Trump is speaking out against Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx for making untrue statements about the COVID response.

FOX News reports:
Trump accuses Fauci, Birx of ‘trying to reinvent history’ on COVID-19 response
Former President Donald Trump slammed Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx on Monday, accusing the infectious disease experts of “trying to reinvent history” in televised interviews detailing their roles in combating the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump spoke out after Fauci and Birx, who both served as key members of his administration’s coronavirus task force, were interviewed for a CNN special titled “COVID WAR: The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out.”…
In a lengthy statement, Trump accused both of his former colleagues of being “self-promoters.”
“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,” Trump said. “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.”…
He added that Fauci “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 goalposts 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.”
People are so tired of Fauci.
If only he did this 10 months ago
