Former President Donald Trump Reveals Why He Didn’t Fire Dr. Anthony Fauci
In a recent interview, Donald Trump shared his thoughts on why he didn’t fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. According to Trump, he was “not actually allowed to fire him,” but he made it clear that he would have done it anyway.
The interview took place on Fox News with anchor Bret Baier, and Trump didn’t shy away from discussing his accomplishments. He mentioned that people often tell him he saved 100 million lives worldwide, but he humbly stated, “I don’t even talk about it.”
When Baier asked why he doesn’t talk about it, Trump responded, “As a Republican, it’s not a great thing to talk about because, for some reason, it’s just not.” Baier probed further, asking, “For some reason?” to which Trump replied, “Yeah, for some reason. Because, people love the vaccines, and people hate the vaccines. But, conservatives aren’t… and I understand both sides of it, by the way. I understand both sides very well. What I didn’t do is the mandates — the mandates and the vaccines don’t go.”
Trump quickly shifted the conversation to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, accusing him of being fond of Fauci. Baier countered, saying, “Sure, but you didn’t fire him. You listened to him, you kept him on.”
“You’re not actually allowed to fire him,” Trump clarified, “but I wouldn’t let that usually get in my way. You know, it’s one of those things. But you have a lot of people that love the vaccines, I mean, you do. They happen to be more Democrat than they are Republican.”
