Donald Trump just unloaded on Dr. Anthony Fauci over recently disclosed emails that show what many of the doctor’s fiercest critics had known all along: Fauci is a fraud.
The former president released the following statement on the Fauci emails.
“After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do,” Trump wrote. “For instance, I closed our Borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed. The Democrats and the Fake News Media even called me a ‘xenophobe’.”
“In the end, we saw this was a life-saving decision, and likewise with closing our borders to Europe, specifically to certain heavily infected countries,” he continued. “I was later given credit, even by ‘Tony,’ for saving hundreds of thousands of lives.”
“Dr. Fauci also didn’t put an emphasis on speed of vaccine production because he thought it would take 3, 4 or maybe even 5 years to create,” Trump added. “I got it done in less than 9 months with Operation Warp Speed. In retrospect, the vaccine is saving the world.”

“Then, I placed the greatest bet in history,” he went on. “We ordered billions of dollars’ worth of vaccines before we knew it even worked. Had that not been done, our wonderful vaccines would not have been administered until October of this year. No one would’ve had the shot that has now saved the world and millions of lives!”
“Also Dr. Fauci was totally against masks when even I thought they would at least be helpful,” Trump added. “He then changed his mind completely and became a radical masker!”
“There are a lot of questions that must be answered by Dr. Fauci,” he went on. “The funding of Wuhan by the U.S. was foolishly started by the Obama administration in 2014 but ended under the Trump administration. When I heard about it, I said ‘no way’.”
“What did Dr. Fauci know about ‘gain of function’ research, and when did he know it?” Trump finally asked.
