National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr Anthony Fauci praised Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and slammed President Trump for his coronavirus response plans just days before the election.
Fauci said The Washington Post Friday, that America will suffer “a lot of harm” in the coming winter months due to a second wave of the pandemic.
“We’re going to have a lot of trouble. This is not a good situation, ”said Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force. “All the stars are aligned in the wrong place during the fall and winter season, people congregate at home indoors. You probably couldn’t be more badly positioned. “
But Fauci went on to suggest that Trump is to blame for an upcoming second wave and that Biden is “taking him seriously.”
Of The Washington Post:
Asked about the difference in their approaches, Fauci said Biden’s campaign “takes it seriously from a public health perspective.” Trump, Fauci said, “looks at it from a different perspective.” He said that this prospect was “the economy and the reopening of the country”.
The White House hit back at the Fauci political platform, claiming that Fauci “making his political leanings known” days before the election is indicative of “swamp” behavior.
“It is unacceptable and in violation of all standards for Dr Fauci, a senior member of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force and someone who has praised President Trump’s actions throughout this pandemic, to choose three days before an election for politics, ”said the White House MP. Judd Deere press officer.
“As a member of the task force, Dr Fauci has a duty to voice his concerns or push for a change in strategy, but he has not done so, choosing instead to criticize the president in the media and to publicize his political leanings by praising the President’s Opponent – exactly what the American people expect from The Swamp, ”Deere concluded.
