US President Donald Trump questions why he's not as popular as his coronavirus task force experts.
DONALD TRUMP: He's got a very good approval rating, and I like that. It's good because, remember, he's working for this administration. He's working with us, John.
We could have gotten other people. We could have gotten somebody else. It didn't have to be Dr. Fauci. He's working with our administration, and for the most part, we've done pretty much what he and others-- Dr. Birx and others, who are terrific, recommended.
And he's got this high approval rating, so why don't I have a high approval rating with respect-- and the administration with respect to the virus? We should have a very high because what we've done in terms of-- we're just reading off about the masks and the gowns and the ventilators and numbers that nobody's seen and the testing. At 55 million tests, we tested more than anybody in the world. I have a graph that I'd love to show you. Perhaps you've seen it where we're up here and the rest of the world is down at a level that's just a tiny fraction of what we've done in terms of testing.
So it sort of is curious. A man works for us, with us very closely, Dr. Fauci-- and Dr. Birx, also highly thought of. And yet they're highly thought of, but nobody likes me. It can only be my personality. That's all.
