The 30-second spot uses older remarks fromFauciin a way that suggests he was praising the president."I can't imagine that anybody could be doing more," the ad showsFaucisaying.But those remarks are from a March interview, whereFauci, who has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, was discussing the broader effort, including by the White House coronavirus task force."In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate,"Faucisaid in a statement."The comments attributed to me without my permission in the GOP campaign ad were taken out of context from a broad statement I made months ago about the efforts of federal public health officials," his statement added.Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh defended the ad in a statement on Sunday, saying the words fromFauci"are accurate, and directly from Dr.Faucis mouth."As Dr.Faucirecently testified in the Senate, President Trump took the virus seriously from the beginning, acted quickly, and saved lives, Murtaugh's statement added.Trump himself echoed that sentiment in a tweet on Sunday, saying: "They are indeed Dr.Fauci's own words.
