Responding to questioning by a House Democrat, Fauci says the scale of the US outbreak is the result of multiple factors, including some states opened too quickly, disregarding federal guidelines.
With public support for his response to the pandemic sinking, Trump has recently worked to discredit Fauci, insisting he's "made mistakes" throughout the crisis.
Fauci said he is "cautiously optimistic" that the coronavirus vaccine being developed by American biotechnology company Moderna and his agency will be successful.
In response to the video, Trump went on a familiar rant that "if we tested less, there would be less cases".
The Times reported that Trump was annoyed that Fauci had been asked by the Nationals to throw a pitch so chose to one-up him.
Fauci's comments about transmission risk in kids come as school reopening dates draw closer all across America and new research around the behaviour of the virus in children points to transmission rates at least similar to adults.
A new study, released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), analysed 597 children and staff who attended an overnight camp in Georgia between June 21 and June 27.
With hospitalizations and deaths on the rise in areas around the country, Fauci says Americans most again embrace public health basics such as social distancing and mask-wearing.

More than 4.5 million cases of the disease have been confirmed in the USA, according to Johns Hopkins University, or more than five times the total number of reported cases in Italy, France and Spain combined.
Other countries that shut down their economies knocked back uncontrolled spread and settled into a pattern of relatively few new cases, although they continued to experience local outbreaks.
"We had been in settlement on just about all of these", Fauci answered.
"You make all kinds of recommendations", Jordan said, taking aim at Fauci.
"Yes, sir, I was", Fauci answered.
Many health experts say that COVID-19 results are nearly worthless when delivered after two or three days because by then the window for contact tracing has closed.
Rapid, widespread testing is critical to containing the coronavirus outbreak, but the USA effort has been plagued by supply shortages and backlogs since the earliest days of the outbreak.
On hydroxychloroquine - a drug Trump touted early on in the pandemic despite firm data that it was effective in treating patients - Fauci said the "overwhelming" evidence is that the drug doesn't work. "Because claims of having a vaccine, ready to distribute before you do testing, I think, is problematic, at best". "I'm telling you what it is the danger".
