On Monday, Donnie reportedly had a lot to say about Dr. Fauci, the man whose expert advice help navigate the country during this pandemic, and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
While on a call with campaign aides, he reportedly stated Fauci was “a disaster.” He also stated people were tired of hearing about COVID-19, according to KTVU.com.
“People are tired of Covid. People are saying, ‘Whatever, just leave us alone,’” Trump said on the call, which included members of the press. “People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots.”
The president also declared the government’s top infectious disease expert “a disaster.”
Trump reportedly also told staffers he believed he would win the presidential election.
“Trump said he believes he’s going to win, allowing that he didn’t have that same sense of confidence two weeks ago when he was hospitalized with COVID-19.
While Trump had quite a few things to reportedly say, he also agreed that during Fauci wouldn’t be a good look, according to reports.
This comes weeks after Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19.
“I feel great. I feel like perfect. I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise.”
Donnie also said he would make the medication he took (Regeneron), which has not gained government approval, free to anyone who needs it. Not giving any details about how he would do this, Regeneron said it had submitted an application to the Food and Drug Administration for emergency approval, according to The New York Times.
While explaining how much better he feels, he was adamant that this was a cure.
“I call that a cure,” said Mr. Trump, and also stating that everyone who was infected should have access to the medication and it should be “free.” He also stated that he would have it in hospitals as quickly as possible.
While Trump stated that the doses were plentiful, Regeneron said in a statement that it would initially have only enough doses for 50,000 people. It hopes to have enough for 300,000 people by the end of the year, and the medication is expected to be provided to Americans for free, according to The New York Times.
