr. Ronny Jackson said that Trump was “in excellent health.”
Trump met the definition of obesity after his 2019 exam, though Dr. Sean Conley at the time also said he was in “very good health.”
The first coronavirus vaccines were approved shortly after U.S. election day last November. The Biden administration has since released a sweeping distribution plan.
More than 514,000 Americans have died of the virus to date.
