’Nobody likes me’: Trump on Fauci’s high approval ratings

President Trump on Tuesday questioned why Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious diseases expert, has a higher approval rating with the public than he does on his handling of the pandemic, and joked that, perhaps, nobody likes him. Trump said Fauci and Birx work for his administration ’and yet they’re highly thought of, but nobody likes me. It can only be my personality.’

Why this sudden attack on Fauci over the last month? Couldn't this wait till after the pandemic blows over? Clearly the eagerness to find a scapegoat has driven Trump being caught between a rock and a hard place Just listened to his briefing yesterday. Earlier in the day he retweets "Fauci misled the American public". In the briefing he says "He's in the task force. He's discussing stuff with me. I've listened to his suggestions. He's liked and rightfully so. But why am I not liked". This just sounds too messy to me. It's like a Jekyll and Hide which seems to have gone completely out of control. Clearly the general public hasn't taken his line as regards Fauci, as compared to some of the past attacks from Trump on others
