Dr. Anthony Fauci just issued a stunning reversal. President Donald Trump is completely shocked — even he didn’t expect Fauci to come forward with this announcement about the COVID-19 virus.
“Certainly it’s not going to be a pandemic for a lot longer, because I believe the vaccines are going to turn that around,” said Fauci. This is an about-face from previous statements he has made about the longevity of the pandemic.
Not long ago, he said that the United States wouldn’t be back to normal until 2022. The announcement that Pfizer had developed a vaccine that is reportedly 90% effective must have changed his prognosis, however.
Now, he thinks the pandemic could be under control “easily by the end of 2021.” Here’s the problem: As our nation’s “top” infectious disease expert, he had to have known that Pfizer was close to a breakthrough.
This is why his doom and gloom hasn’t been helpful at all — and it has also made President Donald Trump look like he hasn’t done anything to help, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
It is because of Operation Warp Speed (pioneered by the president) that Pfizer was able to take advantage of the streamlined regulatory climate to develop a vaccine faster. Far too often, Fauci just seems to be playing politics.
