DailyWire reports on Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, thoroughly dismissed the charges that both President Trump and CDC were responsible for the delayed testing of COVID-19, alleging it resulted from a “technical glitch” out ofthe president’s control.
“It was a complicated series of multiple things that conflated that just, you know, went the wrong way. One of them was a technical glitch that slowed things down in the beginning. Nobody’s fault. There weren’t any bad guys there. It just happened,” Fauci told Hugh Hewitt on “The Hugh Hewitt” show.
“Was the glitch or anything about the production of the test President Trump’s fault?” Hewitt asked, as reported by The Hill. “Or actually, let me put it more broadly, would every president have run into the same problem?”
“Oh, absolutely,” Fauci replied. “This has nothing to do with anybody’s fault, certainly not the president’s fault.”
The Trump administration has been severely criticized for the low number of tests being performed on COVID-19. Opponents of the president, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, have alleged that the administration rejected testing kits from the World Health Organization (W.H.O).
