Raw Story reports:
While talking with reporters, Trump again asserted that former President Barack Obama was to blame for the United States’ infamously late scramble to produce quality COVID-19 tests. “The last administration left us with nothing!” Trump ranted. “We started off with bad, broken tests and obsolete tests!”
CNN’s Jim Acosta, however, asked Trump how Obama could have possibly been expected to deliver a test for a disease that had never been seen in humans until nearly three years after he left office.
“It’s a new virus, so how could the tests be broken?” he asked. “Jim, we had broken tests!” Trump insisted. “We had tests that were obsolete, we had tests that didn’t take care of people!”
.@Acosta: You say you had “broken tests” from Obama — the coronavirus is a new virus, so how could the tests be broken?
TRUMP: “We have broken tests. We had tests that were obsolete. We had tests that didn’t take care of people.” (None of this makes sense.) pic.twitter.com/r7oobJNFU2
