With but a day left in this infernal election, President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are making their last pitches to their constituents, hoping to lock in every possible voter that they can before tomorrow.
They’re making promises and deals, slinging insults at one another, and each painting a dim picture of what America would look like if they lost.
President Trump is even going so far as to suggest to a rally crowd that he could fire Dr. Anthony Fauci sometime after the election.
Trump made the remark during a rally that capped off a marathon day in which the president visited five battleground states.
“We’re going to have a safe vaccine that ends the pandemic,” Trump promised the crowd. Even without it, he said, “we’re rounding the turn.”
He repeated complaints he has made along the campaign trail about being tired of discussing the pandemic, which has killed more than 231,000 people in the USA, and again claimed that his opponents would no longer be concerned about the virus after the election.
“Fire Fauci!” the crowd began to chant.
Trump paused briefly to listen to the refrain before telling his supporters, “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait till a little bit after the election, please.”
“I appreciate the advice. I appreciate the advice,” Trump continued. “No, he’s been wrong though a lot. He’s a nice man though.”
But, despite the President’s claim that he would be considering such a move, it doesn’t appear as though he would even have the authority to do so.
