During an interview with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Dr. Anthony Fauci again warned states about ‘skipping steps’ and reopening too soon as the Covid-19 coronavirus surges in many US states.
Meanwhile, after going more than a month without speaking, President Donald Trump conversed by phone with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top health expert who spent the preceding three days coming under withering attack by Trump’s top aides.
The conversation went well, people familiar with it said, and Trump later said he and Fauci were on the same team.
Yet the phone call — which broke a silent streak dating to early June — did not appear to presage a turning point in Trump’s response to coronavirus.
Instead, months into a raging pandemic whose US death toll is nearing 140,000, the news that Trump is finally speaking with the nation’s top infectious disease expert only underscored what has been an incoherent approach to a national crisis which has placed the President in dire political straits.
