Trump Says 'Not Much' He Would Change In Hypothetical COVID Do-Over

President Trump blasts Fauci as a 'disaster' during campaign call

US President Donald Trump called coronavirus expert Dr Anthony Fauci a "disaster" and sought to reassure campaign workers he still has a path to victory on Election Day despite slipping opinion poll numbers.

This is not the first time Trump has made apparent his distaste for Fauci, the leading infectious disease expert on the White House coronavirus task force, and the doctor's handling of the pandemic. "But Fauci's a disaster".

"I was anxious that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people, and nearly nobody wearing a mask", Fauci said in an interview to CBS, published on Monday.

Fauci, in an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" which aired on Sunday, said he was not surprised that Trump contracted the virus after he held large events with few face coverings. People are saying whatever.

During Monday's call, the President also claimed the people are exhausted of the pandemic, adding "just leave us alone", The Hill news website reported. But he's a nice guy.

On the third day of a western campaign swing, Trump was facing intense pressure to turn around his campaign, hoping for the type of last-minute surge that gave him a come-from-behind victory four years ago.

Border to remain in place until at least Nov. 21
Hard-hit airlines and the battered tourism sector are nonetheless pressuring Justin Trudeau's government to loosen restrictions. The edge being the border between the United States and Canada , which is closed while coronavirus cases continue to climb.

Relating to his supposed feud with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Trump stated the 2 "get alongside superb".

Fauci has been the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. Trump has suggested the worst has passed.

Fauci has openly complained about being included, out of context, in a Trump campaign advertisement. With almost two weeks to go until Election Day, Democrat Joe Biden holds a lead in national opinion polls and in many battleground states where the election is likely to be decided.

While Fauci continues to push for caution, and now encourages mask-wearing and social distancing, the president has expressed his frustration with the guidelines by the US Centres for Disease Control (CDC), even after his own Covid-19 hospitalisation.

"When I saw that on TV, I said, 'Oh my goodness.

I speak for the interpretation of the data, and the subsequent evolution of that data into the best policy advice that I can give the president of the United States".
