Dr. Anthony Fauci made it clear he would be leaving his prestigious position as White House Medical Advisor if former president Donald J. Trump is re-elected.
In a CNN appearance over the weekend, Jim Acosta asked Dr. Fauci directly, “If Trump were to return to the White House as President and COVID is still a threat or there is some other public health emergency…would you have confidence in his ability? Would you want to stay on in your post?”
Fauci responded, “well, no, to the second part”. The infamous doctor continued his attack on President Trump, “if you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think at best you could say it wasn’t optimal and I think history will speak for itself on that…”
Acosta pressed Fauci, “You would not serve with Trump again though, fair to say?”
Fauci responded, “Right.”
Dr. Fauci and Donald Trump have had a historically rough relationship. In June 2021, emails leaked showing Fauci’s clear political interest and willingness to suppress the true COVID origin story. Trump responded, “After seeing the emails, our country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do.”
Dr. Fauci has been a favorite of liberals and a thorn in the side of conservatives during the era of COVID-19. He has recommended double masking for Americans, 10 months after saying masks only serve to make people “feel” safer.
Faucia also coordinated a takedown of the Great Barrington Declaration, a document supporting herd immunity over harsh lockdown measures. In an email received under a Freedom of Information Act request, it was discovered that officials, including Fauci, had coordinated to discredit the authors of the document.
