(PatriotHeadline.Com)- While Democrats continue to think up new ways to attack President Donald Trump, or to claim he hasn’t done enough to tackle the Chinese coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci is setting the record straight. The head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and one of the most high-profile members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, told the media that President Trump hit the “accelerator in every aspect” when it came to minimizing the damage caused by the virus.
Dr. Fauci was testifying before the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, taking questions about how the federal government has handled the outbreak. Republican Senator for North Carolina, Richard Burr, asked Fauci whether anybody in the administration asked him to “take the foot off the gas” in trying to find a cure or other kind of counter measure.
“No, Senator, not at all,” Fauci responded. “As a matter of fact, we at NIH, as you know, have right from the very beginning put our foot right on that accelerator in every aspect, including the development of vaccines.”

He also explained how he and his colleagues in the Trump administration started the preparations right at the beginning of the year – a statement that stands in direct opposition to the claims made by high-profile Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“And as I described in my opening statement, we actually started that in January, literally days after the virus was known and its sequence was published,” Fauci went on to explain. “So no, I have never been told by anyone to hold back on the development of any countermeasure or any basic research project that we’ve been involved in.”
Fauci is unafraid to tell the truth even if it means going against what President Trump might have said. That’s what make his comments so important. They prove that the Democrats, when they say President Trump is not handling this outbreak properly, are either lying or don’t grasp the situation very well.
