Trump will not fire Anthony Fauci despite #FireFauci retweet: White House
President Trump won’t fire White House coronavirus task force member Anthony Fauci despite sharing a tweet with the hashtag #FireFauci, a spokesman said on Monday.
“This media chatter is ridiculous – President Trump is not firing Dr. Fauci,” said White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), chairwoman of the House Oversight Committee, said, “Trump is lashing out at Dr. Fauci for speaking the truth.”
“In times of crisis, we need voices of reason and sound medical advice from experts,” Maloney tweeted. “Silencing Fauci and other medical professionals only does a disservice to the American people.”
