Peter Navarro: Fauci ‘did more damage to this nation than anyone this side of the Bat Lady of Wuhan’

Fauci ‘did more damage to this nation than anyone this side of the Bat Lady of Wuhan’ and went behind Trump’s back to lift the ban on gain-of-function research, ex-aide Peter Navarro claims

  • Navarro writes: Dr. Fauci did ‘more damage to this nation, President Trump and the world than anyone else this side of the Bat Lady of Wuhan’ 
  • He claims that Fauci did more damage than Shi Zhengli, a Chinese virologist who researches  coronaviruses originating from bats at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where COVID-19 is thought to have originally leaked from. 
  • Navarro says Fauci is responsible for ‘everything from the Wuhan lab gain-of-function catastrophe and suppression of low-cost therapeutics’
  • Also said the doctor is to blame for ‘the political, partisan and deadly delay in delivering the Trump vaccines to the American people’
  • ‘In Trump Time, A Journal of America’s Plague Year’ will become widely available on Tuesday


Peter Navarro said in a new book coming out this week that Dr. Anthony Fauci damaged the U.S. and former President Donald Trump more than ‘the Bat Lady of Wuhan.’

The former Trump economic adviser is referring to Shi Zhengli, a Chinese virologist who researches SARS coronaviruses originating from bats at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where COVID-19 is thought to have originally leaked from. 

Navarro writes: Dr. Fauci did ‘more damage to this nation, President Trump and the world than anyone else this side of the Bat Lady of Wuhan.’

In the book, the ex-Trump aide holds Fauci accountable for ‘everything from the Wuhan lab gain-of-function catastrophe and suppression of low-cost therapeutics such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin to the political, partisan and deadly delay in delivering the Trump vaccines to the American people.’

‘In Trump Time, A Journal of America’s Plague Year’ will become widely available on Tuesday.

According to the New York Post, the book takes aim at Fauci, who served as a chief medical adviser to both President Trump and current President Joe Biden. 

Fauci’s wrongdoings, according to Navarro, included not telling Trump or the coronavirus task force that he knew the lab in Wuhan was conducting gain of function research on bat coronaviruses.

The top immunologist at the National Institutes of Health has come under fire from Republicans for allegedly lying about his agency funding this research at the lab in China.

Fauci, Navarro writes, ‘went behind the back of the Trump White House in 2017 to lift the ban on dangerous ‘gain-of-function’ experiments.’

‘It was Fauci’s agency,’ he continues, ‘that helped fund and orchestrate such… experiments at a bioweapons lab in Wuhan, China, where the pandemic almost certainly originated. And it was Fauci who, as we now know from a trove of emails, was being told as early as January 31, 2020, that the virus was likely engineered.’

Navarro also said in his book that Fauci was vehemently against restricting travel from China at the onset of the pandemic when President Trump and some of his aides recommended it before the virus hit the U.S.

The economic adviser claimed that during a Situation Room meeting on January 27, 2020 the doctor said: ‘In my experience, travel restrictions don’t work.’

A harsh and repeated critic of Fauci is Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist by trade before becoming a senator.

Paul has often gotten into heated and public arguments with Fauci over gain of function research and whether the U.S. funded this type of project in Wuhan that ultimately led to the lab leak that caused the coronavirus pandemic.

The two have even gotten into spats over the definition of the term gain of function, which is a medical research ability that looks to genetically alter the way organisms process viruses.

Specifically in this sense, they are talking about genetically altering a virus to be able to jump from bats to humans and be more deadly or effective in humans.

An October poll shows that confidence in Fauci is dwindling.

The Rasmussen Reports survey taken toward the end of last month shows 49 per cent of American voters think that Fauci is lying about funding gain of function research in China.

Another 33 per cent believe Fauci has told the truth while almost a fifth of respondents – 19 per cent – say they aren’t sure.

The figure has declined 7 per cent from a June poll, where 40 per cent said they believed Fauci had told the truth.
