Trump continues to deny the pandemic by attempting to discredit doctors, disputing science and cursing the press for reporting rising coronavirus case counts — the long-running rift between the White House and Dr. Anthony Fauci burst into the open Saturday night.
Dr. Fauci for with Trump 'playing politics' just before the election. Experts say Trump has serious emotional problems and has now favored Dr. Atlas who 'doesn't know what he is talking about'.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is the leading infectious-disease expert and he said he has not spoken to Trump for almost a month and is no longer part of any public press conferences on the subject.
Embarrassed and obviously humiliated like an overgrown child, Trump finally found someone to side with him, a Dr. Scott Atlas who wants a reopening of the country and to allow covid-19 to spread among young people.
Fauci and other experts believe the infection rate would soon reach 100,000 new cases a day if this strategy was followed by Trump and several million people in the US would die. Trump obviously believes that's okay. Fauci described the overall White House response to the pandemic as 'disjointed'. Then Trump accused Fauci of 'playing politics' three days before election. The White House is so upset that Dr. Anthony Fauci gave an in-depth interview on the subject of the virus; let his frustrations be known how the current administration is dealing with the disease and in a dangerous and deadly manner.
For months Trump disputed his own medical experts and other scientists. He refused to take basic steps to control the virus while mocking former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask. As a result many experts feel Trump is indirectly responsible for the deaths of more than 100,000 US citizens, and more on the way.
Fauci let his obvious displeasure with Trump be known in a Washington Post interview published Saturday night. In that interview he chided Trump for allowing a neuroradiologist with no training in the field of infectious disease to make policy and give expert advice.
"All the stars are aligned in the wrong place" as the country heads indoors in colder weather, Fauci said in an interview late Friday. "A day when the US set a global record for the most daily cases and the nation surpassed 229,000 deaths."You could not possibly be positioned more poorly."
