In the initial stages of the Coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump downplayed the threat that the virus posed to human life. He made comments suggesting that the United States would move past it quickly.
However, more recently, Donald Trump and his administration have proven acknowledgement of the severity of the situation, with a heavy focus on testing.
“Our testing is so much bigger and more advanced than any other country (we have done a great job on this!) that it shows more cases. Without testing, or weak testing, we would be showing almost no cases. Testing is a double edged sword – Makes us look bad, but good to have!!!” Trump tweeted.
But then, the president of the United States has made other statements about reducing the Coronavirus case count in the United States.
He said “If we stop testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any,” during a white house press conference.
