Following a reported behind-the-scenes blowup at the White House on Saturday night, a top economic adviser for President Donald Trump is explaining why he challenged Dr. Anthony Fauci — a leading voice on the coronavirus task force — on a matter of science.
In a tense confrontation on CNN’s New Day Monday, anchor John Berman grilled economic advisor Peter Navarro on why he’s more suited to dispense medical opinions than Dr. Fauci. Specifically, during what Axios called an “epic Situation Room showdown” on Saturday night, Navarro railed at Fauci over his words of caution about the effectiveness of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in fighting the coronavirus.
“So why is Dr. Anthony Fauci, the lead infectious disease doctor in the country, wrong about this, in your opinion?” Berman said.
“What are your qualifications to weigh in on medicines more than Dr. Anthony Fauci? Why should we listen to you and not Dr. Fauci?”
The Trump economic advisor went on to tout the work of Dr. William Grace — who appeared recently on Fox News with Laura Ingraham to advocate for hydroxychloroquine — and suggested that Berman invite Grace on his program. Navarro then responded to Berman challenging him on his bona fides.
