Peter Navarro writes for USA Today:
Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.
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.
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.
The insanity of this piece aside, theres no better proof of the incompetence & dishonesty of Navarro than his new op-ed in USA Today. He makes sweeping statements with links to prove his point – and HIS links *disprove* what is saying. Yes, he’s lying../1https://t.co/mzQaYAj2UR

Let’s call this out: This is an outright and full blown Antiscience disinformation campaign coming out of the White House. I’ve got the bow tie on and I’m ready for battle…. https://t.co/rjt6uC0Y4y

Dear @realDonaldTrump: You should either fire Peter Navarro, or you should fire Dr. Fauci. But you can’t keep confusing the American people with your officials making contradictory statements about covid. It’s a ridiculous way to govern. Get your act together. Lives are at stake. https://t.co/Pg2qgmic5i

Dr. Fauci responds to White House smears: “For the most part you can trust medical authorities. I believe I’m one of them so I believe you can trust me. But I would stick with respected medical authorities who have a track record of telling the truth.” https://t.co/DXSWYIef3r pic.twitter.com/3EVBBMyRig
