Dr. Fauci just came forward and crushed the left's narrative on Trump's apparently dangerous Easter "deadline."
Trump had recently said that he would like to have the country reopened by Easter.
“I’d love to have it open by Easter,” Trump said during a virtual town hall event on Tuesday. “I would love to have that. It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I’ll make it an important day for this too.”
Later that day Trump told America, “I said earlier today that I hope we can do this by Easter. I think that would be a great thing for our country, and we’re all working very hard to make that a reality.”
Immediately after, the leftist media came out like clockwork and tried to slam the president for being "irresponsible."
The New York Times ran a hit piece claiming, “Public health officials were horrified by Mr. Trump’s statement, which threatened to send many Americans back into the public square just as the peak of the virus was expected." Far-left late night television host Jimmy Kimmel claimed Trump defied the so-called experts and said, "we’re all gonna die so the president can eat Peeps."
If the Democrats would have actually listened to what Trump said, they would know that he did not say he was going to just reopen the country on a whim after putting so much effort into locking things down.
He rather expressed a desire for a hopeful end date. His comment was an aspiration, not a declaration of what he's going to do. Thankfully Dr. Fauci understood this, and he made all Trump's critics in the media claiming otherwise look foolish.
During an interview with Laura Ingraham Fauci said, “We talk to him about that, we say we need to be flexible, he realizes that, and he accepts that. He doesn’t want to give up his aspirational goal, but he’s flexible enough to say, ‘OK, let’s look at it on a day-by-day basis.'”
Fauci went on to say, “Even though it looks like he’s made this absolute decision on something, he does have an open mind about it.
These two statements directly contradict the media's claims, and they also perfectly reveal what kind of leader we have in President Trump.
Trump is painted by the media as somebody who doesn't care about any opinion but his own, that he will just bulldoze his way through every situation. Yet here we have Fauci praising Trump for being willing to change his mind as the situation changes.
Like all true leaders, the president has done a great job guiding the country using his firm principles, while also adjusting to a constantly-changing situation.
