Trump deepens rift with top doctor Fauci on US reopening

Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump on Wednesday deepened his rift with top medical advisor Anthony Fauci over loosening coronavirus restrictions, saying they “totally” disagree on whether to keep schools closed.

The issue of whether students should return to schools and universities in September is emerging as a flashpoint in the standoff between the White House and medical experts over how quickly to reopen the country.

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House, said he found Fauci’s latest call for a highly cautious reopening “not acceptable.”

“We’re opening our country, people want it open, the schools are going to be open,” Trump said.
