President Trump said he is not going to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of his administration's coronavirus task force, despite retweeting a call to fire Fauci this morning.
At his daily coronavirus press briefing, a reporter asked Trump if he noticed the #FireFauci hashtag when he retweeted the post. The President acknowledged he saw it and responded "I retweeted somebody" and then added "that is somebody's opinion."
"I was immediately called upon that and I was like, no I like him. I think he's terrific," Trump said.
The President said that him and Fauci are on the same page saying, "we have been from the beginning."
