Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar declared the novel coronavirus a public health emergency in the United States, Washington D.C., Friday. From left are Department of Transportation, Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun, Joel Szabat, Acting Under Secretary for Policy, Azar, and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci.

If one thinks Dr. Anthony Fauci is in any sort of hot water, think again.  BetOnline.ag has released odds of the next member of the Donald Trump administration to be fired, and it like The Donald is rearing up the national razor for usage once again.

Alex Azar is off the board.   The former drug lobbyist has served as Trump’s Health & Human Services Sectary and seems to be a golden lock as someone who will not survive the Coronavirus pandemic.  Azar currently chairs the Coronavirus task force, noted for familiar faces and names such as Dr. Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, and others.

Bettors currently cannot place a wager on Trump to fire Azar.  That speaks volumes.

The current betting favorite is Defense Secretary Mark Esper (+200.)  Esper is a former defense contractor who came on in an interim basis last year before officially being named secretary of defense.  Trump already accepted Jim Mattis’ resignation and the post has seemingly remained fluid since.

Down the line are a few less-than-familiar names.  Jovita Carranza is next up at +300, who is the US’ Administrator of Small Businesses.  Followed by Robert Wilkie, the nation’s Secretary of Veteran Affairs (+400.)

Then a few of those who have been under fire from Trump’s left flank: Wilbur Ross (+400), Steve Mnuchin (+500), Betsy Devos (+800), and then a few long shots: David Bernhardt (+1000), Robert Lighthizer (+1000), and Eugene Scalia (+1200.)

Noted to not be on this list is the nation’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who has received endless praise from Trump during his tenure on Twitter.  Trump promoted the former Congressman from Director of the CIA to the nation’s top ambassador role and has since let Pompeo operate autonomously.

Also not included is Vice President Mike Pence and Coronavirus task force member, Secretary of HUD Dr. Ben Carson.
