DONALD Trump released a scathing statement slamming Dr Anthony Fauci and Dr Deborah Birx on Tuesday.
The former president called Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, the “king of flip-flops, and slammed Birx, who served as his coronavirus response coordinator, as a “liar.”
Trump’s comments come after both doctors spoke about missteps the Trump administration made while handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Based on their interviews, I felt it was time to speak up about Dr Fauci and Dr Birx, two self-promoters trying to reinvent history to cover up their bad instincts and faulty recommendations, which I fortunately almost always overturned,” the statement begins.
He continued to slam the health professionals for supporting plans that would have left the American economy closed and the country “years away from an approved vaccine — putting millions of lives at risk.”
