Former President Donald Trump was right about so many things. Now he’s being vindicated when it comes to the pandemic and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role in setting public policy.
Emails from the beginning of the pandemic revealed how Fauci promised Chinese officials they would “get through this together,” the Washington Examiner reported. The exchange was included in 866 pages of emails released this week.
Fauci, COVID-19 guru and head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made this promise when corresponding with George Gao, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This was at the height of the coronavirus hysteria when former President Donald Trump was rightly blaming China for the virus that was known to have originated in Wuhan.
“Let’s work together to get the virus out of the earth,” Goa said. He was reaching out after a science magazine attributed a quote to the official saying it was a “big mistake” not to recommend mask-wearing, and he worried him that Fauci would be upset.
“I saw the Science interview, how could I say such a word ‘big mistake’ about others? That was the journalist’s wording. Hope you understand,” he wrote to Fauci.
“I understand completely,” Fauci replied. “No problem. We will get through this together.” Goa would again check in with Fauci in April about being “attacked by some people.” Fauci replied that he was fine “despite some crazy people in this world,” likely referring to Trump.
This email was one out of the thousands he received from that time, the Washington Post reported. Many heavy hitters corresponded with him during that time, including Bill and Melinda Gates and the filmmakers producing a documentary about him.
Additional facts are coming to light about Fauci and his handling of the pandemic, particularly in relation to China. While he was virtually a canonized saint as far as the leftist media was concerned, many worried that he was a partisan hack who was working against Trump in the interests of China the whole time.
