Ron Paul, the former Libertarian nominee for president, said the Trump administration should fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease doctor, because he is a fraud intent on using the virus to gain total control of the American people.
Paul took Fauci to task after an interview the disease expert gave on CNN where he mentioned the possibility of immunity cards for Americans who have recovered from the virus. Fauci said it was “possible” that these cards could be used as the U.S. slowly gets back to work.
“The plan that they have is when things are getting back to normal, yes, people can return to their work, and they do things and go to the golf course if they get a stamp of approval. Your liberties are there if you get a proper stamp from the government,” Paul said.

Paul said these measures are an excuse by Fauci to have “total control over the people.”
“He should be fired, but if you don’t do it in the literal sense, the people have to fire him,” Paul said. “They have to fire him by saying ‘he’s a fraud.’”
Paul pointed to recent projections that estimate far fewer deaths from the coronavirus in the U.S. than previously estimated and criticized the government’s decision to go ahead and “destroy peoples’ civil liberties.
He said the government spent a lot of money and tried to “make up an excuse on why the stock market actually went down—all kinds of things by having this coronavirus event blown way out of proportion.”
Many state leaders insist that the only reason why coronavirus infections are lower than expected is because they took swift action to limit public movement. California, for example, just recently said cases there may be plateauing, but residents should prepare to stay indoors for more months.
Many Americans are uneasy with the government’s reach into our everyday lives. Local governments got to determine what businesses are “essential” and closed businesses they deemed “unessential.”
Fauci has become the face of President Trump’s coronavirus task force and is a frequent guest on primetime shows. He has become something of a celebrity and has fans across the county, but has also received threats and requires security.
The Daily Caller reported that Paul, who is a doctor, once called the coronavirus a “big hoax.”
“People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus ‘pandemic’ could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit — financially or politically — from the ensuing panic,” he wrote, according to the report.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., his son, recently announced that he recovered from the virus and was volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in his community.
