Dr. Fauci claims credit for COVID vaccines calling it the best decision he's ever made  

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, has appeared to claim credit for the decision to quickly develop vaccines against COVID-19, in remarks that are sure to anger Donald Trump.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made the comment in an interview with CNN for a special on Sunday, diving into the details of America's pandemic response.

'When I saw what happened in New York City, almost over-running of our healthcare systems, and that's when it became very clear that the decision we made on January 10 to go all out and develop a vaccine, may have been the best decision that I've ever made with regard to intervention as the director of the institute,' Fauci said.

Trump, who has frequently expressed frustration with Fauci publicly, has repeatedly touted his administration's Operation Warp Speed for delivering a vaccine to the public in record time.

Developing story, more to follow.
