President Trump on Thursday called on Infectious Diseases Specialist Dr. Anthony stared at Fawcett, calling him a “Democrat” who said he was a New York gov. Andrew is a friend of Cumono.
Earlier Thursday, Fawcett, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, described Trump’s large election rallies as a “dangerous situation” in an interview, although Trump did not directly mention the article.
Trump told supporters at a midday rally in Greenville, NC, that there has been constant misinformation about how to reduce the spread of FCOC Covid-19.
“He’s a nice guy Tony. Tony Faucy. He’s a nice guy, “said Trump. “It’s not a threat,” he said. This is not a problem. Don’t worry about it, “Trump claimed, referring to the coronavirus.
Trump added: “He said, ‘Don’t wear a mask.’ ‘Don’t wear a mask under any circumstances.’ ‘Don’t wear a mask’ – no, no, no? So we don’t wear masks. Then they say, ‘Oh, wear a mask.’ I’ve never seen, have you ever seen a contradiction? But he’s a nice guy so I keep him around, right? We’ll keep it around. “
The president accused Fauci, a national organization and director of allergies and infectious diseases, of being politically biased since 1984.
“She is a Democrat. Everyone knows that. He is a friend of Cuomo, “said Trump.
A spokesman for Fauci did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and a spokesman for Cuomo did not immediately comment on whether they were friends.
Trump echoes his earlier remarks in an interview with Newsmax, also hitting the president’s frequent targets, Cuomo, on the issue of handling the New York epidemic.
Trump began an Associated Press analysis that 11,000 residents of New York nursing homes may have died following a March 25 state rule preventing nursing homes from drawing attention to coronavirus-positive patients.
“Cuomo did the worst job of any governor in the United States. About 40,000 people died, more, and at least 11,000 – and you know I gave him this big convention center, 2,800 beds, he didn’t use it. I gave him the ship. I gave him a big hospital ship for the war … it’s incredible, they didn’t use it. Instead, they sent sick people back to nursing homes, didn’t they? That’s a disgrace, “Trump said.
Cuomo spokesman Richard Azopardi pointed out to the Post in his previous statement that “the governor has worked hard every day to save New Yorkers.”
“Give me a break – the federal government’s incompetent and troubled epidemic has killed more than 216,000 Americans,” Azopardi said. “And Trump knows all the time how deadly he was and he never set the alarm. Instead he told Americans to drink bleach and then went golfing – a lot. “
