The feud between Dr. Anthony Fauci and former President Trump continues. The two have notoriously clashed on their response to the Coronavirus pandemic and now Fauci is taking credit for the vaccines developed under the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed. During an interview with CNN, the disease expert conveniently left Trump’s name out when discussing the vaccines.
The Daily Wire reports:
“When I saw what happened in New York City, almost overrunning of our health care systems, and that’s when it became very clear that the decision we made on January 10 to go all-out and develop a vaccine, may have been the best decision that I’ve ever made with regard to intervention as the director of the institute,” he said in “COVID WAR: The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out.”
The Moderna vaccine, the one Fauci himself took, was developed in conjunction with Operation Warp Speed, a public-private partnership that joined the federal government and pharmaceutical companies to create four vaccines in record time.
But the CNN program also failed to credit Trump and Operation Warp Speed. CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta overlooked the Trump initiative and credited Fauci instead.
“The life-saving and record-breaking vaccines that Dr. Fauci oversaw were a giant success for ‘The Doctors’ and for science and for the world,” Gupta said in a voiceover for the special.
Trump has repeatedly taken credit for the development of the vaccines in conjecture with Operation Warp Speed. The vaccines were ready ahead of schedule now with millions of Americans having already been inoculated.
