President Trump responded to supporters during a rally on Sunday when they chanted “fire” Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Earlier on Sunday, the White House condemned Dr. Fauci for “playing politics’ over the coronavirus outbreak just days before the election.

The president seemed slightly taken aback when crowds at a rally in Opa-Locka, Florida started chanting “FIRE FAUCI!”

He responded however, saying : “Don’t tell anybody but let me wait ’til a little after the election, please”

Breitbart reports: The crowd cheered wildly.

“I appreciate the advice,” Trump said.

Trump went on to note that Fauci advised him not to close the border with China, and then advised Americans to not wear masks before he changed his advice.

“He’s been wrong on a lot,” Trump said. “He’s a nice man though.”

Trump said Fauci admitted that he saved tens of thousands of lives with the China travel ban during the coronavirus spread.

The president said the coronavirus vaccine would be available shortly and that the military was preparing to deliver it to the American public.

“We’re going to take of our seniors first,” Trump said. “Is it okay if we take care of our seniors first?”

The crowd cheered wildly.
