On January 29, 2020, the U.S. Department of State White House Coronavirus Task Force was created. Over the past two months, its members have been present in the living rooms of millions of Americans on a daily basis, giving briefings on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Federal government’s response to it.
One of its most visible, and well liked, members is Doctor Anthony Fauci, who has been the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984.
Recently, there has been some very public tension between Dr. Fauci and President Trump. Hours after Dr. Fauci appeared on CNN on April 12th and stated that more could have been done by the Administration to prevent the spread of COVID-19, President Trump, in one of his ubiquitous tweets, retweeted a user who said it was “Time to #Fire Fauci.”
