Meanwhile, as the virus grows out of control in many countries, USA officials are resisting calls to share its hoard of AstraZeneca vaccine. Trump, Fauci said, "is a such a strongly popular person.it would be very helpful for the effort for that to happen".

The Ad Council, which was behind the ads, told ABC News that the ads were filmed at the inauguration of Biden in January, which Trump did not attend.

Trump's COVID-19 Task Force coordinator, Deborah Birx, MD, has two new jobs: chief medical and scientific advisor to an air filtration company with a focus on COVID infections, and senior fellow at the George W. Bush Institute. "Which is the reason why I and so many of my public health colleagues say that, although we are going in the right direction, and things look really quite bright, in the sense of positive thinking concerning the vaccines, which, every day, we get better and better with it". "If he came out and said 'Go and get vaccinated, it's really important for your health, the health of your family, and the health of the country, it seems absolutely inevitable that the vast majority of people who are his close followers would listen to him".

People will gather at Parliament Square later on Monday under the banner "End Violence Against Women". Four arrests were made for public order offences and for breaches of coronavirus regulations.

Last week, in a statement featuring his familiar blend of unconventional capitalization and punctuation, Trump said that "if I wasn't President, you wouldn't be getting that lovely "shot" for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn't be getting it at all". "We should just be concerned about getting as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can". Last month, he only briefly told supporters to "go get your shot" during a lengthy speech at the Conservative Political Action Committee summit in Florida. "Especially those Republicans who say that they're not willing.", a reporter at the White House asked at the end of an event Monday. Their inoculations weren't revealed until weeks later, after he'd left office.

The other living former USA presidents - Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter - are set to appear in two public service announcements for the coronavirus vaccine alongside their wives, without Mr Trump. Biden wants every American adult to be eligible for a shot by May 1.

A day earlier, Fauci said he wishes Trump would use his influence over supporters to encourage them to get the vaccine, saying it would "be a game changer" during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

The Biden administration is preparing a national campaign to convince people to get vaccinated when they're eligible. "They want to have conversations with people locally in their community, whether it's their doctor, their pharmacist or other people that they trust".
