Trump just broke his silence and asked one question Dr. Fauci fears above all
Since leaving the White House following the contested 2020 election, Donald Trump has been quiet.
With him being banned from every major social media platform, he seldom puts out statements.
But Trump just broke his silence and asked one question Dr. Fauci fears above all.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is in big trouble following the release of thousands of his emails over the past year.
They catch him in lies, expose his inconsistencies, and show his cozy ties to Chinese Communist Party officials.
There have been calls for his firing, and even prosecution, following the bombshell information.
And of course, with this being such a big scandal, Donald Trump chimed in with a rare statement where he eviscerated Fauci.
Trump began his statement by saying, “After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do.”
He cites the misdirections from Fauci, which he ignored, including “clos[ing] our Borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed,” along with “closing our borders to Europe, specifically to certain heavily infected countries.”
In Trump-like fashion, he even humiliates Fauci by pointing out that he “was later given credit, even by ‘Tony,’ for saving hundreds of thousands of lives.”
Trump also attacked Fauci over his inconsistencies on masks, stating: “Dr. Fauci was totally against masks when even I thought they would at least be helpful. He then changed his mind completely and became a radical masker!”
After getting all of that out of the way, Trump hit Fauci the question he fears above all:
“There are a lot of questions that must be answered by Dr. Fauci. The funding of Wuhan by the U.S. was foolishly started by the Obama Administration in 2014 but ended under the Trump Administration. When I heard about it, I said ‘no way.’ What did Dr. Fauci know about ‘gain of function’ research, and when did he know it?”

While testifying before a U.S. Senate committee, Dr. Fauci outright denied U.S. funding of the Wuhan lab many believe caused the outbreak of coronavirus.
Later he admitted the Wuhan lab was funded through a grant that was funneled through an American company, but contended that there was no dangerous gain of function research occurring.
But now there is solid evidence he was lying about that too.
If he did lie, he committed perjury, considering he was under oath during his senate testimony.
