Donald Trump is growing increasingly frustrated with Dr. Anthony Fauci, his top medical adviser, who advised him to bring the economy to a halt in order to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
According to Vanity Fair, former West Wing officials have said that Trump is furious with Dr. Fauci for making him shut down the economy.
“Trump is furious,” a former West Wing official told Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman. “He’s been calling business leaders asking if he should just reopen the economy.”
“Sources say that Trump is leaning toward telling at least some Americans to return to work after the 15-day social-distancing period ends on March 31,” Sherman reports. “This puts Trump on a potential collision course with Fauci that many fear will end with Fauci being fired or quitting. ‘Fauci is the best medical expert we have. We can’t lose him,’ a former White House official said. Signs of tension between Trump and Fauci have been emerging.”
