Former President Donald Trump slammed the Biden administration over vaccine mandates, inflation, the southern border crisis and more on Friday in a wide-ranging interview, but still plugged the COVID-19 vaccine that he was 'very proud' to get.
Trump told FOX Business' Stuart Varney that he 'wanted' Biden 'to be successful,' but claims his handling of COVID-19 and implementing vaccine mandates was a 'disaster.'
'Look, I wanted [Biden] to be successful on the whole thing on COVID – or as I call it, the China virus,' Trump told Varney on 'Varney & Co.' on Friday.
'I wanted him to be successful. He's been totally unsuccessful. It's a disaster what's happened.
'I think he's done a terrible job on the coronavirus.'
Trump admitted he 'didn't want to talk to China too much' after COVID-19.

Former President Donald Trump appeared on Stuart Varney's show on Fox on Friday to discuss the Biden Administration, which he called a 'disaster'
Trump claimed Biden isn't giving the American people 'what they bargained for'
He also called out inflation and said 'the Americans have it totally right' to believe the price hike has to do with Biden's policies.
'The Americans have it totally right. And frankly, the pandemic - if you think about it - probably brings it down because you can't really get your economy running to the extent, and therefore, you're using less.
'I would think the pandemic would certainly might bring inflation down as opposed to elevating it. I saw him make that statement, and it's just another incorrect statement.'
Sixty-seven percent of voters claim Biden's policies are causing inflation, FOX Business reported.

'We never even heard the word supply chains when I was president. That was not even something that I ever remember even listening to in a hearing.'
Trump - who famously wanted to build a wall around the southern border of the US - also attacked the Biden administration for the crisis, calling it a 'disgrace.'
''This is not what people bargained for. They lied through the whole thing. He lied. This is never been anything like this, this is not a representative government,' he said.
Despite disagreeing with vaccine mandates, Trump plugged the vaccine, saying 'I took the vaccine, I was proud to do it.' He also reminded the public that he 'saved tens of millions of people' by developing the vaccine so quickly
He reminded the public that those who get the vaccine, even they contract COVID-19, they are less likely to be hospitalized or face death
Despite vaccine hesitancy among the Republican party, Trump continued to plug the vaccine his administration developed in record time and distributed to the public several times throughout his appearance on the show.
The former president claimed he 'wanted people to go out an get it' but doesn't want to 'force it into them.'
'I don't like [vaccine mandates], but look, I took them, I took the vaccine, I was proud to do it,' he said. 'Somebody said: "Oh, sir, maybe it's a little controversial, don't mention it." It's just the opposite. I'm very proud.'
Trump made sure to mention that his administration only took 'nine months' to develop the vaccine that wasn't supposed to be
