Trump mobilizing the military to distribute a coronavirus vaccine when available

Trump mobilizing the military to distribute a coronavirus vaccine when available”

During a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on Tuesday, Paul had hammered Fauci on how there will be "wrong prediction after wrong prediction after wrong prediction" from health experts on when it was appropriate to reopen the US amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which conservatives like Paul have been itching to do despite those experts' warnings.

"He wants to play all sides of the equation", Trump said of Fauci on Wednesday during a meeting with the governors of Colorado and North Dakota. I think they should. "I think that they have a basis of knowledge, but when you prognosticate about the future or when you advocate for things dramatic and drastic, like closing all the schools, you should look at all the information".

Mr Trump said in the interview: "We have to open our country".

Dr Fauci later clarified that he was not implying students should be barred from returning to class until a Covid-19 vaccine is developed.

"The major message that I wish to convey to the Senate HLP committee tomorrow is the danger of trying to open the country prematurely", Fauci wrote in an email to the Times.

But his comments were nonetheless seized on by conservative commentators, as well as the president.

"To me it's not an acceptable answer, especially when it comes to schools", Mr Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday, when asked about Dr Fauci's warnings to senators the day before about the risks of reopening the schools and economy too soon.

Mr Trump and Dr Fauci have publicly disagreed before, including on the effectiveness of certain drugs that have been tested to treat the virus.

But Mr Trump has also acknowledged that the blowback to removing the doctor would be fierce.

Fauci told The New York Times on Monday that he planned to publicly warn states that prematurely reopening their economies will cause "needless suffering and death".
