Can President Trump fire this man already?
Recently on MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that President Trump failed with Operation Warp Speed because the U.S. fell short of meeting their goal of administering 20 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in December because President Trump left states ‘on their own.’
According to Breitbart, Andrea Mitchell asked, “So now we have two highly effective vaccines. Administering them has been anything but at warp speed. What we’re seeing is, you know, the fact that only something like 2.8 million people have actually gotten their vaccines, 14 million doses have been distributed, though. That’s really a big drop-off. President Trump is blaming the states. Do you agree with that?”
Fauci responded, “We were hoping that as we ended December 31, we will have had 20 million doses in the arms of individuals. and obviously, from the numbers that you showed, Andrea, that’s not the case.”
He then said, “We really need to rethink or think more intensively about how we’re going to reach out and help the states, help the states, and help the local authorities get this job done. ”
Adding, “There has to be a strong relationship between the national approach and the local approach. You know, the national, first of all, centrally, you can’t do it all alone. You have to have very active participation of the states and local authorities and local public health people to get this done. You have absolutely need that. But it’s obvious, when you leave them on their own, without giving them direction, without giving them the kind of resources that they need, that they can’t do it and this is proof positive. So hopefully, as we get into the beginning of the year, we’ll see a change in that and we’ll be able to get them the resources to do what they need to do. ”
