Amid the 3,200 newly revealed Anthony Fauci emails, former President Donald Trump said our country is fortunate he didn’t follow Fauci’s advice.
“After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do,” he wrote in a statement on Thursday.
Trump cited examples of what he did to help the country at the time, including, “for instance, I closed our borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed. The Democrats and the Fake New Media even called me a ‘xenophobe.’ In the end, we saw this was a life-saving decision, and likewise with closing our border to Europe, specifically to certain heavily infected countries.”
The former President called for a larger investigation into Fauci and said there are “still a lot of questions that must be answered.”
Trump Blames Obama for Lab Funding
“The Funding of Wuhan by the U.S. was foolishly started by the Obama Administration in 2014 but ended under the Trump Administration. When I heard about it I said, ‘no way.’ What did Dr. Fauci know about ‘gain of function’ research and when did he know it?”
Though there may have been a suspension of such research, it was confirmed Thursday that the U.S. taxpayer funded $600,000 worth of research into bat coronaviruses. In addition, a new report claims that state department staffers were opposed to the Trump administration’s inquiry into the origin of the coronavirus for fear it would expose the funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
