Trump: Stop Attacking Top Infectious Disease Expert and Downplaying COVID-19

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States of America

Goal: Stop trying to turn the public against Dr. Anthony Fauci with insults and false claims.

President Trump claimed in reference to the coronavirus that “people are tired of hearing Fauci and these idiots, all these idiots who got it wrong,” despite the fact that COVID-19 cases are surging toward a new peak. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, has been consistent in urging the public to wear a mask and social distance.

Trump also called Fauci “a disaster” just days after the United States reported 70,450 new coronavirus cases, which is the highest number since July 24th. It appears his campaign strategy is to create a public enemy out of Fauci, convincing his supporters that government scientists are uninformed liars and that the coronavirus is merely a dramatization of the media.

This harmful rhetoric towards a virus that has killed around 220,000 Americans will only lead to more preventable deaths. Sign below to demand Trump stop trying to turn the public against Dr. Fauci with insults and false claims.


Dear President Trump,

Calling your behavior toward the nation’s top infectious disease expert immature would be an understatement. In the midst of a pandemic that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, you continue to blame the experts and call the trusted Dr. Fauci “a disaster” and an “idiot.”

Your ploy to downplay the threat of the coronavirus is only leading to more deaths on your watch. In order to prioritize public health, I demand that you stop making a public enemy out of Fauci and instead praise him for his expert advice.
