Sources told The Daily Beast that Trump had been hate-watching Fauci's TV interviews.
One source said Trump felt that "people are working to downgrade his legacy out of hatred.".
Former President Donald Trump has been obsessively and furiously watching Dr. Anthony Fauci's TV interviews since President Joe Biden took office, The Daily Beast reported on Sunday, citing sources.
Fauci has been transparent about his relief to be working under a new administration, saying at a White House press briefing on Thursday that it was "a somewhat liberating feeling.".
Fauci told CNN on Friday that Trump "very likely" cost American lives by spreading lies about the pandemic.
(Trump, in fact, did not have the power to directly fire Fauci because he is a civil-service employee and not a political appointee.).
Trump and Fauci often clashed over how to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak and over the government's messaging. »
