Dr. Anthony Fauci describes his 'very different' relationships with 5 presidents | CBS News |

Fauci, who has been a pragmatic, data-driven presence during the White House coronavirus task force briefings, has frequently dissented with Trump's claims pertaining to the outbreak, having refuted the President to his face and spoken publicly about working to get Trump's professed falsehoods "corrected for the next time."

Fauci said that he got to know President George W. Bush amid the crises of 9/11 and the 2001 anthrax attacks before he "had the privilege of being close to him and developing PEPFAR," or the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.

However, as Fauci's profile in the pandemic crisis grew up, as did concern for his well-being. Fauci's advice to Trump to keep the country as locked up as possible to help control the spread of the virus has not won fans among some fervent right-wing voices.

Fauci was among the Trump team's health advisers encouraging the continuation of the current guidelines after the president heard from business leaders and conservative allies that the restrictions were more damaging than the virus itself.

In fact, Trump's decision to extend these guidelines came after Fauci and Birx made a solid presentation with the new models that showed 100,000 to 200,000 people could die, a source familiar with the president's decision told CNN.

"You don't make the chronology, the virus makes the chronology," Fauci told CNN last month when asked how long the new coronavirus could affect daily life in the United States.
