Mark Levin Reminds Dr. Fauci That He DID Praise the Trump Administration’s Coronavirus Response

The 30-second ad from Mr. Trump’s reelection campaign praises the president’s handling of the coronavirus crisis and includes an edited clip of Fauci purportedly saying “I can’t imagine that … anybody could be doing more,” seemingly in reference to how Mr. Trump addressed the pandemic.

The good doctor is now pushing back, saying the comments were taken out of context and that the use of his remarks was tantamount to an endorsement for president, something he says he has never done.

“In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a statement to CBS News. “The comments attributed to me without my permission in the GOP campaign ad were taken out of context from a broad statement I made months ago about the efforts of federal public health officials.”
