The White House released a statement Monday shutting down the mainstream “ridiculous” media reports alleging that the President is considering firing Coronavirus Task Force member and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying the story is completely false and that the President has no plans to fire him.
Here is the statement:

The President retweeted a tweet on Thursday from DeAnna Lorraine, a former Republican congressional candidate who attempted to unseat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who argued that it’s “Time to #FireFauci” over criticism that Trump didn’t act early enough to mitigate the spread if the coronavirus.
Trump, however, didn’t acknowledge Lorraine’s call to fire the doctor and merely slammed the criticism against his actions in combating the virus, “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you @OAN.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
