BREAKING: White House Issues Statement on “Time to Fire Fauci” Tweet Controversy

The White House has issued an official statement on the controversy started when President Trump shared a tweet with the #FireFauci hashtag.

Sunday Evening, President Trump re-tweeted a tweet that includes the message “Time to #Fire Fauci.”

California House candidate DeaAnna Lorraine wrote:

Fauci is now saying that had Trump listened to the medical experts earlier he could’ve saved more lives.

Fauci was telling people on February 29th that there was nothing to worry about and it posed no threat to the US public at large. Time to #FireFauci

President Trump shared the tweet and added:

Feb: Fauci told us to continue going to gyms, malls, and the movies

Mar: Fauci said going on cruises was OK

He’s been wrong every step of the way and is now blaming @realDonaldTrump for his failures.

Fauci was the one who told us and @realDonaldTrump back in January that COVID posed little to no risk to Americans.

Now he’s blaming Trump for his horribly wrong call.

DeAnna Lorraine, who is running for Congress in Nancy Pelosi’s district tweeted:

In the 2016 election cycle, Dr. Fauci’s wife donated to a presidential candidate.

It’s documented.

Can anyone guess who she donated to?

Paul Sperry tweeted:

***BREAKING NEWS*** FEC records show the wife of NIH Dr. Anthony Fauci, who’s clashed with Trump over COVID-19 strategy, is a Democrat who donated at least $1,200 to Hillary for America & Hillary Victory Fund in 2016 campaign vs. Trump. Dr. Fauci wrote 2013 email praising Hillary
