US President Donald Trump pacified the rumours of a rift between him and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci as he spoke to journalists in Washington DC, on Wednesday.
«We're all in the same team, including Dr. Fauci,» Trump stated. «We want to get rid of this mess that China sent us,» he added, insisting, «everybody's working on the same line and doing very well.»
Answering a journalist's question on whether the White House economic adviser Peter Navarro «had gone rogue» in a written op-ed for USA Today’s website accusing Dr. Fauci of having been «wrong about everything» in terms of dealing with the coronavirus, Trump insisted that he had a good relationship with the doctor.
«Well, he [Navarro] made a statement representing himself. He shouldn't be doing that. No, I have a very good relationship with Anthony [Fauci],» he stressed.
