It was the sort of eccentric, science-deficient performance that many of his aides believe unnerved the public during the spring and has come to gravely threaten his re-election prospects.”
“Noting that Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx have high approval ratings even as his own have sagged, Mr. Trump added, ”And yet, they’re highly thought of — but nobody likes me. It can only be my personality.'”Save to Favorites
