Trump Brags He Told White House To Slow Down Coronavirus Testing

The White House claimed that he was joking, but Trump said that he told the administration to slow down coronavirus testing.

Trump said, “And what we have done with the ventilators, the medical equipment, with testing. Testing is a double-edged sword. We have tested no 25 million people. It is probably 20 million people more than anybody else. Germany has done a lot, South Korea has done a lot. Here’s the bad part. When you do testing to that extent, you will find more cases. So I said to my people, slow the testing down, please. They test and they test. People don’t know what going on. The young man is 10 years old, he has the sniffles. He’ll recover in about 15 minutes. That’s a case.”
