GOP Gov Won’t Enact Stay-At-Home Order Because She Doesn’t Trust Fauci: ‘He Doesn’t Have All The Information’
While the majority of the country has already set a stay-at-home order to stop the spreading of the coronavirus, a few states have yet to implicate the order.
According to the Associated Press’ Ryan Foley, Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) is refusing to enact the order because she feels Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert on President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force, shouldn’t be trusted.
Reynolds complained on Friday that the whole issue has become “divisive” — and lashed out at Dr. Fauci for saying that all states need such an order.
“I would say that maybe he doesn’t have all the information,” said Reynolds, according to Foley.
Iowa governor Kim Reynolds says her refusal to issue a shelter-in-place order has become a "divisive issue"; chastises Dr. Fauci for saying all states should implement one: "I would say that maybe he doesn’t have all the information"
