LISTEN: Fauci says he trusts scientists in China to be honest and forthcoming on the origins of COVID-19

Appearing on “The Joe Madison Show,” Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked “Do you trust the scientists, your colleagues? You have to work with them in China. Do you trust them to be honest and forthcoming?”

“Well, yeah. Yeah, I think that you have to have a difference between the scientists in China and the Chinese government,” Fauci responded.

“I don’t have much insight into the latter. We’ve worked with Chinese scientists for decades and decades, in a collaborative manner with influenza, with bird flu, with a variety of other diseases,” he continued.

“And our experience with the scientists has been that they have been of good faith, they’re talented, many of them have made major accomplishments in science, and that’s the reason why we’ve worked with them,” he added.
