Fauci says 'no' to serving under Donald Trump should he win a second term

White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would not continue to serve in his role if Donald Trump was elected to a second term as president.

“Bien, No,” Fauci said with a chuckle when asked by CNN’s Jim Acosta on Sunday if he would stay on in his post if the Republican former President were to return to the White House. Trump has teased a 2024 run para oficina, though he has not officially launched a second campaign for president.
Acosta also asked Fauci if he would have confidence in Trump’s ability to respond to Covid-19, if it’s still a threat, or another public health emergency.
    “Si miras el historial de cuál fue la respuesta durante la administración, creo, sabes, at best you could say it wasn’t optimal,” Fauci dijo. “And I think just history will speak for itself about that.
      Fauci, who is also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was a leading member of Trump’s White House coronavirus taskforce as the virus took hold in the US in 2020. Él tiene served under seven different US presidents.
        Fauci often disagreed with the Trump administration over its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, about which the then-President promoted false claims and often downplayed as the deadly virus infected millions of Americans. Fauci also gave medical advice, como el uso de máscara, that Trump and some in his administration often ignored.
        Trump attacked Fauci publicly, suggesting at one point he was considering firing him, and by the end of his presidency, Fauci was largely sidelined.
            Fauci admitted last year that it was “incómodo” when drugs such as hydroxychloroquine were promoted as treatments for Covid-19 when it wasn’t evidence-based, and that he takesno pleasure at all in being in a situation of contradicting the President.
            He called it aliberating feelingto be able totalk about what you know, what the evidence, what the science is,” without fear of repercussion.
