Charlotte, NC — On Monday, former President Donald Trump said he has had enough. He said it was time to respond to the recent statements by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, who he called two self-promoters who were trying to reinvent history in order to protect themselves.
Trump’s statement was released through his office where he talked about his experience working with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. He said that if he had listened to them, our country would have been much worse off. He said that they would have allowed the country to stay open, closed our economy further, and left us years away from an approved vaccine.
As he continued his comments, he spoke specifically about Dr. Fauci’s comments on CNN. He said that he took the lead over Dr. Fauci to press for the vaccines to be completed in record time. He also shared that Facui fought against Trump’s decision to close travel early in the pandemic, and ridiculed Fauci for his continued flip-flops in moving the goal posts.
He also spoke about Dr. Birx, calling her a liar with little credibility. He said that Fauci talked negatively about Birx and asked not to be in the same room with her. He shared that the seldom followed her advice. He also called out her hypocrisy in calling for Americans to not travel for the holidays, while she traveled to see her family.
Finally, he said there was no difficult phone call as Birx described. He said that the only difficult phone call was to discuss her horrible policies that would have left our nation in much worse shape. He ended by saying the only reason he kept the two on staff was because they had worked for the government so long.
A response from Trump is not surprising given the recent statements by Fauci and Birx. Both have been critical of the former President amid the media’s continued push to blame Trump for the coronavirus pandemic. They continue to ignore the failures of President Joe Biden as he continues to follow the coronavirus pandemic plan that Trump left for him on entering office.

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 for their bad instincts and faulty recommendations, which I fortunately almost always overturned. They had bad policy decisions that would have left our country open to China and others, closed to reopening our economy, and years away from an approved vaccine — putting millions of lives at risk.
We developed American vaccines by an American President in record time, nine months, which is saving the entire world. We bought billions of dollars of these vaccines on a calculated bet that they would work, perhaps the most important bet in the history of the world. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx moved far too slowly, and if it were up to them we’d currently be locked in our basements as our country suffered through a financial depression. Families, and children in particular, would be suffering the mental strains of this disaster like never before.
In a fake interview last night on CNN, Dr. Fauci, who said he was an athlete in college but couldn’t throw a baseball even close to home plate, it was a “roller,” tried to take credit for the vaccine, when in fact he said it would take three to five years, and probably longer, to have it approved. Dr. Fauci was incapable of pressing the FDA to move it through faster. I was the one to get it done, and even the fake news media knows and reports this.
Dr. Fauci is also the king of “flip-flops” and moving the goal posts to make himself look as good as possible. He fought me so hard because he wanted to keep our country open to countries like China. I closed it against his strong recommendation, which saved many lives. Dr. Fauci also said we didn’t need to wear masks, then a few months later he said we needed to wear masks, and now, two or three of them. Fauci spent U.S. money on the Wuhan lab in China — and we now know how that worked out.
Dr. Birx is a proven liar with very little credibility left. Many of her recommendations were viewed as “pseudo-science,” and Dr. Fauci would always talk negatively about her and, in fact, would ask not to be in the same room with her. The States who followed her lead, like California, had worse outcomes on Covid, and ruined the lives of countless children because they couldn’t go to school, ruined many businesses, and an untold number of Americans who were killed by the lockdowns themselves. Dr. Birx was a terrible medical advisor, which is why I seldom followed her advice. Her motto should be “Do as I say, not as I do.” Who can forget when Dr. Birx gave a huge mandate to the people of our Nation to not travel, and then traveled a great distance to see her family for Thanksgiving — only to have them call the police and turn her in? She then, embarrassingly for her, resigned.
Finally, Dr. Birx says she can’t hear very well, but I can. There was no “very difficult” phone call, other than Dr. Birx’s policies that would have led us directly into a COVID caused depression. She was a very negative voice who didn’t have the right answers. Time has proven me correct. I only kept Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx on because they worked for the U.S. government for so long — they are like a bad habit!
