Trump Says HHS Secretary Azar Doing ‘Excellent Job,’ Has No Plans To Fire Him

President Donald Trump dismissed reports that Health and Person Provider Secretary Alex Azar might soon be changed on Sunday, stating he was doing “an excellent job” as the country continues to reel from the continuous coronavirus pandemic.

Reports that H.H.S. Secretary @AlexAzar is going to be “fired” by me are PhonyNews The Lamestream Media understands this, however they are desperate to develop the understanding of mayhem & & havoc in the minds of thepublic They never ever even contacted us to ask. Alex is doing an outstanding job!

” Reports that H.H.S. Secretary [Alex Azar] is going to be ‘fired’ by me are Phony News,” Trump composed onTwitter “The Lamestream Media knows this, but they are desperate to create the perception of chaos & havoc in the minds of the public.”

The president’s guarantees came simply a day after The Wall Street Journal first reported that authorities in the White House were weighing Azar’s removal over his efforts to take on the early days of the coronavirus break out in the United States. More than 965,000 people have actually now evaluated favorable for COVID-19 and the death toll topped 50,000 previously today.

Trump, supposedly growing frustrated and isolated as his administration is swallowed up in debate, has been grabbing anybody and anything to blame for the spread of the infection, casting a lens on the World Health Organization, the media, China and officials both outside and inside his own orbit.

However the president has been hesitant to shake up the medical leadership behind the country’s coronavirus action, the Journal reported this weekend. Trump has regularly pushed back against allegations he is irritated with Dr. Anthony Fauci or Dr. Deborah Birx, who are frequently required to damage the president’s claims that contravene medical advice.

Azar without delay retweeted Trump’s missive on Sunday, restating the claim reports of his impending termination were “fake news” while promoting the administration’s work to control the spread of the infection.

“While the #FakeNews media and their leaker allies collude to destroy this President, his Administration is following his leadership 24/7 to protect Americans and end a global health crisis,” Azar composed. “POTUS took bold, early, decisive action for which he was heavily criticized by the same media outlets that continue attacking today.”

Reports of President Trump seeking to change me are#FakeNews The media continues to smear @POTUS and his Administration’s battle versus #COVID19 and grossly ignore the historical whole-of-government action that we have actually been providing under the President’s management. https://t.co/xTqePeR3Cu

The White House has dealt with an attack of criticism throughout the pandemic over the availability of medical supplies, pleas that testing capacity be increased and the length of time it took for Trump himself to appear worried that cases of the infection had actually even made it to American coasts.

Trump has regularly replaced cabinet members and other administration authorities he’s grown dissatisfied with. Azar is the president’s second HHS secretary after Tom Rate was required to resign amidst analysis over his use of chartered flights.
