Trump disagrees with Fauci on US testing capacity

Trump disagrees with Fauci on US testing capacity 1

 

President Donald Trump said he disagrees with Dr. Anthony Fauci after the nation's top infectious disease expert said the US needs to "significantly ramp up" testing.
"We absolutely need to significantly ramp up, not only the number of tests but the capacity to actually perform them," Fauci said during a Time 100 Talks interview.
That way, he continued, "you don't have a situation where you have a test, but it can't be done because there's not a swab, or not an extraction media or not the right vial — all of those things got to be in place."
"I am not overly confident right now at all, that we have what it takes to do that," Fauci added.
During Thursday's coronavirus task force news briefing — which Fauci was not at — Trump addressed Fauci's remarks and said he thinks the country is doing "a great job."
"I don't agree with him on that, no, I think we're doing a great job on testing," Trump said.

    Why do we have a president that can’t listen to the people around him. We should’ve never elected this fool. Bad leadership equals bad results

  2. Trump..”I’m not a doctor, but I know more than the doctors and scientists”

    It is refreshing to hear Dr. Fauci instead of The President who’s lying all the time!

  5. HE IS BY FAR THE DUMBEST PRES EVER

    • Al Almonte 👈Lmao I don’t have a racist soul Al. You really don’t even have a clue. You just toss the racist card out there because you have nothing else to toss. You’re pathetic

    • Jorgen dahl 👈 No wonder they call you snowflakes.

    • @Andy Taylor nah. biden would be a billion times better than trump. anyone would.

    • @vman armand Wow that really show how much TDS you have if your hate for one person outways your objectivity and intellectual capacity to understand that one hated person against the person that is unfit to hold office of that magnitude and you want that person to be there you really need to get some help

    Which is why Fauci wasn’t at the briefing, they also disagree on the hydroxy drug trump was plugging which turned out to be a dud, Fauci was sceptical and wanted more evidence first.

    • @RFI-Crypto Lab Biden is not President and the President is demonstrating enough stupidity to cover the nation.

      No we need to hear trump dumb a$$ so that people will go out and VOTE him OUT

  8. Hey Democrats _ how about starting a movement for Falci to be Head of CDC? Lets have some protests that he is the only one to get us through this! Lets use our voice!

  9. How do we protect our scientist, and doctors, from Trump? It’s time we do something and soon.

    • @Melissa H You say that as though his cabinet and the GOP led Senate will choose Country over dictator? Clearly they have made their choice. And lucky America has one other choice. BIDEN. Wtf? We are sooooo screwed.

      They don’t know that they are in danger. Just like we didn’t know about this plague for the past 2 years. They didnt say a word. Now that we know we’re gonna die, they tell us exactly how to die too- peacefully at home.

    • This a scary time. I ask myself that same question.

    So, the ignorant fool disagrees with the proven expert?! Why is this POTUS still in office?!

  12. How did we get here almost at the end of April when we started hearing about this virus in January?

    January:
    “The risk to the American people is very low because of what we have done”
    “We have it under control, stay calm”

    February:
    “15 infected, and within a couple of days, it’ll be close to zero”
    “It’ll go away in April with the heat”
    “It’ll disappear like a miracle”

    March:
    “Anyone who wants a test can get a test”
    “Only 22 deaths so far, no shutdown”
    “I don’t take any responsibility at all”
    “We have a problem nobody thought about a month ago”

    April:
    “There will be a lot of death”
    “If less than 100,000 Americans die, we have done our job”

    • It sounds so stupid, you’d think it was all fake, yet every quote is here on youtube in all it’s glory.

    • Because republicans.

    • @Noreb because *Freedom* derp derp

      This is almost funny, but this is the reality for the US today. Looking in as a foreigner, it is rather frightening to know that such a man could have been elected to set a precedent for his countrymen, as their most qualified leader. Where did it all go so horribly wrong for the United States?

    • @Bjarki Freyr Bjarnason pure and simple , racist voters

    Can’t believe this is still debatable! The thug, a failed businessman, a failed apprenticeship of being a pseudo prez.. has the nerve to dispute the proven educated medical expert? The psychopath has no education that he can prove except that he ranked possibly 57th in his class at university. Because 56 were named on the honours dean’s list. For all we know he could have been 150th!!👀

      It’s not debatable, the Trump supporters are lying like hell now.

    • @Nathaniel Republican I think you are slightly misinformed. Clinton won the election by over 3,000,000 votes. But trump won the presidency only because of the anachronistic U.S. Electoral college system, a system that should have logically been abandoned over 100 years ago. You cannot deny these facts or this truth. By the way, I have read that trump is a confirmed atheist, but only pretended to be religious for business advantages.

    • @Nathaniel Republican If Trump was chosen by God, it would be to punish human kind for it’s stupidity, the stupidity you are representing.

    Trump: “we have more swabs that we don’t know what to do with them, but maybe I will sell them to Ukraine or Russia, for an investigation on them Bidens”

    • Isn’t it sad that I have to question if he actually said that? No, seriously, I’m genuinely asking if he said that. Nothing seems farfetched when it comes on to this president.

  17. “I cannot tell a lie” – Dr Fauci
    “I cannot tell the truth” – tRump
    “I cannot tell the difference” – tRump enablers

    Yeah…he seems to disagree with anyone that actually tells the truth

  19. Anyone listening to a guy who qualifies himself as knowledgeable in medicine because his uncle was a doctor can’t be saved at this point

    • Pouty Gorilla | April 23, 2020 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      Trump’s uncle was not a medical doctor. He was an engineer.

    • @Pouty Gorilla what’s the difference?

    • Pouty Gorilla well Trump used him for his own credibility to be very well informed about medical science. I’m glad u told me that though cuz I looked him up and he did some pretty good things in medical science. Seems the line of geniuses in that family died out

  20. “I don’t agree with reality” -Trump
