The latest smear from the Democratic Party is President Trump’s downplaying of the coronavirus. As a President, he was trying to keep down panic.
President Trump formed a task force, declared a public health emergency, activated the CDC, and cut travel with China before there was any community spread. The entire time this was happening the Democrats were attacking him with hysterical “xenophobia” labels and calling him racist.
Dr. Anthony Fauci just destroyed the heart of this left-winged argument and told Fox’s John Roberts that he didn’t see any discrepancies between what they were telling the President and what Trump was telling the public. Dr. Fauci said that he wanted to make the people feel better but always relayed what they were telling him.
“I didn’t get any sense that he was distorting anything. I mean in my discussions with him, they were always straightforward about the concerns that we had. We related that to him and when he would go out, I’d hear him discussing the same sort of things. He would often say, we just got through with a briefing with the group from the task force and would talk about it,” Fauci said.
Contrary to what the media claims, President Trump has always been consistent with what he says and listened to what the health professionals were saying. His quick response to cutting travel with China saved many lives, a move that Joe Biden had criticized early on.
Roberts also asked Dr. Fauci about Bob Woodward’s new book that talks about Trump’s downplaying of the coronavirus. The book includes Dr. Fauci on being quoted making several disparaging remarks about President Trump. He said he doesn’t recall making any of those comments cited in the book and would question that account.
“I mean I don’t really want to get involved in the kind of stuff. That is very distracting to the kind of things that I’m trying to do, and that we’re all trying to do, with this outbreak,” Fauci said. It’s clear that the book came from other sources and nothing direct. Basically more fake news nonsense.
Whether or not Woodward wanted more book sales, Fauci just pierced it. Nothing was ever downplayed or distorted on President Trump’s part. It’s just another twist in favor of the Biden Campaign. This type of nonsense won’t move the votes one way or another. People have seen the media bias against Trump and the outrageous claims by the left.
What has helped President Trump hold his base is that he has delivered far and above what any conservative expected. The Democrats are just mad about that.
