Over 30 million Americans have contracted coronavirus, with over 546,000 fatalities, but former President Donald Trump took to Fox News on Thursday to brag about refusing to follow the medical advice of Dr. Anthony, Fauci, the country's top infectious disease expert.

"If you saw him throw out the first pitch in Washington, right? He is a better pitcher than he is as what he does," Trump taunted.

"But if you really look, I didn't really listen to him too much, because I was doing the opposite of what he was saying," Trump admitted.
