6:29 pm
24th are what they are today it would be very difficult for us to reopen schools. >> reporter: education secretary betsy devos under fire for doubling down on the president's threats to withhold funding from schools that don't open their
6:30 pm
doors without offering a plan for safely reopening. in washington, alice barr, nbc news. dr. fauci weighed in on the cases today focused on a fireside chat with stanford university and blamed the u.s. for not shutting down entirely. back in march and april. he said while infection rates did flatten they were still too high when the country moved to reopen. dr. fauci said this is the reason for the resurgence of cases now. here in california as well as in texas and florida and arizona. but he thinks there is a path forward without shutting back down. >> if we step back, you don't necessarily need to shut down again. but pull back a bit and then proceed in a very prudent way. >> dr. fauci also said that he believes that the country will have a vaccine by early 2021. that's next year. he says when it comes to the
6:31 pm
time to distribute the vaccine people who are considered high risk should be prioritized. we are joined by the nbc bay area political analyst to talk about this situation between dr. fauci and the president. larry, we have seen a public dismantling of this relationship that they had from when they were on the daily briefings, then we saw dr. disappear and now back on the air again. but now we see the president actually going after fauci with his administration. >> yeah. he is, jessica. the reason is why. i think two or three things we might want to consider as far as this goes. first of all, the president needs something to distract people from the real problem and many people believe the real problem is that the president has not taken control of this as presidents always do in a national crisis so he's looking for someone to blame. he tried china, tried the world health organization. now it looks like he is pointing
6:32 pm
his guns at dr. fauci. that's one possibility. the president doesn't like the fact that dr. fauci with his fingers on the facts is disagreeing with him. the president probably feels that makes him look bad and finally, you know, the president's a person who likes publicity, being the center of attention and dr. fauci with his measured responses, his responses based on science, based on research is offering all kinds of information that the president feels that really makes him look bad and for that reason, too, he doesn't like his popularity and the president's unpopularity and could be one, two or three of these things and the president now has his guns turned on dr. fauci. >> seems to me that the losers in this spat between the president and dr. fauci really are the american people because it's hard to discern when you have the president of the united states saying one thing and the chief, you know, medical person in the country also saying
6:33 pm
something completely different so it's very confusing for the american public and that creates a lot of division. >> you hit the nail on the head. you are absolutely right now. here you have the person with the largest mega phone in the world, the president of the tak on this as far as he is concerned is gone. no more issue to speak of. ember here and fire here. will be gone in a week or so. said that a week or so ago and then you have the pre-eminent researcher, dr. fauci, saying it is not going away. expect 100,000 cases per day in a matter of weeks. what is the public to do when they hear these two things? it is very difficult. what do i do? what do i take? is it a problem, not a problem? do i wear a mask, not wear a mask? president doesn't wear a mask. how should i? how important to go to school? what does it mean if they don't? all of the things tumbling down
6:34 pm
and instead of a focal point for an answer they hear the two competing points if you will radically different and the public is stuck. >> so dr. fauci said he's not in contact with the president maybe in a month in terms of briefing him so how are they going to fix the difference of opinion and how are we going do see how this is resolved? >> i'm not sure they fix it. i think it's deep seeded. the president is not going to budge and dr. fauci wants to tell the facts and he is not arguing with the president as much as delivering awhat will r
