KEY POINTS

  • Fauci said he was not surprised that Trump contracted the novel coronavirus following the Rose Garden event
  • The superspreader event was attended by more than 150 people with little mask-wearing or social distancing
  • More than a dozen attendees, including White House aides, tested positive for the virus

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said he was not surprised President Donald Trump was infected with the novel coronavirus after he held the “superspreader” Rose Garden Event.

Fauci appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday, when he revealed that the images and footage taken of the event alarmed him.

“I was worried that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people, and almost nobody wearing a mask,” Fauci said.

“When I saw that on TV, I said, ‘Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come outta that, that’s gotta be a problem.’ And then sure enough, it turned out to be a superspreader event,” he added.
