Trump Campaign Won’t Take Down Ad Using Fauci

Fox News reports:

The Trump campaign fired back at Fauci’s comments that his words were “taken out of context” – saying that the infectious disease expert had praised the Trump administration’s work in combating the pandemic and that his comments are “accurate.”

“These are Dr. Fauci’s own words,” Tim Murtaugh [photo], a spokesman for the Trump campaign, said in a statement to Fox News. “The video is from a nationally broadcast television interview in which Dr. Fauci was praising the work of the Trump Administration.”

Murtaugh added: “The words spoken are accurate, and directly from Dr. Fauci’s mouth. As Dr. Fauci recently testified in the Senate, President Trump took the virus seriously from the beginning, acted quickly, and saved lives.”
