Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said that he has “no intention” of stepping down should Joe Biden be inaugurated as president.
Fauci told the CNN broadcaster late on Monday that he has served in his position under six different presidents since 1984 and that he was not looking to leave his post.
“I have no intention of leaving. This is an important job … and my goal is to serve the American public, no matter what the administration is,” Fauci remarked.
The top US infectious disease expert has clashed multiple times with President Donald Trump throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to date.
