Former President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., encouraged his Twitter followers Monday to “demand an end” to White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci’s “dog experiments” by signing a petition from the White Coat Waste Project.
“White Coat Waste Project was the first to expose Fauci’s #BeagleGate scandal and is running the official campaign in Washington DC to expose and end Fauci’s horrific beagle experiments and hold him accountable,” Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.
“Demand an end to this now here!!!” he added, linking the White Coat Waste Project petition.
The White Coat Waste Project, in a Freedom of Information Act investigation, has revealed that Fauci’s experiments on dogs are “nothing less than taxpayer-funded torture.”
The petition states that Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) funded “$424,000 on experiments where beagles were eaten alive by sandflies,” “$1.68 million to poison beagle puppies and cut out their vocal cords,” “$18 million to strap capsules of inflected flies onto their bare skin, without pain relief” and “$5.6 million to infect beagle puppies with “mutant” bacteria, and cover them in up to 250 ticks.”
In a statement concerning it’s #BeagleGate campaign, the group said, “We are proud that our blockbuster #BeagleGate investigation and campaign has united taxpayers across the country to oppose cruel and wasteful animal experiments funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.”
The group stated that as a “single-issue organization,” it does not “take any stand on Dr. Fauci and the NIH’s other policies or issues — masks, vaccine mandates, the overall COVID response, or frankly anything else. We’re only working to end his funding for these cruel experiments.”
The hashtag #ArrestFauci trended on Twitter on Oct. 24 after critics of Fauci condemned him for funding the cruel animal testing as well as lying to the public about gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.
The social media trend came after a bipartisan group of lawmakers in Congress sent a letter to Fauci demanding accountability for the NIAID spending millions of dollars in taxpayer money on animal testing that involved the cruelty and killing of beagles.
The National Institutes of Health also released a letter admitting it funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), an allegation Fauci had profoundly denied.
