Why Donald Trump Is Fuming Over Dr. Fauci And Dr. Birx – The List

Dr. Birx didn't get off lightly, either. The former president called her a "liar with very little credibility," whose recommendations were viewed as "pseudo-science." He also noted that Birx was a "terrible medical advisor, which is why [he] seldom followed her advice." He claimed Birx ruined the lives of children because they couldn't go to school, ruined businesses, and "killed an untold number of Americans" through lockdowns (via Politico).

But far from seeing Trump's statement as a rant against Fauci and Birx, there were those, including CNN correspondent John Harwood, who pointed out, via Twitter, that "by proudly acknowledging he overruled Fauci and Birx, Trump owns US coronavirus response. the record: more cases and deaths than any country in the world by far; more than 2x as many cases/deaths per 100K population than Canada next door; 50x death rate of South Korea." His sentiment was shared by others on social media, who felt that the former president's admission that he rejected Fauci and Birx's suggestions also meant that he was taking responsibility for the circumstances that lead to the more than half a million COVID-related deaths.
