Trump praises Jim Jordan and Anthony Fauci after they clashed during coronavirus hearing

Trump ally Rep. Jim Jordan clashed with Dr. Anthony Fauci Friday, when the Ohio Republican asked if protests should be limited over COVID-19 concerns.

“Great job by Jim Jordan, and also some very good statements by Tony Fauci. Big progress being made!” Trump tweeted aboard Air Force One as he traveled to Tampa, Florida, for talks on the coronavirus response and hurricane preparedness.

Trump later retweeted a post from Jordan protesting the fact that people are discouraged to go church, work and school – issues on which he badgered Fauci during the hearing before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

Fauci, often the subject of criticism from Trump and other Republicans, said people should avoid crowds – and children be kept away from them – in order to prevent the spread of the virus that has killed more than 150,000 Americans.
