On Wednesday, President Trump publicly voiced his disagreements with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and his melancholic warnings about reopening schools in the fall.
Speaking with Maria Bartiromo of FOX Business, President Trump hailed Fauci as a “very good person,” while saying schools need to open “quickly” and safely.
“So [Dr.] Anthony [Fauci] is a good person, a very good person – I’ve disagreed with him,” Trump said. “We have to get the schools open, we have to get our country open, we have to open our country. Now, we want to do it safely, but we also want to do it as quickly as possible, we can’t keep going on like this … You’re having bedlam already in the streets, you can’t do this. We have to get it open. I totally disagree with him on schools.”
