Trump gave an expansive speech at an event for wealthy GOP donors at his resort in Mar-A-Lago on Saturday night, where he saw Dr. Fauci, who coordinated the White House's coronavirus response and who frequently drew the ire of President Trump in the office during his tenure.
"Have you ever seen someone that sucks?" Trump said of Fauci, according to the post, which quoted a participant in the event.
Trump also mocked Fauci's baseball skills, reported the Post and Politico, and jibe in the ceremonial first place he threw in a game between the Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees last year.
Trump has often derided Fauci for the wayward pitch, calling it "perhaps the worst first pitch in baseball history" in October last year!
Trump also used his speech to refer to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell as a "stupid son of a b --- h" according to Politico.
President Trump repeatedly came across the White House's response to coronavirus with Fauci, who is a member of the coronavirus task force and has been director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases since 1984.
Fauci had urged a practical federal response to the coronavirus, while Trump, who had often downplayed the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, preferred to leave decision-making to individual states.
In March, Trump said he had ignored Fauci's advice but decided not to be fired.
"I thought instead of firing him, you know, I listened to him, but I didn't do what he said because his record is honestly not a good record," Trump said on the podcast "The Truth with Lisa Boothe" .
Fauci, who is now President Joe Biden's chief medical officer, also criticized Trump, saying in October that he was "absolutely not" surprised that the president contracted coronavirus in September for not taking appropriate medical precautions.
"I was afraid that he would get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation where there were no people wearing a mask," Fauci told CBS's "60 Minutes".
