The Trump administration has been trying to smear Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, for getting some things wrong in the early days of the COVID-19 virus, even though Fauci could only go on the available information at the time.
In response, CNN put together video clips of President Donald Trump making absurdly false statements about the coronavirus despite the overwhelming medical evidence that showed just the opposite:
By April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.
The coronavirus, which is, you know, very well under control in our country, we have very few people with it.
We’re going down, not up. We’re going very substantially down, not up. And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15, within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.
