“Why is the White House politicizing the pandemic by tweeting out that there was no vaccine available until Joe Biden became president?” asked Tapper. “It’s not true.”
“So you’re talking to the wrong person,” deflected Fauci. “I wasn’t involved in the tweet. I just can’t explain it. Sorry.”
Tapper responded by asking Fauci if he agreed it was important to have facts about the vaccine, “whether it’s from the Trump White House or the Biden White House,” and that the vaccine became available before Biden was sworn in.
Fauci agreed, adding, “I think from a pure accuracy, that’s not a correct statement.”
