Fauci: I was made part of campaign without permission

United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci stressed on Sunday that nobody from US President Donald Trump's team has asked him for permission before using his statements as a part of the campaign ahead of the presidential elections.

In an interview with NBC News, he said that this was done "without [his] permission," and added that his "comments were taken out of context."

"In my 5 decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed nor do I now endorse any political candidates," Fauci concluded.
