The chief US infectious disease specialist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, did not consent to the use of his words in the campaign ads for President Donald Trump. About this he stated CNN.
October 10 Trump campaign headquarters after recovering from COVID-19 and discharging from hospital released a video about the personal experience of the head of state in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic.
A voiceover in the ad says, “President Trump is recovering from the coronavirus, and so is America. Together, we have met this challenge, protecting our seniors by providing essential medicines in record time and without sparing money. ” After that, a fragment of an interview with Fauci appears in the video, where the doctor says: “I can’t imagine anyone could do more.” Thus, it seems that the country’s chief infectious disease specialist approves of Trump’s actions in the fight against the disease.
“For almost 50 years of public service, I have never publicly endorsed a single political candidate. Used without my permission, words in a GOP ad campaign were taken out of context for a statement I made a few months ago about federal efforts to combat the pandemic, ”Fauci said.
