On Thursday, the former United States President Donald Trump criticized White House medical adviser and infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, for early misinformation on the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump also demanded China pay the U.S. $10 trillion for the destruction and death they caused in the country. The former president shared a statement on his Save America website in which he hit Fauci after the release by news agencies of thousands of emails Dr. Fauci sent and received early last year.

According to the emails, as a director of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases, Fauci was aware in January 2021 that some features of the COVID-19 possibly look engineered and suggested the Chinese Wuhan lab leak theory may have some validity. Trump further stated that after seeing the emails, America is lucky because he didn’t do what Fauci wanted him to do.
Tony Gave Credit to Trump for Saving Hundreds of Thousands of Lives
Trump said that he closed American borders to China at the initial stages of the virus even though he did not want them to close. But the Fake News Media and the Democratic party even called him a xenophobe. In the end, his decision comes as a life-saving decision, and likewise with the closing of the country’s border to European countries, specifically to specific heavily infected nations.
Later Tony gave him credit for saving hundreds of thousands of human lives. In addition, Mr. Fauci stressed swift vaccine production because he thought it would take three, four, or even five years to create. But under his administration, scientists made it less than nine months with Operation Warp Speed. In the survey, the COVID-19 vaccine is saving the world.
Trump further added that he then placed the greatest bet in history because they ordered billions of dollars worth of vaccines before knowing their efficacy. Moreover, the former president mocked Fauci for his early advice that face masks would not be helpful against coronavirus, only to change positions after mentioning new statistics showing they would be helpful.
