Dr. Anthony Fauci Replies To Trump Says ‘I Was Never Wrong’

Dr. Anthony Fauci has served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) for the last 36-years serving under the leadership of six U.S. presidents from Ronald Regan to Barack Obama to Donald Trump, all of whom have had differing political agendas. But his role is not that of a politician. By his own admission, he is a civil servant acting as the nation’s premiere infectious disease expert dedicated to providing the best intel on how to manage epidemics and pandemics such as COVID-19, HIV/AIDS, and Ebola.

As part of the White House’s coronavirus task force, Fauci has been both lauded and questioned by Trump, who in one moment has said or tweeted that they have a great relationship and in another is calling him “a little bit of an alarmist.” Meanwhile, Fauci continues to push the ideology of social distancing, and proper hygienic practices as effective ways to combat COVID-19.

In an interview with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday on July 19, Trump listed several of the mistakes he lays at Fauci’s feet particularly his claim early on during the pandemic that people didn’t have to go out and purchase masks to properly protect themselves. 

Trump admitted that he too has made some mistakes in handling the country’s response to COVID-19 but on Tuesday, (July 28), during a press conference at the White House, the President once again questioned Fauci, this time wondering why the American public approved of Fauci’s measures more than his own.
