The tangled trail of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s views on the coronavirus took another twist this month as he took a position he denounced a year ago, when it was held by then-President Donald Trump. During an interview with Politifact, which was posted on Twitter, Fauci was asked whether he still held to his views that the coronavirus had a natural origin. “No, actually. … No, I’m not convinced about that,” Fauci said (about 13 minutes into the interview below). “I think that we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we find out to the best of our ability exactly what happened.” “Certainly, the people who’ve investigated it say it likely was the emergence from an animal reservoir that then infected individuals, but it could’ve been something else, and we need to find that out. So, you know, that’s the reason why I said I’m perfectly in favor of any investigation that looks into the origin of the virus,” he said. However, a year ago, when Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were saying that they believed the virus could have been man-made, Fauci ridiculed them, according to the Washington Examiner.
