(AmericanProsperity.com) – As fall descends upon us, many Americans grow tired of lockdowns and social distancing, and look forward to spending time with friends and family over the holidays. However, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a leader in the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, criticized the government’s response as we head into the colder months.
Dr. Fauci spoke with The Washington Post about the expected rise in COVID-19 cases through the end of this year, warning that “the stars are aligned in the wrong place,” likely to result in higher numbers of cases. In addition, he stated:
“You could not possibly be positioned more poorly," Dr. Anthony Fauci said of the state of the pandemic in the U.S. as the country heads into winter. https://t.co/u8YPkEkF5p

During the interview, Fauci applauded Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for “taking it seriously from a public health perspective” in contrast to President Donald Trump’s emphasis on economic recovery. In response, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere called Fauci’s statement “unacceptable” and accused him of playing politics a mere days before Election Day.
Through his statements, Dr. Fauci criticized his own response to the COVID-19 pandemic and implied that he would rather Americans stay isolated at home, many who are without work, than see them work hard to support their families. To the country’s benefit, President Trump repeatedly prioritized freedom over fear and has allowed the citizens to choose how they will react to the risks of COVID-19.
