President Trump said it was “fortunate” that he didn’t follow the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci, following the release of thousands of Fauci’s emails as part of a FOIA request by Buzzfeed.

“After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do,” Trump said in a statement.

Fauci “didn’t put an emphasis on speed of vaccine production because he thought it would take 3, 4, or maybe even 5 years to create,” Trump said. “I got it done in less than nine months with Operation Warp Speed. In retrospect, the vaccine is saving the world.”

“Also,” the former president added, “Dr. Fauci was totally against masks even I thought they would at least be helpful. He then changed his mind completely and became a radical masker!”
