Dr. Fauci on Wednesday admitted that Biden is putting up a fight over the travel mask mandate in order to preserve power.

Biden’s Justice Department on Tuesday asked a federal appeals court to overturn a federal judge’s order that declared the travel mandate unlawful.

A Trump-appointed federal judge last month struck down Biden’s airplane mask mandate.

Fauci told Fox News host Neil Cavuto that it’s all about maintaining power.

“One of the issues, Neil, that I have articulated in the past and I will in the future – it’s less about mandates on the plane than it is about who has the right and the authority and the capability of making public health decisions,” Fauci said. “And I believe that the Department of Justice is operating on the principle that decisions that are public health decisions belong with the public health agency, in this case, the CDC.”

“So it’s more of a matter of principle of where the authority lies than it is about whether or not there’s gonna be a mandate on a plane or not,” Fauci added.

Last month then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted forced masking on planes had nothing to do with science or keeping people from getting infected with Covid.

The Biden Regime knows masks don’t work and Psaki admitted it’s all about power.

“The Department of Justice has indicated that they would appeal, not just because they think it’s entirely reasonable…but because they think for current and future public health crises, uh, we want to preserve that authority for the CDC to have in the future,” Psaki said on April 20.

“Our focus here was seeing what power we had to preserve,” Psaki said.
