Trump’s Top Trade Advisor Rips Dr. Anthony Fauci as the White House Stands by Fauci
President Donald Trump’s top trade advisor Peter Navarro took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci in a USA Today op/ed on Tuesday.
“In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives,” Navarro wrote.
“When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry,” he continued.
“When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk. When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks,” Navarro added.
Navarro warned the public in his op/ed that Fauci “has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.”
“And when Fauci was telling the White House Coronavirus Task Force that there was only anecdotal evidence in support of hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus, I confronted him with scientific studies providing evidence of safety and efficacy. A recent Detroit hospital study showed a 50% reduction in the mortality rate when the medicine is used in early treatment,” Navarro wrote.
“Now Fauci says a falling mortality rate doesn’t matter when it is the single most important statistic to help guide the pace of our economic reopening. The lower the mortality rate, the faster and more we can open,” he added. “So when you ask me whether I listen to Dr. Fauci’s advice, my answer is: only with skepticism and caution.”
The White House is distancing themselves from Navarro’s scathing op/ed against Dr. Fauci, with the White House spokesman claiming that President Donald Trump values Dr. Fauci’s supposed expertise.
The Peter Navarro op-ed didn’t go through normal White House clearance processes and is the opinion of Peter alone. @realDonaldTrump values the expertise of the medical professionals advising his Administration.

“To the notion that there’s opposition research and that there’s Fauci versus the president, it couldn’t be further from the truth,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said to reporters during a Monday press briefing. “Dr. Fauci and the President have always had a very good working relationship.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Dr. Fauci may have funded the research that caused the COVID-19 pandemic to begin with:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, leader of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is denying the possibility that the coronavirus pandemic could have originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated-the way the mutations have naturally evolved. A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists have said that everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that it evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Fauci said during an interview with National Geographic that was published on Monday.
After Fauci was asked about whether a virus that was wild could escape from a lab, he continued to spin and deflect blame.
“But that means it was in the wild to begin with. That’s why I don’t get what they’re talking about [and] why I don’t spend a lot of time going in on this circular argument,” said Fauci…
Big League Politics reported last week about how Fauci’s bureaucracy sent money to the Wuhan Institute for the stated purpose of funding coronavirus research in bats shortly before the pandemic shook the world.
It was revealed that the NIAID supported the $3.7 million grant in 2019 which was approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the Wuhan Institute after another project costing the same figure expired. The federal bureaucracy has subsidized this kind of research with the taxpayer footing the bill to the tune of $7.4 million.
Even U.S. intelligence is beginning to admit that it is possible that the virus emerged from a laboratory. Big League Politics has been reporting on this possibility for months, and now even mainstream fake news outlets like the Washington Post are acknowledging this could be the case.
Condemning Dr. Fauci for his role in the pandemic may not be enough. Criminal charges may be in order for this mad scientist who wants to keep the public under lockdown for as long as possible.
