Skip to comments.Patrick Buchanan: Fauci vs. Trump — who's right?

Moreover, while Fauci and Redfield are specialists in epidemics, Trumps portfolio goes far beyond that.
He is chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, responsible for the security and defense of the nation. His portfolio is broader and deeper than those of Fauci and Redfield.
In the first hours of the Normandy invasion, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower must have been rightly alarmed about the high U.S. casualties on Omaha Beach. But he also had to concern himself with the failure to capture the Port of Caen to bring ashore the armor to stop any German counterattack that might turn D-Day into another Anzio.
Ike could not worry about casualties alone.
According to The Washington Post, economists already project that 100,000 small businesses have shuttered, never to reopen.
(D)eeper and longer recessions can leave behind lasting damage to the productive capacity of the economy, warned Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell on Wednesday. Avoidable household and business insolvencies can weigh on growth for years to come.
Ultimately, Fauci is not the decider here. Trump is.
It is he who is accountable to the nation for weighing the losses, both human and material, because of his decisions.
Fauci may be the best at what he does, but he is still only an adviser. As John F. Kennedy said after the Bay of Pigs, it is the president who ultimately bears responsibility for what he does and fails to do, while the advisers may move on to new advice.
Believing he can do no more than his White House is now doing to contain the incidence of cases, hospitalizations and deaths, Trump has decided his primary job is to prevent the nation from a catastrophic economic collapse from which it might take years to recover.

BKMRK. Thanks for pulling this all together.
Fauci is one tract, he is wrong. Trump listened to Fauci, he is wrong.
Ping. Thanks for your hard work assembling this list
Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit stole that list of 15 from Mark Simone, changed some of the html and wording around and didn’t credit:
IMO in the image the doctors are virtue signaling that they’ve been muzzled. I think Trump has made his decision and is fed-up with being undermined.
But that is what the Gateway Pundit always does. Lying and stealing.
Perhaps it can be said Trump listened to his ‘experts’ to much
This flies in the face of the narrative that he is a dictator who listens to no one.
Apparently he relied on the advise of those who he thought had more expertise on medical knowledge.
Fauci is WRONG! Trump is right.
Trump has the tougher,and more important,job here.
Pres. Trump should (IMHO) have listened to his instincts from Day One, not let some 35-year bureaucrat hired by VP Pence dictate national policy. Kind of doubt Fauci was anywhere near the top of his class in med school. How many decades has it been since he actually treated a patient?
Fauci then attended medical school at Cornell University Medical College where he graduated first in his class with a Doctor of Medicine in 1966.
Anybody who knows the answer - doesn't know what they are talking about.
“And [Trump] will be responsible for whether the policy succeeds or opens the floodgates to a second and worse wave, should it come.
Since most of the population is still shopping at the “essential” businesses, and the virus has not exploded, then it stands to reason that it will not explode when all the businesses are opened.
If the lock down continues, then a destroyed economy will result in much more starvation, disease, and death than the virus.
The responsibility lies, first, with the Chicoms, and then with our politicians who promoted globalism and unfettered immigration and international travel.
Yup. Fauci like a lot of doctors looks at everything through a narrow medical lens. Early on in this Trump seemed to indicate that he understood this. Then Trump’s friend got sick and died with COVID and I think emotions got the best of him.
But the status quo is unsustainable so muzzling Fauci is now an imperative.
