Trump and Fauci Team Up to Push Plasma Donations

( President Donald Trump and Dr. Anthony Fauci teamed up this week to promote the practice of coronavirus patients donating their blood plasma to help other people who are suffering from the condition. The media would have you believe that the president and Dr. Fauci are at one another’s throats, but this is yet another example of how they’re willing to work together to encourage as many people as possible to help combat the virus.

President Donald Trump met with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, who are two of the most high-profile members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, at the American Red Cross headquarters. It was the first time in weeks that Fauci and the President have met in person, and appeared alongside a banner that read “We’re In This Together.”

President Trump was seen wearing a mask while inside the building and witnessed a volunteer at the Red Cross donating their plasma. President Trump joked that the volunteer was “very famous now.”

President Trump sat down and spoke during a roundtable discussion with the doctors and talked about the importance of donating plasma, wearing a mask when in enclosed spaces, and avoiding crowded places. The message focused heavily around preventing the spread of the virus as states begin to relax lockdown rules, not just to save lives but to allow the economy to start functioning almost as normal again.

The CEO of the American Red Cross, Gail McGovern, also said that orders for blood plasma had doubled in the last month alone. McGovern encouraged Americans who have recovered from the coronavirus to donate their blood.

Fauci brought home the point that Americans are in this together and should think about what they can do to help others.

“An important part of the process of being in it together and pulling together is helping each other,” Fauci said.

If you’ve recovered from coronavirus…consider donating your blood plasma! It could just save a life.
