Trump: “I Don’t Kid” About Slowing Down COVID Tests

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump said “I don’t kid” when referring to slowing down Covid-19 testing after White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spent all Monday defending him for making the comment “in jest.”

“I don’t kid, let me make it clear,” Trump said to reporters Tuesday. “We have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world. We test better than anybody in the world. Our tests are the best in the world, and we have the most of them. By having more tests, we find more cases. We did 25 million tests.”

“Here’s what I say: testing is a double-edged sword,” Trump said. “In one way, it tells you, you have cases. In other way, you find out where the cases are and you do a good job. We are doing a great job. We have never been credited for it. We’re doing the best testing job anywhere in the world.”
