In a Sunday interview with the infamous Fox News host Chris Wallace, Doctor Anthony Fauci asked for former President Donald Trump’s help after months of waging war with his policies and attempting to belittle the President.
Fauci’s comments came after Wallace showed him several clips of former Presidents who opted to take the vaccine.
“Now, conspicuous by his absence in that public service announcement was President Trump,” Wallace said. “And here’s why that was important. According to a recent poll, 49 percent of Republican men said they don’t intend to get the vaccine.”
“Doctor, how much of a difference will it make if President Trump, who was largely responsible for the success of Operation Warp Speed, how much of a difference will it make if President Trump leads a campaign for the people who are most devoted to him to actually go out and get the vaccine?” Wallace questioned.
Fauci answered by claiming that if Donald Trump would ‘campaign’ in favor of the vaccine it “would make all the difference in the world.”
“He’s a very widely popular person among Republicans, if he came out and said, go and get vaccinated, it’s really important for your health, the health of your family and the health of the country, it seems absolutely inevitable that the vast majority of people who are his close followers would listen to him,” Fauci continued to say.
“He’s such a strongly popular person. I cannot imagine that if he comes out that they would not get vaccinated. It would be very helpful to the effort for that to happen.”
“I mean clearly Operation Warp Speed started in the Trump administration. It was very successful in getting us the vaccines we have right now. It seems like an intrinsic contradiction, the fact that you had a program that was started during his presidency and he’s not out telling people to get vaccinated,” Fauci went on to say.
“I wish he would. He has such an incredible influence over people in the Republican Party. It would really be a game changer if he did,” the Doctor added.
Fauci has been a serious adversary of Former President Donald J Trump, and oftentimes criticized his every move. Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Fauci’s pleading with the former president may fall on deaf ears, however, due to repeated shots that Fauci has taken at Trump since the election.
In an interview with CNN just two days after Democrat President Joe Biden took office, Fauci suggested that Trump was not honest with the American people about the pandemic and that it “very likely” cost lives.
In an interview with The New York Times, Fauci complained that Trump was essentially asking him to compromise his integrity by “giving a false message to the world” when Trump asked him to “take a positive attitude” instead of being “pessimistic.”
Fauci attacked Trump in a separate interview on CNN where he said that it was “really almost self-evident” that Trump’s rhetoric caused the pandemic to be significantly worse.
In an MSNBC interview, Fauci said that it was “chilling” how the Trump administration allegedly “distorted” and “rejected” science.
Fauci mocked Donald Trump on several occasions for his tenacity to bring Operation Warp Speed to fruition, and now that he’s out of office, Fauci is begging Trump to advocate for the vaccine even further.
As President, Trump pushed companies to make a vaccine happen and all Fauci did was tell him how unreasonable he was. How can someone who trashed Trump BEG him to ‘market’ a vaccine that he obviously helped bring to fruition.
Is streamlining a vaccine’s creation for distribution not enough for Dr. Fauci? Apparently, not because now Dr. Fauci who doubted Trump’s vaccine delivery is practically BEGGING for Trump to ‘campaign’ for the vaccine that he helped make available.
Donald Trump doesn’t owe Dr. Fauci ANYTHING. In fact, for the extended amount of time Trump allowed Fauci to speak, maybe Fauci owes Trump for letting him in the spotlight.
