Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said Monday ahead of the election that he wants to hire Dr. Anthony Fauci and fire President Donald Trump instead.
The comment came after reports that Trump had said he wanted to fire Fauci after the election.
“Last night, Trump said he was going to fire Dr. Fauci,” Biden said during a drive-in rally in Ohio. “Isn’t that wonderful? I’ve got a better idea: elect me, and I’m going to hire Dr. Fauci, and we’re going to fire Donald Trump.”
Fauci has said that further lockdowns might be necessary this fall and winter if coronavirus cases continue to increase.
