Can Trump fire Anthony Fauci? “Unimaginable,” says NIH Dir
“Nobody has asked me to do that, and I find that concept unimaginable,” said Francis Collins, Director of National Institutes of Health (NIH) on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “And I am amused that everybody’s calling me Dr. Fauci’s boss because his real boss is his wife, Christine Grady. She might have something to say about that.”
The rumors that Trump was trying to oust Fauci came after Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to Trump published an op-ed piece in USA Today where he accused Fauci of being “wrong about everything.”
“Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on,” Navarro wrote.
