Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Adviser to the POTUS, was the spearhead of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fauci crafted policies and plans with the Trump Administration and guided public policy on how to handle rapidly growing case numbers and staggering death tolls.
But even as those policies forced 200,000 American small businesses to close their doors forever, Fauci himself gained wealth.
A new report from Open the Books suggests that Fauci’s net worth nearly doubled during the pandemic, skyrocketing by $5M.
It’s a slap in the face to small business owners and individuals across the country who did as they were asked by their government to protect others and saw their livelihoods go up in metaphoric flames.
Fauci recently announced that he would step down from his role as Head of the National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Disease, and who could blame him with that kind of retirement to look forward to?
