Trump Hints At Firing Fauci After Election Day

Trump Hints At Firing Fauci After Election Day

The president hinted at the move after supporters spontaneously broke out into a "Fire Fauci!" chant at a campaign rally in Opa-Locka, Florida, Sunday night.

Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, noted the United States could report more than 100,000 new Covid-19 cases every single day if it does not quickly reverse the course when it comes to public health practices. "I appreciate the advice". Biden has said that if he's declared the victor, one of his first calls would go to Fauci, asking him to continue his government service.

Trump has also become more vocal in his criticisms of Fauci, who said in an interview published Saturday by The Washington Post that the administration's handling of the crisis had fallen short. The former vice president has said he hopes Fauci would remain in his role if he is elected president. On a call with campaign staff in October, Trump said, "People are exhausted of COVID".

Still, Trump's comments on Fauci less than 48 hours before polls close likely ensure the pandemic will remain front and center heading into Election Day.

Fauci's latest rebuke against the administration comes after he had said late last month that it was not likely for a Covid-19 vaccine to be available in the United States until next year, The Hill news reported.

"It's not a good situation", The Hill news website reported on Sunday citing Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, as saying in an interview to The Washington Post. A President who at various times has claimed he has done a masterful job of containing it, said it is no big deal, and has presented himself as a superman who took it head on and defeated it- even though 230,000 Americans have died from it.

"He's a smart guy who's talking about things that I believe he doesn't have any real insight or knowledge or experience in".

It's the most direct Mr Trump has been in suggesting he was serious about trying to remove Dr Fauci from his position.

As he has since the start of the pandemic, Trump has downplayed the virus at his daily campaign rallies.

"To see them slam Fauci like this, especially coming on top of [Trump senior advisor Jared] Kushner's words about taking back the pandemic response from the doctors that we heard last week, it is just infuriating", Ranney said.

"Joe Biden is a corrupt politician bought and paid for by China", Trump said.
