The COVID-19 pandemic has been raging in the United States for more than a year. For most of the year, Donald Trump tried to downplay the severity of the pandemic and offer terrible advice to his followers.
On Sunday evening, CNN broadcast a town hall with many doctors who had advised Trump. And according to Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci, Trump’s behavior behind the scenes was even worse. On Monday, an angry Trump released a statement blowing up the two doctors.
Trump’s statement began: “Based on their interviews, I felt it was time to talk about it Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, two self-promoters trying to reinvent history to cover up their bad instincts and flawed recommendations that luckily I’ve almost always turned upside down. They had bad policy decisions that would have left our country open to China and others, closed our economy to reopening, and years removed from an approved vaccine – which would have put millions of lives at risk. “
The former president then focused on Birx. He went on, “Dr. Birx is a proven liar with very little credibility. The states that followed their lead, such as California, had worse results for Covid and ruined the lives of countless children from being unable to go to school, ruined many businesses and untold numbers of Americans killed by the lockdowns themselves. ”
Little and little Trump then tore into Fauci and wrote: “Dr. Fauci is the king of flip flops and moves the goal posts to make him look as good as possible. He fought me so hard because he wanted to keep our country open to countries like China. “
