Dr. Anthony Fauci came to the defense of the president on his handling of the Coronavirus.
“I don’t recall anything that was any gross distortion in things that I spoke to him about.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role to the President has many Americans divided. The onslaught of criticism of Dr. Fauci has become the new normal among some conservative groups. Liberal groups seem to be all on board, taking advice from the Doctor. President Trump has said he would not get rid of Fauci, that he is doing an “outstanding job.”
President Trump met with “Journalist” Bob Woodward to discuss Covid-19. The president admitted how he downplayed the threat of the coronavirus pandemic to prevent the public from panicking.
Trump spoke to Woodward several times, as the latter researched his latest book about the administration, Rage.
The Washington Post went further, saying that Trump had been “intentionally misleading” Americans.Breitbart
Democratic Nominee Sleepy Joe attacked the president in Michigan on Thursday, telling the United Auto Workers that President Trump had “Lied” about Covid-19.
But Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Fox News later: “I don’t think [Trump] ever distorted things that I spoke to him about.”
Referring to Trump’s coronavirus press briefings, Fauci said, “I don’t think he said much different than what we said [to him] when we were in the Oval Office.”
In public statements about the coronavirus pandemic, going all the way back to January, Trump took a very optimistic view — arguably, an overly optimistic one.
But he also frequently mentioned the fact that the virus could pose a risk to the country.
On January 30, 2020, for example, Trump told a rally in Des Moines, Iowa (emphasis added):
Hopefully, everything’s going to be great. They have somewhat of a problem, but hopefully, it’s all going to be great. But, we’re working with China just so you know, and other countries very, very closely, so it doesn’t get out of hand, but it’s something that we have to be very, very careful with, right? We have to be very careful.
He imposed a travel ban on China the next day.
Even if Dr. Fauci isn’t liked by 63 million Americans, at least he’s defending our Prescient in a time it seems the whole world is against him.
