As Dr. Fauci Announced his Retirement, he Wishes to put the Political Criticisms behind him
In a tell-all interview with Politico, Anthony Fauci explains his future, the word during the Covid pandemic, and the political backlash he has faced and may continue to face...
Anthony Fauci is leaving his position by the end of President Biden’s term after nearly 50+ years of service spanning seven presidents. He said, “We're in a pattern now. If somebody says, 'You'll leave when we don't have Covid anymore,' then I will be 105. I think we're going to be living with this.”
Covid is a disease that no country has genuinely conquered. Anthony Fauci wishes to repair the national bonds that the pandemic upended and to ease the polarization at the partisan level that has turned the science community into a blistering lightning rod.
“We developed an interesting relationship. Two guys from New York, different in their opinions and their ideology, but still, two guys who grew up in the same environments of this city. I think that we are related to each other in that regard.”
Fauci said of his relationship with Trump.
If there happens to be a Republican-controlled House or Senate next year, Fauci has already begun to prepare for a possible set of attacks against him. Many nominees may be making their last push for November running on the topics of pandemic lockdowns, closing schools, and the on and off mask requirements around the country. He said, “They're going to try and come after me, anyway. I mean, probably less so if I'm not in the job. I don't make that a consideration in my career decision.”
If Anthony Fauci is called to testify, he stated he would simply reiterate the importance of vaccines and boosters, but also acknowledge there may never be a set time in which the country can say it is cleared of Covid. Even as the tolling of the virus has slowed, it continues to kill more than 300 Americans a day. Dr. Fauci said, “What we have right now, I think we're almost at a steady state.”
