Trump Opens Up About Why He Didn’t Fire Fauci During Pandemic
During a radio show on Wednesday, former President Donald Trump opened up to why he didn’t fire Dr. Fauci during his administration.
“First of all, he’s civil service, and you’re not allowed to fire him” Trump said. “But forget that because I don’t necessarily go by everything … but Dr. Fauci would tell me things, and I wouldn’t do them in many cases. But also, he wasn’t a big player in my administration. Dr. Fauci became a big player in the administration of Biden. He’s a very big player in Biden’s administration.”
Many think that Trump not firing Dr. Fauci was the biggest mistake he made during his time as President.
Trump also used this time to attack his biggest Republican candidate, Ron DeSantis, saying “He said he wouldn’t let anybody come in. He shut down his beaches. He shut down the entire state. He tries … he has a selective memory. He shut down. [Gov.] Henry McMaster didn’t shut down South Carolina. [Gov.] Kristi Noem didn’t shut down South Dakota.”
Trump continued, “He shut down Florida. It was tight as a drum. He had vax lines. He was vaxxing everything. Now, he talks about the vaccinations this and that.”
As the GOP primary race continues to heat up, it seems like many will use Trump’s response to Covid-19 as a way to attack him.
