During a rally in Florida on Sunday night, President Trump hinted that should he win the presidential election next Tuesday, he would be willing to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the historic White House medical advisor.
According to Fox News, during the speech that President Trump gave in Opa-locka, Florida, he expressed his discomfort with the coverage that the hegemonic media was developing about the CCP Virus, given the increase in cases in some areas of the United States.
Upon hearing President Trump’s repudiation of the media, the crowd began chanting, “say goodbye to Fauci!”
The audience showed an understanding that Dr. Fauci and his collaborators powerfully nourish panic speech broadcast by the media.
Immediately afterward, President Trump responded to his supporters: “Don’t tell anybody but let me wait until a little bit after the election,” Trump told the crowd. “I appreciate the advice.”
The Hill posted a video on its Twitter account showing this moment, “President Trump hints he’ll fire Dr. Fauci following the election. Crowd at Trump rally chant, ‘Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci!’” reported The Hill.

Dr. Fauci, an infectious disease expert, has served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984. Since that time, he has worked as a medical advisor to the White House.
In early 2020, with the spread of the CCP virus, his advisory role became more political than medical, positioning himself as an “authoritative voice” for opponents of the government and hegemonic media to spread a discourse of fear and justify an endless quarantine.
Forbes magazine reported that President Trump signed an executive order on Oct. 21, creating a prototype federal employee called “Schedule F,” which turns the worker into an employee who can be quickly and easily fired by management.
According to the report, Dr. Fauci’s position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases could eventually be considered a Schedule F position.
Dr. Fauci has recently criticized President Trump for his handling of the CCP Virus and openly defended his Democratic opponent Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, advocates of the Trump administration such as White House spokesman Judd Deere said that President Trump puts “the American people first,” and that Fauci decided to “play politics” around the election rather than limit himself to his role as medical advisor.
“It’s unacceptable and breaking with all norms for Dr. Fauci, a senior member of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force and someone who has praised President Trump’s actions throughout this pandemic, to choose three days before an election to play politics,” Deere told the Washington Post.
“As a member of the Task Force, Dr. Fauci has a duty to express concerns or push for a change in strategy, but he’s not done that, instead choosing to criticize the President.”
