Former Trump White House policy advisor Peter Navarro bluntly labeled Dr. Anthony Fauci as “evil” for his role in gain-of-function research during a Wednesday interview on the Seattle-based Jason Rantz Show.
During a discussion of Navarro’s new book, “In Trump Time,” the former trade adviser defensively discussed the Trump administration’s proactiveness in the early days of the pandemic. The book’s title is Navarro’s reference to the former president’s ability to “get things done quickly.”
Rantz questioned Navarro on whether he believed that Trump made a mistake by not canning Fauci instead of allowing him to preen in front of the media during the onset of the pandemic.
At that point, Navarro stated that he had advised Trump twice to boot Fauci. However, he didn’t blame him for not taking his advice at the time.
“But it was a mistake for the Republic because that man is evil. Make no mistake about this. He is evil because he was at the American bureaucracy that used taxpayer dollars” to pursue gain-of-function experiments, he proclaimed.
During the interview, Rantz also asserted that while the leftist media savaged Trump’s response to COVID-19, MSNBC and CNN idolized Fauci as some sort of “God-like” figure regardless of his involvement with dangerous virus research, his connection to the communist Chinese, or the fact that he has flip-flopped countless times concerning advice on handling the pandemic. Rantz referred to it as more “political” than scientific.
“So, what was your experience with him behind the scenes?” Rantz asked Navarro regarding Fauci.
“I will make the prediction that after the American people read “In Trump Time,” that Fauci will be gone. His partner in crime, Francis Collins, has been forced to resign. That just happened in the last couple of days,” he replied.
“My experience with Fauci, in chapter two of ‘In Trump Time,’ I said in the Situation Room, the date’s January 28th, the boss has sent me there to argue on behalf of the travel ban, to kind of bring the task force in line,” Navarro recalled. “And, I walk into this room and there’s a lot of people I know there. Mulvaney, the chief of staff chairing it, he’s at the end of the table. I’ve got Pompeo’s guy on my left shoulder.”
“Across from me, you got the CDC’s Redfield. I recognize, of course, Azar, who’s helping the service. And there’s this guy sitting across from me, round glasses, little guy, a little smirk on his face and didn’t know who he was. Didn’t know he walked on water, Didn’t know his name was St. Fauci. But within three minutes, I’m in a screaming match with this son-of-a-gun and he’s adamantly opposed to the travel ban,” he recounted.
“I came out of there thinking, ‘Wow, that guy thinks he’s smarter than he is,’ and two, more importantly, ‘That guy’s going to hurt us and the President,’” Navarro declared.
He made the case that the coronavirus was partially engineered at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, with gain-of-function research actively enhancing, either by accident or by design, the virus’ formidable powers of transmission. Navarro also reiterated that Fauci will go down for the things he’s done in connection to the pandemic.
Gain-of-function research involves the manipulation of pathogens to make them more infectious and dangerous to humans for “research” purposes.
Fauci serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and has become the left’s face in the fight against the pandemic. He effortlessly transitioned to the Biden administration and has since ensconced himself as the ultimate authority on the virus.
