A transcript is as follows:
JOHN BERMAN: One of the new cases, obviously, is in Washington, DC, and that’s the President of the United States. What has been your involvement in handling this case and the president’s care?
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: I think it’s obvious that I have not been involved. I don’t want to get into talking about the president’s case, because that’s not something that I’ve really been cleared to talk about. But personally I have not been involved in the direct care of the president.
“My colleagues that I know, including Sean Conley, are very good physicians, and they’re very qualified, so I am really confident that the president of the United States is getting the optimal care that you can get with the team over at Walter Reed,” Fauci said.
