The face of the coronavirus response for the United States, Dr. Fauci has been called an "alarmist" by President Trump.
President Trump has called Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, "a little bit of an alarmist". Trump dropped these comments on Fauci after he pushed back Fauci's evaluation of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States during an interview with Fox News on Sunday. Fauci has called the coronavirus situation in the United States his "worst nightmare".
The White House said that it wasn't trying to remove any credibility from Dr. Fauci, but Trump did say that Fauci has "made some mistakes". Its believed Trump was hinting back towards the start of the pandemic when Fauci said that people should not wear masks. Obviously, the recommendation of mask use has now changed completely, as Fauci himself is an avid wearer of face masks.
