Former President Trump is giving his take on thousands of Dr. Fauci’s emails, which were published this week. Fauci was on the Coronavirus Taskforce during Trump’s administration.
“After viewing these emails, our Nation is fortunate I did not do what Dr. Fauci asked me to do. I closed our Border to China early despite him not wanting it closed. The media and Democrats even called me ‘xenophobic.’ We saw this as a life-saving choice, and closing our border to Europe, especially to certain very infected nations,”,., Trump said in his statement.
“I was given credit later, even by ‘Tony,’ for saving thousands of people. Dr. Fauci also did not stress fast vaccine creation because he believed it would take us up to 5 years to do. I got it done in under 9 months. Had this not been accomplished, our great vaccines would not have been given until October of this year or much later.”
“Dr. Fauci was also completely against masks when even I believed they would at least be somewhat helpful. He then changed course entirely and became a radical masker!” Trump said. “There are many questions that should be answered by Dr. Fauci. The funding of China’s Wuhan lab was foolishly started by Obama in 2014 but ended under the my Administration. I said “no way.” What did Fauci know about “gain of function” studies being done, and when?”
Trump then ended with a comment on China and the potential source of the pandemic.
“Everyone is starting to say I was right about the China Virus coming from the Lab. The discussions between Dr. Fauci and China can’t be ignored. China should give us Ten Trillion Dollars for the destruction they have caused!” he said.
