Meadows Backs Trump: 99% Of Cases Are “Harmless”

Axios reports:

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told “Fox & Friends” Monday that there are facts and statistics — without citing any — to back up President Trump’s claim that 99% of coronavirus cases are “totally harmless.”

The big picture: Nearly 130,000 Americans have died from the virus, and FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn declined to provide evidence to support Trump’s claim over the weekend.

While speaking at a Fourth of July celebration on Saturday, Trump said the U.S. has tested almost 40 million people and “by doing so, we show cases 99% of which are totally harmless,” per Politico.
