Dr. Fauci says he’was N’t Encouraged’ into Trump’s coronavirus briefing

“I wasn’t invitedup to this stage,” Fauci told bunch Jake Tapper at a live interview less than an hour before Trump was supposed to tackle reporters from the White House briefing room in 5 pm

“I am assuming I’m going to be there since it is likely to be only a brief while and I am still here in the NIH so I am assuming I am going to be there,” he continued.

The Brooklyn-born long-time manager of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was repeatedly assaulted by the Trump government for sounding the alert on the country’s response.

The president called Fauci that an”alarmist” through an interview with Chris Wallace on”Fox News Sunday.”

Fauci, who has described the strikes against him as”eccentric,” pushed on that criticism on Monday, saying that he had been a”realist.”

Trump this week announced he was bringing the nightly briefings he held in the summit of their COVID-19 pandemic in March and April that have been suddenly stopped after he raised the potential for individuals injecting disinfectants.
