President Trump has re-tweeted a tweet that includes the message “Time to #Fire Fauci.”
Former House candidate DeAnna 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:
Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you @OANN
This is the conversation DeAnna Lorraine appears to be referring to.
“Obviously you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives,” Fauci said. “Obviously, no one is going to deny that. But what goes into those kinds of decisions is complicated.”
"We make a recommendation," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, when asked by @JakeTapper about reports that he and other top officials called for social distancing in February. "Often the recommendation is taken. Sometimes it's not. But it is what it is. We are where we are right now." pic.twitter.com/sw8xYZILB4
