Asked on ABC’s “Good Morning America” about Trump retweeting a post claiming Fauci has “misled the American public on many issues,” Fauci responded: “’I have not been misleading the American public under any circumstances.”
Trump has also called Fauci “a little bit of an alarmist,” but both men have said their relationship remains “very good.”
“I don’t tweet. I don’t even read them, so I don’t really want to go there,” Fauci said Tuesday. “I just will continue to do my job no matter what comes out, because I think it’s very important.”
“I’m just going to certainly continue doing my job. We’re in the middle of a crisis with regard to an epidemic, a pandemic, this is what I do, this is what I’ve been trained for my entire professional life, and I’ll continue to do it,” he added.
