The conservative media outlet The Daily Wire, which was co-founded by pundit and author Ben Shapiro, has stated it will refuse to enforce President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesses and will use every tool at its disposal to fight the controversial requirement.
“The Daily Wire does have more than 100 employees, but we won’t be enforcing Joe Biden’s unconstitutional and tyrannical vaccine mandate. That’s it. We’ll use every tool at our disposal, including legal action, to resist,” Jeremey Boreing, co-founder and co-CEO of The Daily Wire, wrote on Twitter on Friday along with a video explaining the company’s position as The Western Journal reported.
President Biden announced on Thursday that the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be enforcing the mandate which requires companies with over 100 employees could face hefty fines if all their staffers are not vaccinated.
“Biden’s ultimatum will impact over 80 million private-sector workers. Companies that refuse to comply will face up to $14,000 in fines for every single violation. So, I’m sure most companies will probably just do it. They don’t have much choice. We won’t,” Boreing continued.
He explained that the company has no animosity towards vaccines, but rather, the unconstitutional way President Biden is enforcing his federal mandate.
“It’s not that we’re anti-vaccine. I’m personally very pro-vaccine. I think the COVID vaccines are probably the greatest scientific achievement so far in the 21st century,” he said. “And I think the speed at which they were created may be Trump’s greatest achievement as president. They seem to do a pretty good job preventing hospitalization and a great job preventing death from COVID-19. That’s terrific.”
“If I were dictator, I’d probably make you get it,” Boreing continued. “But I’m not a dictator. And neither is Joe Biden.”

“He has no right to impose this burden on American businesses. How are we supposed to pay for it? What are we going to do with all these new liabilities that we incur from injecting ourselves into the private health decisions of our employees? More to the point, he has no right to impose this burden on the American people,” Boreing said.
