Donald Trump says Dr. Fauci is WRONG for saying that the U.S. is seeing a sharp rise in COVID-19

While he was busy spending most of Saturday golfing, President Donald Trump did take some time to slam infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci on Twitter

Trump retweeted a CBS News tweet that featured a clip of Dr. Fauci speaking at congress on the surge of coronavirus cases in several states across the United States. 

His rebuke comes as the country surpasses 4,579,000 COVID-19 cases and more than 153,000 deaths.

‘Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000,’ Trump said in the Saturday afternoon tweet. 

‘If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!’ 

Trump tweeted just moments after her was pictured enjoying yet another day out on the golf course at the Trump National Golf Club.

During Friday’s House committee hearing, Fauci explained why the shutdown didn’t have as much of an impact as desired in comparison to other countries. 

‘I stand by my previous statement that the increase in cases was due to a number of factors, one of which was that in the attempt to reopen, that in some situations, states did not abide strictly by the guidelines that the taskforce and the White House had put out and others that even did abide by it, the people in the state actually were congregating in crowds and not wearing masks,’ Fauci said, when asked by Rep. Jim Clyburn to address the president’s claims in a tweet addressing the representative.

Fauci said that while other countries’ shutdowns actually shut down about 95 per cent of activity, the best the U.S. got to was about 50 per cent. 

‘There was such a diversity of response in this country from different states that we really did not have a unified bringing everything down,’ he said.
