(PatriotWise.com)- President Donald Trump will reportedly hone in on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in a series of rallies he has planned for the rest of the year. Newsmax reported that Fauci, who is currently at the center of a huge scandal over his alleged funding of Gain of Function virus research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, will likely become the target of the former president.
It stems from comments made to Axios by Jason Miller, a senior advisor to the former president, who said that President Trump’s base had a “visceral” reaction to Dr. Fauci, his recommendations on how to handle the pandemic, and the recent publishing of thousands of emails which reveal his hypocritical position on masks.
“People see Anthony Fauci and they think of shuttered businesses, lost school,” Miller to Axios.
While Dr. Anthony Fauci worked under the Trump administration as the head of the COVID-19 White House Task Force, he and President Trump regularly butted heads. The former president would regularly urge that the response to the pandemic could not be worse than the pandemic itself, while Fauci advocated the closing of schools and businesses and flip-flopped on mask-wearing several times.
Since President Joe Biden entered the White House, Fauci’s hypocrisy has been further exposed, and last month when he denied sending National Institute of Health funding to the Wuhan lab during a Senate hearing, Senator Rand Paul eviscerated him for “lying under oath.”
It has since been revealed that the National Institute of Health sent $600,000 in funding to an organization named EcoHealth, which in turn funded virus modification research in Wuhan.
Trump is reportedly expected to slam Fauci and the Biden administration in the two rallies he has planned for this summer, both of which will take place before Independence Day.
