With reports circling about President Trump and infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci’s strained relationship, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained the situation on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning.

Fauci represents one singular viewpoint in the entire task force, McEnany said. He is tasked with looking at matters from a public health standpoint while other members weigh the economic and social impacts of lockdowns and rules.

“The point of the task force is to be a whole of government look at what is best for this country,” McEnany said. “Dr. Fauci is one member of a team, but rest assured his viewpoint is represented and the information gets to the President through the task force.”

The Press Secretary cited Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services for Mental Health and Substance Use, as another member who evaluates the risks of lockdowns with issues like increased suicide and drug overdoses.

The different members have unique perspectives and should be looked at wholistically, instead of just looking at one member’s opinion on the information they have been studying.

Monday’s interview follows reports last week that the President has sidelined Fauci and not been briefed personally by him in two months. McEnany said the information Fauci provides is put before the President, through other Task Force members.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
