Megyn Kelly Presses Trump On Whether He Wants A ‘Do-Over’ On Fauci

Sep 14, 2023 | Political News

Conservative political journalist Megyn Kelly confronted former President Donald Trump over whether he regrets his approach to the COVID-19 pandemic in an interview released Tuesday.

Kelly pressed Trump over his decision to not fire then-White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci. She argued that Trump helped elevate Fauci’s profile to celebrity status, despite the fact he was “loathed” by millions of Republicans.

“You made him a star,” Kelly said. “This is the criticism of you, that you made him the face of the White House coronavirus task force, that he was out at every presser, that he was running herd for the administration on COVID, and that you actually gave him a presidential Commendation before he left office.” (RELATED: Blue City College Reinstates Mask Mandate To Kick Off Fall Semester)
