Dr. Anthony Fauci is not known as a fan of Donald Trump.
Fauci spent all of 2020 undermining Donald Trump and working to help elect Joe Biden.
But now Dr. Fauci told CNN the greatest reason ever to re-elect Donald Trump in 2024.
Dr. Fauci serves as Joe Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor.
Fauci has been instrumental in shaping the disastrous response to COVID that has seen more Americans die on Joe Biden’s watch than Donald Trump’s, despite the fact that multiple vaccines were not widely available until after Joe Biden took office.
But in an interview on CNN, Dr. Fauci told host Jim Acosta that he would not remain in the administration if Donald Trump wins the White House in 2024.
“If Trump were to return to the White House as President, and COVID is still a threat or there is some other public health emergency, would you have confidence in his ability — would you have confidence in his ability to deal with a pandemic of this nature?” host Jim Acosta asked Dr. Fauci. “Would you want to stay on in your post?”
Dr. Fauci responded by saying he would resign from his position rather than work for Trump again.
Fauci then demonstrated why fewer and fewer Americans view him as a trusted authority by launching into a partisan attack on the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic – a response that was shaped in large part by Dr. Fauci’s disastrous advice.
“Well, no to the second question,” Fauci responded. “The first question, if you look at the history of what the [COVID-19] response was during the [Trump] administration, I think at best you could say it wasn’t optimal.”
“And I think just history will speak for itself about that,” Dr. Fauci concluded.
Dr. Fauci still supports lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine requirements.
The idea of Dr. Fauci quitting government service if Donald Trump wins a second term would ironically serve as a major selling point for Trump’s expected 2024 re-election campaign.
It would also give Trump a chance to correct one of the worst mistakes of his Presidency.
Dr. Fauci’s “15 days to slow the spread” lockdown ended up destroying the economy and damaging Trump’s re-election chances.
Donald Trump can right that wrong by winning in 2024 and forcing Dr. Fauci into retirement.
