President Donald Trump said the top U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci was blocked from testifying to the House of Representatives on the coronavirus this week because it’s controlled by Democrats, undercutting the White House’s explanation.

“The House is a setup, the House is a bunch of Trump haters, they put every Trump hater on the committee, same old stuff,” Trump said Tuesday in response to a question about why Fauci wasn’t allowed to testify.

A White House spokesman, Judd Deere, said in a statement last week that it would be “counter-productive” to allow top U.S. medical officials to testify to Congress while they’re working to combat the coronavirus outbreak.

“We are committed to working with Congress to offer testimony at the appropriate time,” Deere said.

Trump told reporters at the White House that Fauci will testify to the Senate. “He looks forward to doing that, but the House, I will tell you, the House, they should be ashamed of themselves,” the president said.
