Now that over 3,000 email correspondences between Dr. Fauci and reporters, tech CEOs, and more were made public under the Freedom of Information Act, Trump’s decisions behind his pandemic guidance are being vindicated.
The emails are showing that Fauci, head of the NIAID, opposed two of Trump’s most effective measures that undoubtedly saved lives and moved us closer to returning to normal, namely closing the US border to China and moving forward with Operation Warp Speed.
Trump said in a statement Thursday that, more significantly, these emails bring up “a lot of questions that must be answered by Dr. Fauci,” specifically about his knowledge of “‘gain of function’ research.”
Trump also took the opportunity to slam China, stating, “even the so-called ‘enemy,’ are beginning to say that President Trump was right about the China Virus coming from the Wuhan Lab,” he said in a separate statement.
“China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused!” Trump added.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do.
For instance, I closed our Borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed. The Democrats and the Fake News Media even called me a “xenophobe.” In the end, we saw this was a life-saving decision, and likewise with closing our borders to Europe, specifically to certain heavily infected countries. I was later given credit, even by “Tony,” for saving hundreds of thousands of lives.
Dr. Fauci also didn’t put an emphasis on speed of vaccine production because he thought it would take 3, 4, or maybe even 5 years to create. I got it done in less than 9 months with Operation Warp Speed. In retrospect, the vaccine is saving the world. Then, I placed the greatest bet in history. We ordered billions of dollars’ worth of vaccines before we knew it even worked. Had that not been done, our wonderful vaccines would not have been administered until October of this year. No one would’ve had the shot that has now saved the world and millions of lives!
Also, Dr. Fauci was totally against masks when even I thought they would at least be helpful. He then changed his mind completely and became a radical masker!
There are a lot of questions that must be answered by Dr. Fauci. The funding of Wuhan by the U.S. was foolishly started by the Obama Administration in 2014 but ended under the Trump Administration. When I heard about it, I said “no way.” What did Dr. Fauci know about “gain of function” research, and when did he know it?
