Trump says Dr Fauci is a ‘very nice man’

Donald Trump has called Dr Anthony Fauci a “very nice man” after labelling America’s top infectious disease expert a “disaster” in a leaked campaign call.

The president delivered an off-the-cuff assessment of the widely respected government scientist, telling campaign staffers on a conference call: “Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we’d have 500,000 deaths,”

Mr Trump has accurately noted the senior National Institutes of Health official initially said face-coverings were not necessary, only to later say masks would help slow the spread of the virus.
