Dr. Fauci Details Horrific Death Threats Received During 2020

Fauci said that during his work with the White House Coronavirus Task Force, he "started getting anxious that this was not going in the right direction - the anecdotally driven situations, the minimisation, the president surrounding himself with people saying things that didn't make any scientific sense".

"This morning I listened to your interview on The Daily, which is the New York Times daily podcast".

One source said Trump feels "people are working to downgrade his legacy out of hatred." .

According to a report from the Daily Beast, Donald Trump has been busy in Mar-a-Lago watching clips of Dr. Anthony Fauci talk about the failings of the Trump-era White House task force that worked on the coronavirus pandemic, with the ex-president frustrated he can't fire back.

Since Trump was relieved of the power - and the bully pulpit - of the presidency last week as President Joe Biden moved into the Oval Office, Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx have been regulars on television talking about the roadblocks they faced as they led the battle against COVID-19.

But it seems the filter is off now that Biden's boss.

Fauci told CNN in a Friday interview that Trump "very likely" cost American lives by spreading lies about the pandemic.

He even earns more than the president.

The top medical adviser on COVID-19 issues is now working with now sworn-in US President Joe Biden on the government's response to the pandemic.

Trump is also angry that he can't tweet about Fauci because his Twitter account remains permanently suspended in the wake of the Capitol riot, The Daily Beast reported.

The first problem is that Trump would get ideas about the coronavirus and how to treat it from friends and acquaintances, and he would believe their evidence-free opinions, Fauci said. Biden, on the other hand, is trying to find more ways the federal government can intervene to curb the spread of the virus, from requiring masks on mass transit to ramping up vaccine disbursement. But once he started going to the White House "very, very frequently" to advise about the pandemic, things started going wrong between him and Trump nearly immediately.
