In a recent interview with Politico that took place at Fauci’s office on the National Institutes of Health Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, Fauci stated that the United States – and the rest of the globe – will have to coexist with coronavirus for a considerable amount of time.
He stated that with what we now have, he believes that we are practically in a stable state.
Fauci also replied to requests from Republicans in Congress to probe his leadership and COVID-19 response in the event that Republicans win the majority in one or both chambers of Congress as a result of the midterm elections this year.
According to Fox, Fauci was quoted saying “They are going to make an effort to come after me whatever. I mean, if I weren’t doing the job, it would definitely affect me less, “Fauci added. “That is not a factor that I take into account while making my decision about my career.”
Fauci singlehandedly started the “trust the science” movement which advocated for people who don’t have degrees in the sciences or medical field to be silent regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. Which is ironic because science is all about questioning!
