Fauci Says He Hasn’t Spoken With Biden’s Team Yet Due To His ‘Compromised Position’

Dr. Anthony Fauci advised the USA Today editorial board in a livestreamed interview on Wednesday that he had not but communicated with the transition crew of President-elect Joe Biden ― seemingly as a result of the crew understood that he was nonetheless squarely in the midst of the twilight days of the Donald Trump administration. 

“If Ron Klain ― Biden’s incoming chief of staff who has a lot of experience with public health ― were to call you after this meeting, are you allowed to take his call or have you been told you’re forbidden to speak with the Biden transition folks?” requested the paper’s editorial web page editor, Bill Sternberg.

“I have not been formally told that anything is forbidden,” Fauci replied. “But it’s quite obvious that this is a very sensitive period. … I don’t want to get into that. I have tried to the best of my ability to stay out of the political aspects and just focus on my role as a public health person, a physician and a scientist. To be honest with you, I believe that the Biden people, including Ron Klain, understand that and don’t want to put me in a compromised position.”

Fauci added that clean presidential transitions are important in American politics, likening them to races with runners passing batons: “You’re all running together. And you pass the baton. That’s what a smooth transition is. It’s very, very much like a relay race.”

The delicate place of Fauci ― who has labored beneath six presidents, from Ronald Reagan to Trump ― will be seen in Trump’s alternating reward and criticism for him all through the coronavirus pandemic. The president has switched between calling the infectious illness professional a “wonderful guy,” undermining his COVID-19 security recommendations, and tossing round the concept he would hearth Fauci “a little bit after” the election. 

Dr. Scott Atlas, whom Trump appointed as coronavirus process pressure adviser in August, has additionally taken goal at Fauci, calling him a “political animal” who had misplaced credibility along with his fixed media appearances, whereas former White House strategist Steve Bannon insinuated that Fauci wanted to be beheaded, along with his head caught on a pike exterior the Oval Office. 

Fauci has largely saved his head down and prevented making direct condemnations of the negativity within the Trump administration surrounding his COVID-19 efforts. He did acknowledge Bannon’s horrific remarks, calling them “kind of unusual” and “not the kind of thing you think about when you’re going through medical school to become a physician.”
