Trump rebukes Fauci's concern over reopening schools

Trump rebukes Fauci's concern over reopening schools”

'I totally disagree with him on schools, the president said of Anthony Fauci's words of caution at a Senate hearing earlier in the week.

Some schools including both of California's public university systems have said they will not fully reopen in the fall.

So far, Trump has stuck with Fauci, but the doctor is increasingly in the background as the president pushes his reopening message. But I think you should absolutely open the schools.

On Wednesday, President Trump said he was surprised by Dr. Fauci's stance on reopening schools.

"We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there's not going to be a surge, and that we can safely open the economy".

The president's latest comments come amid reports of some young children being severely affected by an inflammatory syndrome that could be linked to the virus.

Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also noted that the premature lifting of lockdown may lead to another deadly outbreak of coronavirus in the United States, which has already claimed over 82,000 lives so far.

The director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases emphasised the importance of not being "cavalier in thinking that children are completely immune to the deleterious effects" of the disease.

"My concern, that if some areas, city, states or what have you jump over those various checkpoints and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively and efficiently, my concern is that we will start to see little spikes that might turn into outbreaks", he said.

In his sit-down with Bartiromo, which was taped Wednesday, Trump took a more diplomatic approach to addressing the conflicting opinions, at least based on an excerpt released in advance.

Fauci's comments have made him a target among some Trump allies. "But as I mentioned in my opening remarks, even at the top speed we're going, we don't see a vaccine playing in the ability of individuals to get back to school this term", Fauci remarked. He reiterated that position Tuesday in testimony before a Senate committee. At one point in early April, Trump appeared to be so fed up with reporters asking for Fauci's opinion on the untested treatment that he blocked him from answering a question during a news briefing. Since he had contact with among those people, Vice President Mike Pence has actually been keeping his range from Trump, talking by phone rather of personally.

Still, Fauci has continued speaking out, prompting Sen.

States across the USA are beginning to ease lockdown restrictions following the publication of federal guidelines last month.

"No, there is certainly not a confrontational relationship between me and the president", Fauci said.
