Dr. Anthony Fauci raked in $417,608 in compensation from the federal government in 2019, putting the nation’s infectious disease expert at the top of the income chart above the rest of its 4 million federal employees, Forbes Magazine reported Monday.

At an income more than the president’s $400,000 annual salary, Fauci will collect $2.5 million serving as the director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the president from 2019 to 2024 if he maintains his role throughout the Biden administration absent a raise. Fauci’s pay, Forbes reported, rose from $335,000 in 2014 to its current level, and he’s brought in $3.6 million over the last 10 years. All data was collected by OpenTheBooks.com through requests under the Freedom of Information Act, according to the paper.

From the early onset of the coronavirus pandemic, Fauci’s public profile grew as the face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, where he became a fierce advocate of the lockdowns that forced millions out of work while seeing no cuts to his own compensation, nearly double that of the vice president’s $235,100 salary. Vice President Mike Pence chaired the coronavirus task force on which Fauci served with Dr. Deborah Birx, who earned more than $100,000 less than her NIH counterpart with a salary of $305,972.
