President Trump says he has a very good relationship with White House Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci despite the White House attempting to discredit the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Dr. Fauci has been increasingly vocal about his concerns over reopening the country while there’s a surge of coronavirus cases in some states. Peter Staley, an AIDS activist and a member of the Covid-19 Working Group of New York, has worked with Dr. Fauci for decades and has been talking to him throughout the pandemic. He tells Anderson Cooper Dr. Fauci is “deeply frustrated” and just wants to fight the virus and save lives. Plus, the superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest school district in the country, announced they will start the school year online only, despite the President and his administration pushing for schools to reopen. Arne Duncan, former Education Secretary in the Obama Administration, joins Anderson Cooper and says superintendents ultimately have the power to make the decisions that are best for their schools, not the governors or the President.
