Trump Unloads on Anthony Fauci, Calling Him a 'Disaster' and an 'Idiot' About Coronavirus - 2020-10-19
President Donald Trump on Monday unloaded on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious-disease expert, complaining that those working to curtail the coronavirus pandemic that has killed almost 220,000 Americans are all "idiots."
"People are tired of COVID. I have these huge rallies. People are saying whatever. Just leave us alone. They're tired of it. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots," Trump said during a campaign call from his hotel in Las Vegas.
The president then called Fauci "a disaster" and lamented that he would receive lots of negative press if he fired the public-health expert because he is a "nice guy."
