Contrary to what Trump and his cronies have been saying, Dr. Fauci criticized the government’s work on COVID, saying the United States is ‘not doing great’ as cases surge around the country.
‘America’s Doctor’ also bluntly stated that ‘if there wasn’t such divisiveness, that we would have a more coordinated approach’ to kill the virus.
Fauci made these comments during an interview with FiveThirtyEight, reiterating that compared to other countries, ‘I don’t think you can say we’re doing great. I mean, we’re just not.’
‘We live, I mean, you have to be having blindfolds on and covering your ears to think that we don’t live in a very divisive society now, from a political standpoint,’ Fauci admitted, adding ‘We are still knee-deep in the first wave of COVID-19 infections.’
Naturally, the President disagreed with the esteemed doctor’s opinion, complaining that he thinks ‘we are in a good place,’ before adding, ‘I disagree with him.’
‘So we’ve done a good job. I think we are going to be in two, three, four weeks, by the time we next speak, I think we are going to be in very good shape’ Trump added as the US hit more than 60,000 new cases in a single day, a sad new record.
And on Fox Trump doubled down on his criticism of Fauci that Fauci “is a nice man, but he’s made a lot of mistakes.”
