President Trump and senior White House advisers are starting to lose patience with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as he continues to publicly correct Trump when he makes false statements about the coronavirus, The New York Times reports.
Fauci has been a familiar face at coronavirus briefings. In recent days, Fauci and Trump have disagreed on how long it will take for a coronavirus vaccine to be ready for use and whether an anti-malaria drug could help certain coronavirus patients. Over the weekend, Fauci told Science magazine that even when they aren’t on the same page, if it’s a “substantive issue,” Trump “does listen to what I say.” He also admitted that when Trump says something that’s not true, “I can’t jump in front of the microphone and push him down. Okay, he said it. Let’s try and get it corrected for the next time.”
Multiple people close to Trump told the Times‘ Maggie Haberman that they consider such remarks as digs against Trump, and they don’t know how Fauci has enough time to even sit down for an interview. Although he may be getting under Trump’s skin, the president is aware that a vast majority of the public trusts Fauci, and the benefits of having him in his orbit outweigh the negatives, the Times reports.
As I reported in my previous blog “Back in 2017, Dr. Fauci publicly predicted there would be a pandemic during Trump’s presidency.
You hear Dr. Birx and others are overwhelmingly concerned a few old people will die in nursing homes. Well, the virus has hit many nursing homes and their residents are dying at a rapid pace. In Andover, New Jersey, authorities were called to a nursing home where they found 15 bodies stored in a basement morgue that was built for four people.
Right now the massive shut down and shelter in place is based purely on immunologist viewpoint. It’s not balanced and it certainly is not AMERICAN. It is resulting in more domestic violence cases, child abuse and an increase in suicides and alcoholism.
Trump should alter his plans now and say: “I’m going to bring in economists, psychologists, and other professionals to tally up the human toll to save a small percentage of the population in nursing homes
Part of the new analysis must contain: How many suicides will result if we keep this locked up? (due to bankruptcies and other consequences)
How many divorces will result if we keep this locked up?
How many court cases for Domestic Violence will result if we keep this locked up?
How many child abuse cases will emerge.?
What are all the other social evils that will manifest if this nonsense continues?
There are many, and we have already done enough social distancing. The nursing homes are ALREADY INFECTED.
Open it up, Balance it out. One factor should not be the deciding factor. Herd inoculation is quite effective. Look at Sweden. They didn’t shut down and they are doing fine. People want to work.
Why are they doing this? Big Pharma lost the election (Hillary was their candidate). They need this pandemic to get rid of Trump and impose their socialist/communist will on the people. I think Trump senses this but someone needs to get to him and say, bring in OTHERS for advice.
It was Pelosi’s Shampeachment that distracted public attention.
This is on Pelosi. She picked the absolute wrong time to do a Shampeachment. All that blood is on her hands now. All those old folks homes and nursing homes got contaminated because she was doing a Shampeachment up to February 5th even though Trump had closed down China travel on January 31st.
Yes, Pelosi, you got blood on your hands. You own it. And she has the gall to call Trump a weak leader after all the evil she and her democrat cohorts produce on a daily basis.
President Trump tweeted late Sunday night, as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and congressional leaders were furiously working to iron out differences in a massive coronavirus stimulus/bailout package. “I watch and listen to the Fake News, CNN, MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, some of FOX (desperately & foolishly pleading to be politically correct), the @nytimes, & the @washingtonpost, and all I see is hatred of me at any cost,” he tweeted. “Don’t they understand that they are destroying themselves?”
Trump needs to be informed by someone he needs to make a tough choice and put out the right language. Democrats will FLAME SPRAY Trump no matter what he does. They are all so filled with hate and rage all because their gal Hillary lost an election.
Prior to this pandemic, Trump did so many great things for this country while the media purposely didn’t report any of it and the Dems just sat on their hands instead of offering to help and complained and called him names, lied, smeared and besmirched him.
Here is just a partial list of what Trump accomplished:
* Trump lowered the FICA tax so people had more money in their paychecks,
*He lowered the big business tax from 35% to 21% and small business tax from 21% to15% which caused companies to move back here from overseas in droves and build and hire people here and at higher rates too. These were the jobs Obama said were never coming back. Hilary was going to raise that tax to 40% which would have caused massive lay-offs.
Under Obama, 16 million people were in poverty and 8 million people on food stamps. Trump created seven million new jobs with his policies of lowering taxes thus causing the lowest unemployment numbers in all demographics in 50 years bringing unemployment down to 3.5%.
*He approved drilling in ANWR and got the Keystone pipeline under construction from Canada to Mexico that employed 40,000 people and opened the Dakota pipeline thus making us energy independent for the first time in 70 years so we are not dependent on OPEC anymore. Consequently, prices at the pump came down.
*He got our embassy in Isreal moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem that all previous presidents said should have been done but failed to do it.
*Trump doubled everyone’s tax deductions from under Obama so people paid less taxes and saved more money.
*He built up our military that Obama reduced to pre-WW11 status.
*Countries were starting to respect us again.
This is just a partial list of his 300 accomplishments. And where were the Dems and media during all this? Why they were just seething with hate and rage, censoring everything he did and tried to block and overthrow him every step of the way offering nothing in return.
Even during this pandemic, Trump continued helping the American people while the Dems and media just sat on their hands and attacked and tried to tear the country and this president down. Democrats nationwide have seized upon the coronavirus crisis as a way to push through certain agendas they’ve been unable to achieve before. Just getting congress to pass a stimulus package was like trying to pull hen’s teeth as they stalled and stalled trying to pack it with tons of pork while the people suffered.
Andrew Cuomo said he needed 14,000 ventilators so Trump got them for him and when he found he didn’t need that many because he discovered a warehouse full of them he didn’t realize he had Trump said he would send them to states and other countries who needed them.
Trump got CEO’s from major companies including Mike Lindell from My Pillow to come to the white house and pledge to make hospital gowns, masks, ventilators and other equipment for hospital workers and first responders across the country. Mike Lindell said that 75% of his company would produce masks and hospital gowns for people all over the country.
Trump set up the Javits Center in New York with 2000 makeshift beds for victims of the virus and got the two hospital ships to come on the East coast in New York and West Coast in Calif. Rachel Maddow on MSNBC said it would take weeks to get them here and Trump got them here in one week.
The democrats are the real weak leaders like you Nancy Pelosi not Trump so don’t go calling him a weak leader. Trump is a businessman and a businessman gets things done while a politician like Pelosi and the Dems just talk the talk. As Trump tweeted, “They are destroying themselves.”
