Fauci says his remarks have been taken’ out of context in Trump's ad

The ad, released last week, discusses Trump's personal efforts to recover from the coronavirus, as well as his administration's work in tackling the epidemic. Instead of 30 seconds, he uses Foucault's old remarks in a way that suggests he is praising the president.

But the remarks come from a March interview were Foucault, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, was discussing broader efforts, including the White House corona. Includes virus task force.


"In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly supported any political candidate," Fauci said in a statement.


"The comments attributed to me in the GOP campaign ad without my permission were taken in the context of a broader statement months ago about the efforts of federal public health officials," the statement added.


Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh defended the ad in a statement Sunday, saying Foucault's words were "correct, and directly from Dr. Fauci's mouth."


Murtaza's statement added, "As Dr. Fauci recently testified in the Senate, President Trump has taken the virus seriously from the beginning, acted quickly and saved lives."


Trump himself echoed those sentiments in a tweet on Sunday: "They are really Dr. Fauci's own words. According to some governors, we have done an 'extraordinary' job."


Foucault and Trump have not always agreed on how to deal with the epidemic, which has affected about 7.7 million people in the United States and killed more than 214,000. The poll found that most voters refused to deal with the president's crisis.
