President Donald Trump on Tuesday publicly criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci for his comments on the coronavirus pandemic, and said the U.S. is in a “good place” despite a surge in COVID-19 cases.

"Well, I think we are in a good place. I disagree with him," Trump told Gray Television's Greta Van Susteren during an interview at the White House.

"Dr. Fauci said don't wear masks and now he says wear them. And he said numerous things. Don't close off China. Don't ban China. I did it anyway. I didn't listen to my experts and I banned China. We would have been in much worse shape."

"We've done a good job," Trump added. "I think we are going to be in two, three, four weeks, by the time we next speak, I think we're going to be in very good shape."

Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House's coronavirus task force, earlier Tuesday warned against “false complacency” in the dropping death rate among coronavirus patients.

"It's a false narrative to take comfort in a lower rate of death," Fauci said during a live stream press conference with Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala.

"There's so many other things that are very dangerous and bad about this virus, don't get yourself into false complacency."

Nearly 3 million people have been infected with coronavirus, and more than 130,000 Americans have died.
