Donald Trump issued the following statement in response to Dr. Anthony Fauci's appearance on 60 Minutes.
|Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America|
|Based on their interviews, I felt it was time to speak up about Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, two self-promoters trying to reinvent history to cover for their bad instincts and faulty recommendations, which I fortunately almost always overturned. They had bad policy decisions that would have left our country open to China and others, closed to reopening our economy, and years away from an approved vaccine—putting millions of lives at risk. We developed American vaccines by an American President in record time, nine months, which is saving the entire world. We bought billions of dollars of these vaccines on a calculated bet that they would work, perhaps the most important bet in the history of the world. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx moved far too slowly, and if it were up to them we’d currently be locked in our basements as our country suffered through a financial depression. Families, and children in particular, would be suffering the mental strains of this disaster like never before. In a fake interview last night on CNN, Dr. Fauci, who said he was an athlete in college but couldn’t throw a baseball even close to home plate, it was a “roller,” tried to take credit for the vaccine, when in fact he said it would take three to five years, and probably longer, to have it approved. Dr. Fauci was incapable of pressing the FDA to move it through faster. I was the one to get it done, and even the fake news media knows and reports this. Dr. Fauci is also the king of “flip-flops” and moving the goalposts to make himself look as good as possible. He fought me so hard because he wanted to keep our country open to countries like China. I closed it against his strong recommendation, which saved many lives. Dr. Fauci also said we didn’t need to wear masks, then a few months later he said we needed to wear masks, and now, two or three of them. Fauci spent U.S. money on the Wuhan lab in China—and we now know how that worked out. Dr. Birx is a proven liar with very little credibility left. Many of her recommendations were viewed as “pseudo-science,” and Dr. Fauci would always talk negatively about her and, in fact, would ask not to be in the same room with her. The States who followed her lead, like California, had worse outcomes on Covid, and ruined the lives of countless children because they couldn’t go to school, ruined many businesses, and an untold number of Americans who were killed by the lockdowns themselves. Dr. Birx was a terrible medical advisor, which is why I seldom followed her advice. Her motto should be “Do as I say, not as I do.” Who can forget when Dr. Birx gave a huge mandate to the people of our Nation to not travel, and then traveled a great distance to see her family for Thanksgiving—only to have them call the police and turn her in? She then, embarrassingly for her, resigned. Finally, Dr. Birx says she can’t hear very well, but I can. There was no “very difficult” phone call, other than Dr. Birx’s policies that would have led us directly into a COVID caused depression. She was a very negative voice who didn’t have the right answers. Time has proven me correct. I only kept Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx on because they worked for the U.S. government for so long—they are like a bad habit!|
I eagerly await the hysterical over-reaction....
Amen! Watching snowflakes meltdown is one of my favorite pass-times. 🙂
Ralph Riley says
Trump is right. Mark Meadows spoke about her CNN discussion. and how odd it was to see her present herself as a mistreated medical counselor. She should not have played the victim here. Too bad for her.
Sharon Stein says
I believe every word you said, because I remember your actions were rational, logical, effective and I observed the results. Thank you President Trump! Thank you!! Truth is truth.
She’s gone but we’re still stuck with Fauci.
I have felt that Fausto and Birx were not genuine with their recommendations for the people of America and are part of a larger problem and can be paid to say just exactly what the left wants people to hear.
Ed Garono says
Too bad the rest of the country will never hear this story. The media and big tech censorship are the biggest threat to the people. How can we destroy these evil entities. The masses still blindly believe the news and censorship.
David Thomas says
Once again the President is correct. These clowns had no idea what was going on but they acted like they are experts. As for Dr. Faucci, he is a corrupt bastard.
President Trump should have fired them all, Fauchi, Birx, Barr, Wray, and especially his son in law, in the interest of "Making America Great Again". Now we all suffer the consequences of his inaction.
Why did he ever allow them a public form in this fake pandemic?
So PRESIDENT Trump.. When you kicking the jackass and his sidekick out the White House?
Dr. Doom and Gloom is what Fauchi was and is. Why did anyone listen to that old fool?
No Kool-Aid For Me says
I voted twice for you Mr. Trump (actually against the alternatives), BUT... I really lost a whole lot of confidence in you when you declared this Covid scam a National emergency, then continued to renew that! You can criticize Fauci & Birx all you want, but the fact remains that it was YOU who put them up as the so called "science-based" authorities for all to follow & never had the guts to question the validity of any part of this, then to go on to heavily promote this already completely broken "vaccine" agenda is IMO utterly despicable.
Had you kept your word about Robert Kennedy Jr. heading up a commission on vaccine safety, this entire thing possibly would have never been able to occur. I hold YOU mostly responsible for all the lives harmed and lost, not to Covid, which has never even been proven to exist, let alone to be contagious, but all the repercussions from your corporate interests over the American people, ex: deaths soon after these jabs, deaths of despair, job loses, suicides, child cruelty. Inhumane & oppressive doesn't begin to describe what you alone initiated. Also, It's not like anything you ever said wasn't always heavily scrutinized anyways. Too bad when we needed you most to stand up for truth & our God given liberties, you gave us a rubber cane to lean on!
PS Why don't you have the courage to tell us all the real story behind withdrawing funds to the WHO all the while giving even more $$$ to the eugenicist king?
Those of us who keep up with vaccine information tried to warn Trump again and again about Fauci. I know we are just citizens in a comment thread but we saw the fruits of Faici’s behaviors and were not afraid to say this man is dishonest. I am glad that President Trump acknowledges this now but why did he keep putting him out front befor the people?!?!
It is beyond my understanding how Trump can believe that these vaccines are a good thing. It seems he just wants to take credit for the 'good' things. What will he do when the vaccines are banned for killing & injuring so many people? Will he continue to take credit for the vaccines then?
Fauci has always been a crook, more interested in his pocketbook than the health of people. Just look at his history. Timing science 'discoveries' to benefit his wallet instead of people in need. Look at his foul play in AIDS/HIV research, not to mention it was his promoting/funding 'gain of function' research (after congress said stop, Fauci moved the experiments to Wuhan) that has gifted the world with the current pandemic.
Robert J says
But Birx did have an impressive scarf collection!

History will show that pushing a Dna modifying technology as a "vaccine" was the wrong decision. Letting the medical profession and especially public health officials off the hook for their failure to educate the public on the importance of improving natural immunity through sunshine exposure and vitamin D augmentation, etc. was Donald Trump's failure. Drs Fauci and Birx are examples of the SES, Senior Executive Services, a legal status for "guns for hire" in the executive branch enacted by Congress and Jimmy Carter that constrained DJT's ability to get reasonable policies inacted. He could not fire them. Aim4truth has investigated this and I wish this site would take a look at the connections between SES members and the Pilgrims Society, founded 1902 and 1903, which took control of mainstream media before WW I.
