Trump Fumbles After Being Asked ‘Where Is Dr. Fauci’ During Press Briefing: Watch
It has been reported that there is growing tension between Donald Trump and his medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci. So when the doctor failed to attend Monday’s briefing on the coronavirus, many were left speculating: “where is Dr. Anthony Fauci?”
One reporter tried to ask the question and Trump brushed it off.
Someone tries asking the president where Fauci is. “One second,” he says, then goes to a different reporter.

But later on, another reporter pressed Trump to answer the question and to also answer if Fauci would agree with him on reopening the economy.
“He doesn’t not disagree with me,” was Trump’s answer.
