White House Responds to Speculation of Trump on the Verge of Firing Fauci

The White House is addressing speculation about Dr. Anthony Fauci following President Donald Trump’s retweet of a suggestion that he be fired.

Despite speculation of tension growing between Trump and the nation’s top infectious disease expert, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley released a statement blasting the media for presumptively taking the president’s words out of context.

According to Gidley, Trump “exposed media attempts to maliciously push a falsehood.”

“This media chatter is ridiculous,” Gidley’s statement read. “President Trump is not firing Dr. Fauci. The president’s tweet clearly exposed media attempts to maliciously push a falsehood about his China decision in an attempt to rewrite history.”

Gidley’s statement comes less than a day after Trump’s speculative tweet caught the attention of Twitter users.

On Sunday, the president retweeted former Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine’s post that included a hashtag that suggested Fauci be fired, as previously reported on IJR.

With the retweet, Trump commented, “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you [One America News Network]”

Almost immediately after posting the tweet, Twitter users began tweeting their reactions.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) also shared his opinion of the tweet and asked why should Fauci be fired. He also offered three reasons why Fauci shouldn’t be fired.

“[Fire Fauci?] For what? 3 things true 1. [Government of China] did & continues to mislead own people & world 2. Most nations & govts at various levels in U.S. including Fed Govt reacted slow because didn’t want to harm economy or be alarmists 3. Can’t change past but can avoid repeating it”

Since the coronavirus began spreading in the United States, Fauci has been the top infectious disease expert on the Coronavirus Task Force. He and Dr. Deborah Birx have worked to accumulate data and statistics for the model projections that have contributed vastly to Trump’s decisions and handling of the coronavirus.


  1. President Trump should not trust Fauci or Birx, They are in league with Bill (depopulate the world) Gates and George (the evil one) Soros. We are being played by the globalists. President Trump may be the best President of modern times, but he must be careful of who he trusts.

    1. James sounds like one of the most moronic idiots I have ever encountered.

  2. Fire him. He does not know what he is doing, plus he cannot be trusted.

    1. Oh yes, anyone that is even remotely contrary to donnie, must be stopped. Right?

  3. The ANTI-HUMANITY PSYCHOPATHIC MURDERER’S self serving, inadequate, and incompetent response to the Covid-19 pandemic is directly responsible for the deaths of nearly 23,000 Americans.
    Only heartless, mindless, soulless, sub-human barbarians with their heads permanently lodged in their rectums support him.

  4. The media is synonymous with hate of Trump. That’s what most of it exists for. Nothing but hate and lies. A national disgrace.

    1. BULLSHIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      THE ANTI-HUMANITY, PSYCHOPATHIC MURDERER and all of his heartless, mindless, soulless, sub-human, rephucklican apologists, enablers, and supporters are absolute insults to and betrayers of America .

  5. Who cares if the leftwing media lies, whats new. We cant stop them , can we?? The Coronavirus is the fault of CHINA, not Trumps speed of recognition or Fauci’s fault. China is the one we need to retaliate to, NOBODY ELSE. Dont be diverted with your political likes or dislikes. ITS CHINA”S FAULT and they should pay some kind of price, not World War 3,but something that effects their power or pocketbook. Focus people FOCUS!!!

    1. Is your mother aware that she gave birth to and raised an idiot ?

      1. Is yours? Did she raise you to hate someone who doesn’t know that you exist? What a waste of your life.

        1. Oh you’re mad.
          Too bad
          So sad
          It sucks to be you.
          Cry me a river toots.

    1. You trumphuckers own, laziness, sloppiness, and stupidity.

      1. Still at it with the offensive concocted words. Classy. Certainly you can find a site that appreciates your stupidity. Republicans work and Democrats take.

  6. And yet Biden said this about a ban. “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, to uh, and fear mongering,” Biden continued.
    So who is confused or most likely creating rhetoric to condemn President Trump.

  7. Yet another nothing burger created an perpetrated on the American people by the media. First they twist what Dr. Fauci said in his interview to make it appear that he was blaming the President for not taking swift and decisive action, which is not at all what he said. Then they take a retweet of the President, who is correcting wrong information in that original tweet, and simply because the original tweet called for Fauci to be fired, the media immediately decides that Trump is going to fire Fauci, when Trump referenced nothing but the misinformation in the original tweet. We no longer have a media, we have propagandists who create news for the purpose of stoking fear and negatively impacting the President for political purposes, and it’s not surprising that the majority of this always seems to originate with CNN. Watch Dr. Fauci’s full interview with CNN and then re-read Trump’s retweet response to the original tweet and neither of them tell the story that the MSM has painted. No matter how careful Dr. Fauci is with choosing his words, the MSM purposefully paints them to mean something he specifically takes great pains not to say.

  8. As recently as March 12th 45 believed COVID-19 was nothing more than the common cold!

    1. Get your facts straight or STFU

      On Jan. 31, the Trump administration declared a public health emergency for the novel coronavirus and announced travel restrictions to and from China, effective Feb. 2.

      1. Larry is confused.

        On January 3, King Donald The Loser was briefed on the dangers of a pending pandemic by the military. On February 3, he was given his black swan briefing. Even later KDTL was still playing down the dangers of the Trump virus and doling out misinformation and countering the experts with his nonsense.

        1. Hey confuction you lying piece of communist shit. That statement you just made was proven false by the very people you claim to have said it. They even said it was a lie. You communists are nothing but a pack of lying, deceitful, America hating trash and need to be taken out and thrown in the toilet where you belong. You and your party are PURE EVIL AND HATE!!!!

      2. Larry, Dear Leader didn’t get semi-serious about the Trump virus until mid-March.

  9. The White House is confused.

    The media did not take King Donald The Loser’s ACTION of retweeting the message out of context. He did that by his own hand. If he doesn’t want to have his own ACTIONS taken out of context, don’t do that. Once a pattern is set, it is difficult to deny what the pattern means, in the end.

    1. Typical democrat who can’t read. Trump pointed out his decisive action January 21 while Fauci stated February 29, 2020 not to change anything.
      “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you [One America News Network]”
      You like all democrats have TDS so bad your mind is gone like Slow Joek

      1. IJR is way to confusing with sooo many members calling themselves “Friend”.

    2. That TDS you seem to be suffering from can be just as damaging as this virus, so I hear.

      1. On Jan. 31, the Trump administration declared a public health emergency for the novel coronavirus and announced travel restrictions to and from China, effective Feb. 2.

        1. By then the Trump virus had been unlesshed on a nation that was woefully unprepared for what was necessary to deal with it.

    3. The pattern here is that the media twisted what both Dr. Fauci and Donald Trump said to create a story that did not even exist. You cannot watch Dr. Fauci’s full interview and come away with the idea that he was blaming Trump for not acting soon enough. That is not even remotely close to what he said, and you can’t infer that Trump wants to fire Fauci because he retweets a tweet that mentions it, when he specifically says that information in it is wrong.

    4. Again confuction you are a lying piece of communist shit. You have NOTHING this country needs or wants. Take your totalitarianism and your lying self to a country that will accept you and your lying unintelligent comments.

        1. You should do the Refusefascism since that is your party.
