Donald Trump is doing everything he can to keep the people of America scared and in danger. The Donald has not only tried to end the quarantine a full month before health officials say he should, but he is misleading the public at every turn.
Anthony Fauci has become a very trusted staple on cable news as Americans scramble to get the latest information about the deadly pandemic happening right now. Fauci has been at the frontlines, standing right beside the president, making sure that at least some truths get through.
Now, Fauci is revealing that the coronavirus task force had to fight Trump to get him to give up on his ignorant plan to reopen the country by Easter.
Fauci just went on CNN’s New Day, where he said:
“We felt that if we prematurely pulled back, we would only form an acceleration or rebound of something, which would put you behind where you were before, and that’s a reason why we argued strongly with the president that he not withdraw those guidelines, And he did listen.”

“When you look at the kinetics of the outbreak, the patterns that are going on now, even as we speak, they were not going to reach a peak and turnaround the way we wanted to, within the time frame originally estimated.”
“He looked at them, he understood them, and he shook his head and said, ‘I guess we got to do it.'”
According to CNN, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator said this to Savannah Guthrie:
“This virus, we think, can spread with a lot of asymptomatic and mild cases. It’s not until it gets into the vulnerable groups that you start to see the hospitalizations.”
“If you wait for that, if the metros and rural areas don’t take care now, by the time you see it, it has penetrated your community pretty significantly. And that’s what we’re concerned about. And that’s why you have to prepare, even though you think it’s not there,”
People are going wild on Twitter over the video of Fauci, and you can see the top reactions left on the tweet below:
