  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Donald Trump calls Dr Fauci a ‘disaster’ on day of repeated attacks on his senior Covid-19 adviser” – below is their description.

    Donald Trump has launched a remarkable series of attacks on his top infectious diseases expert Dr Anthony Fauci, calling him a “disaster”, criticising his TV appearances and even mocking his recent poor opening pitch for Washington DC’s baseball team.  The US president’s repeated swipes at the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases escalated a clash that has been simmering for months but also dominated coverage with just two weeks left to the election. “Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we’d have 500,000 deaths,” Mr Trump said in a morning call with his campaign that reporters were allowed to listen in on. He continued to voice similar criticism throughout the day while he was campaigning in Arizona.  Mr Trump appeared to have been triggered by a high-profile interview Dr Fauci gave on Sunday where he said he was not surprised the US president caught Covid-19 given the “super-spreader” event he held at the White House to reveal his Supreme Court nominee.  During the interview on NBC’s Meet the Press Mr Fauci also said that the president appeared to believe that wearing a face mask was a sign of “weakness” and disagreed with that point of view.  Read more on this: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/10/19/donald-trump-calls-dr-anthony-fauci-disaster-day-repeated-attacks/ Subscribe to The Telegraph on YouTube ► https://bit.ly/3idrdLH
