Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.
Does it make sense that a Trump vaccine stimulating an immune response to a single spike protein would be better than the body encountering the entire viral structure?
Infection results in gaining natural immunity with the full spectrum of immune system response. It stands to reason that the body recognizing the whole virus is a far better situation for future coronavirus variants.

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at John Hopkins School of Medicine, during an appearance on The Vince Coglianese Show, said individuals formerly infected with COVID-19 are seven times more likely then vaccinated people to fight off the virus.
“It appears that natural immunity is better against the Delta variant. When you get infected with COVID, your body’s immune system develops antibodies to the entire surface of the virus,” Makary said. “Not just the slight protein that the vaccines gives you, but the entire surface. And so you get a more diverse antibody portfolio in your system.”
Makary said data from Israel revealed that natural immunity appears to be 6.7x more effective than being vaccinated when it comes to fighting off COVID-19.
“One of the great failures of our medical leadership has been ignoring the half of America with natural immunity, which is the half of non-vaccinated folks.”
WIND: COVID is not going away any time soon, so it’s a risk management decision weighing vaccination vs infection. If the risk profile is significant and a personal decision is freely made, vaccination is likely the the best option for many, even given the potential injury from the vaccine and no compensation for it.
