Donald Trump questions low pandemic approval rates and says, "Nobody likes me."


President Donald Trump complained of his low approval ratings and compared his popularity to that of Dr. Anthony Fauci during a press conference on Tuesday and said, "Nobody likes me."

The president said he had a "very good" relationship with Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, and said his high approval rating would be carried across the Trump administration as they worked together to fight the virus.

Trump was asked about his views on Fauci after retweeting a message Monday night alleging that the doctor had misled the public about hydroxychloroquine.

"I get on very well with him and I agree with many of his statements," Trump insisted.

"So it is somehow curious, a man works for us, with us very closely, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx too, very highly – and yet they are highly thought, but nobody likes me?" Trump said. Fauci pictured above

& # 39; It is interesting: he has a very good approval rate. And I like that, it's good. Because remember: He works for this administration. He works with us … He works with our administration. And for the most part we did what he and others – and Dr. Birx and others – recommended, ”he said.

Trump then turned the tables and compared it to his own popularity given the criticism of how he dealt with the pandemic, which infected more than 4.3 million people in the United States and killed more than 149,000 people.

& # 39; And he has this high approval rate. Why don't I have a high level of virus and administration approval? We should have it very high, «Trump argued.

"So it's kind of strange that a man works for us, very closely with us, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx too, thought very highly – and yet they are thought highly, but nobody likes me?

"It can only be my personality, that's all," said the president.

Dr. Anthony Fauci dismissed Trump's Twitter spree on Monday night praising hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID-19 as opposed to medical research, saying Fauci "misled" the country with the drug. On Tuesday morning, Fauci said he was not tweeting or reading the President's posts. "I don't know how to go about it," said Fauci

Trump came under fire after his Twitter spree on Monday night when he retweeted a series of posts praising the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19.

He was also sentenced to twice watch a video of Dr. Retweeted Stella Immanuel, who claimed that hydroxychloroquine was a "cure" for coronaviruses, but her clips were removed by Twitter for misinformation about coronaviruses.

Donald Trump Jr. also shared a video of her speech and his account has been suspended.

Dr. Immanuel has a long history of supporting conspiracy theories, and Trump ended his press conference on Tuesday as he expressed her own retweets of her claims.

According to state records, she received a medical license in Texas in November.

On Tuesday morning, Fauci rejected Trump's Twitter rant on Monday evening, which made his contribution to Dr. Immanuel's speech and criticism of Fauci included.

"I don't know how to go about it," the nation's best immunologist told Good Morning America about the President's tweet storm. "I will definitely continue my work."

"I, you know, I don't tweet, I don't – I don't even read them," said 79-year-old Fauci to George Stephanopoulos, ABC News presenter. "So I don't really want to go there."

President Trump defended Dr. Stella Immanuel, who has long promoted conspiracy theories and claims that hydroxy cures the coronavirus. According to state records, she received a medical license in Texas in November

Trump has two videos of Dr. Stella Immanuel retweeted who spoke before the US Capitol on Friday. Others call themselves "America & # 39; s Frontline Doctors". She claimed that the anti-malaria drug hydroxycloroquine was effective in treating COVID-19, although other medical research refuted it

"She was on the air with many other doctors," Trump said during Tuesday's press conference when he was retweeted by Dr. Immanuel's speech was asked.

& # 39; They were big fans of hydroxychloroquine. And I found her very impressive in the sense that she was from where she came from – I don't know which country she comes from – but she says that she's had tremendous success with hundreds of different patients and I thought hers Voice is an important voice, but I don't know anything about it. & # 39;

The president has been pressurized by allegations made by Immanuel, including face masks that don't work in the fight against COVID-19, foreign DNA used in prescriptions, and the medical community trying to make a vaccine to a person to make immune to religion.

Trump ended the matter by saying "thank you" and leaving the podium.

In May, the World Health Organization stopped its hydroxychloroquine trial. The National Institutes for Health also canceled their study in June after finding that it did not benefit the patients examined.

Trump admitted in May that he was on a two-week course of the drug under a coronavirus regime.

He said Tuesday that "many doctors" think hydroxy is successful.

"Many doctors think it's extremely successful," he said. & # 39; The hydroxychloroquine coupled with the Z-Pack. And some people think it has become political. I took it for 14 days. And I am here. I think it works in the early stages. I think doctors on the front line believe that too. Something. Lots. So let's look at that. & # 39;
