Mike Pence just made one big announcement about Dr. Fauci’s future
America is moving in to the next phase of the coronavirus outbreak.
That is leading the administration to re-evaluate the experts offering advice.
And Mike Pence just made one big announcement about Dr. Fauci’s future.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the most controversial members of the White House coronavirus task force.
In this role, Dr. Fauci has been one of the leading advocates for the economically disastrous shutdowns to try and stop the slow of the spread of the virus.
But as 42 states moves to reopen their economies in some form or fashion, the administration is winding down the task force and moving to rescue the American economy.
And that means Dr. Fauci’s time in the spotlight is also winding down.
Vice President Mike Pence announced this decision to reporters at his office in the West Wing.
“I think we’re having conversations about that, and about what the proper time is for the task force to complete its work,” Pence told the press. “And for the ongoing efforts to take place on an agency by agency level.”
Pence said the decision to wind down the task force by Memorial Day was because of the successful work the group put in guiding America to a point where it could begin to reopen its economy.
“It really is all a reflection of the tremendous progress that we’ve made as a country,” Pence added.
The Vice President did say that Dr. Deborah Birx would continue to advise the President and work out of the White House.
“We’re going to keep Dr. Deb Birx around every bit as long as we need to,” Pence said.
Dr. Birx told the press that it was her job to monitor the outbreak and continue to provide the best medical expertise to the President based on the data at hand.
“We’ll still keep a close eye on the data,” Birx said. “Because we have very good data now, it took us a while to build that capacity and we’ll make sure that we’re watching that at a federal level.”
