Over the past week tensions escalated between Donald Trump and Dr. Tony Fauci.
The President and his advisors believed Dr. Fauci led the nation astray with the disastrous strategy to shut down the country’s economy to “stop the spread” of the coronavirus.
And now Donald Trump admitted one thing about Dr. Fauci that resolved one big question.
White House staff have become increasingly critical of Dr. Fauci’s failed advice that dictated the country’s response to the coronavirus.
Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters that the White House distributed a list of times Dr. Fauci bungled questions about the coronavirus in response to the fake news media demanding what the President meant in an interview when Trump stated that while he liked Dr. Fauci, Dr. Fauci had made numerous “mistakes” in the past.
That was followed by White House trade adviser Peter Navarro authoring a USA Today op-ed laying out all the times Dr, Fauci pointed the President in the wrong direction during the coronavirus pandemic.
“So when you ask me whether I listen to Dr. Fauci’s advice, my answer is: only with skepticism and caution,” Navarro concluded his op-ed.
White House Director of Strategic Communications Alyssa Farah disavowed the Navarro op-ed in a post on her Twitter account.
“The Peter Navarro op-ed didn’t go through normal White House clearance processes and is the opinion of Peter alone. @realDonaldTrump values the expertise of the medical professionals advising his Administration,” Farrah wrote.
Before President Trump traveled to Georgia, the President met with reporters and made it clear Dr. Fauci was a valued member of the coronavirus task force.
“We’re all on the same team, including Dr. Fauci,” Trump told the press. “I have a very good relationship with Dr. Fauci and we’re all on the same team. We want to get rid of this mess that China sent us.”
When the fake news media asked President Trump about the Navarro op-ed, President Trump explained that Navarro was freelancing and that this was a course of action Navarro should not have pursued.
“Well he made a statement representing himself,” Trump continued. “He shouldn’t be doing that. No, I have a very good relationship with Anthony.”
Many Trump supporters were hoping the President would fire Dr. Fauci.
But that would cause a political firestorm the President cannot afford right as he tried to reverse Joe Biden’s lead in the polls.
Instead, President Trump does the next best thing and prevents Dr. Fauci from having unfiltered access to the President where his wrongheaded recommendations and policies are kept out of the Oval Office.
Dr. Fauci briefs Vice President Mike Pence who then controls the flow of information to President Trump.
