Fauci reveals why he ‘never really considered resigning’ under Trump

Infection disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci attained widespread prominence for his role as a COVID-19 adviser under President Donald Trump.

Although he frequently faced criticism from the former president and various Trump supporters, he recently revealed that he never seriously considered resigning from his position. He did, however, acknowledge that stepping down would have been “gratifying for a moment.”

“I would always tell the truth”

Fauci has taken on an even broader health advisory role under President Joe Biden and has occasionally spoken about his time in the Trump administration despite previously claiming that such talk would be “not productive.”

His most recent remarks came during an appearance on MSNBC.

Host Joy Reid asked her guest if he ever considered resigning from the Trump White House, prompting him to explain why he did not.

“You know, Joy, I never really considered resigning because I felt, if I did, I would really leave a vacuum of somebody who — as you know, I would always tell the truth,” Fauci said. “I would always be talking about what is based on data.”

He went on to claim that he “was afraid” that stepping down, even if it “would be gratifying for a moment,” would deprive him of his “perch” on the COVID-19 task force.

“Somewhat of a liberating feeling”

“So, the answer to your question is, I never seriously considered walking out of that at all,” Fauci reiterated.

Nevertheless, comments made during the previous administration and in the weeks since Biden took office have revealed that Fauci and Trump were never quite on the same page.

Recently, Fauci asserted that, under Trump, “you didn’t feel that you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be any repercussions about it,” noting that his perception has changed dramatically as part of the Biden administration.

“The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence, what the science is, and know that’s it, let the science speak — it is somewhat of a liberating feeling,” he said.

Of course, another reason Fauci might not have wanted to lose his “perch” lies in recent reports that show he was the highest-paid federal employee in the entire country as of 2019, which was the last year of data available.

    1. I agree. I don’t believe him so I don’t listen to him with all his glorious predictions. There is too much uncertainty about the vaccine at this point and time so I’m going to take a wait and see attitude. I want to know about the side affects of the vaccine. The virus last only a few weeks, side affects could last a life time. The true number of COVID deaths (those who have no underlying conditions) is less than 1% of the US population. Fauci and the leftist news media are always reporting high infections, high deaths…etc. etc..

    1. Agree. His perspective was soo limited that he never saw the big picture that the “cure” was worse than the disease. The effects on people were not part of his consideration.

  2. He was as no good as Biden. He is one of Gates big pals. Trump would have been better off without that guy. Our country would possibly escaped a lockdown. Lies and more lies about the virus. Good riddance to Fauci. Please leave now.

  3. Fact: Fauci did lie to the American people, early on. No mask necessary, then later admit he lied to preserve supply for first responders.
    In a court of law, if you lie once, nothing else you say can be considered a lie.
    Further, he’s wasted no time bashing Trump, despite being the top doc in all this. He & Birx stood on the podium with Trump, so if Trump was being deceitful, they certainly endorsed it.
    Personally, I’d have some respect for both of them, had they resigned & then gone on all the fake media outlets to proclaim Orange man lies. At least Fauci & Birx could have their integrity. But clearly that $417,000 salary was what his integrity was sold for.
    Trump should’ve never trusted the snake oil salesman.

  4. What a POS! He is a hack! A fake a phoney! I think he should resign right now and apologies to the country! FI!

  5. Fauci, Obama, and Gates went to Wahun China a few years ago, WHY.? They gave that Lab. millions of taxpayers dollars and Biden I hear is doing it again, WHY. ?? Do they want to make another covid ..??

  6. Was it the media that made him feel like he couldn’t ask questions of Trump? Clearly it was not Trump who told him not to speak because we all know that is not how he does business. He gathers experts from different areas and th hey discuss and come to conclusions. so this statement doesn’t fly.

  7. Fauci and Biden are a match made in Heaven but Biden is in no condition to evaluate his expertise. Obama is calling the shots and sells the same kind of snake oil. Birds of a feather don’t always flock together.Fauci already has greener pastures in China.

  8. Fauci didn’t resign because he was the problem in the first place. He funneled millions of taxpayer money to China to invent a DNA biological warfare virus that can be used against an army and the population the army protects. Fauci being at the top and the supposed expert was where President Trump had to go to as the expert in charge of viruses but it was a well kept secret Fauci was the maker of the virus. He is responsible for killing a half million of his own people and I call that treason. These democrats are so deep in our govt in positions where they can stop their opposition from exposing the democrats, our govt can no longer operate as our govt. Fauci is a murderer and traitor and should be in jail as one. Why is our govt under Fauci developing weapons using our enemies. It wasn’t until I saw pictures on the internet of Fauci laughing and drinking with the Clintons and Obamas and the statement Fauci was a democrat who donated thousands to the democrat party, that I knew Trump was in trouble.

  9. I think that Fauci and Obama should be treated as terrorist for their part that they played in this Supposedly, Covid Pandemic. If the grants were signed off by them two, then we need a legitimate thorough investigation done by our military. That way they can be tried in a military court.

  10. I have never trusted Fauci! He can go were the sun don’t shine He has never treated one patient in his entire life. Went straight to working for the government. Allowed this virus to go to China and they worked on it more knowing it was deadly. Gates and him are in bed together and they will probably create more until they get their World Reset.

    1. You need to stop scaring people and calling this a deadly virus. With a 99.8% chance that you will survive it, why do you call it deadly. Just doesn’t make any sense to me.

      1. It is all about control of people’s lives. In my opinion, the global elites like Bill Gates, George Soros, Pelosi, Fauci, Obama and others want to control everyone. Why? Will that make you a better person? NO… Will that make you GOD is people’s eyes? HECK NO…. Then what will that make you? A MARXISTS.

  11. There’s been a lot of mistakes made within our government in the last few decades. I think it time for the law abiding American citizens to start giving their opinions on what things should be voted on or changed before any final decisions by our employed government workers and voted in leaders. Also I think it time someone should think of a way to be able to vote our President and any one else running for office without any Cheating or fraud of any kind of corruption involved. If we can send a man to the moon , WHY CAN”T we fix this problem and stop throwing it under the rug every four years.

  12. He was a liar, and a glory hound, he was just a whore to the highest bidder, working for bozo bonehead biden just proves what a egg sucking dog and piece of scum he really is

  13. ADD FAUCI TO THE VAST POOL OF “DEM DECEITFULS”.

    HE FLATTERS AND FOOLS HIMSELF THINKING HE’S NOT REPLACEABLE.

    PLEASE, TONY, DO US ALL A FAVOR AND RESIGN; “LEAVE A VOID”….AND SEE HOW FAST AND COMPETENTLY YOU’RE REPLACED.

  14. Who was it that said he is the most knowledgeable expert. I feel like he blows his own horn. I have read from many doctors that this pandemic is fake, the science does not back it up, but are censored on mainstream media. If Fouci’s lips are moving, he is lying.
