During an Oval Office meeting on May 7th with Iowa Governor Kimberly
Reynolds, Trump said the following: “The media likes to say we have the
most cases, but we do by far the most testing. If we did very little testing,
we wouldn’t have the most cases. So, in a way, by doing all of this testing,
we make ourselves look bad.”
This statement flies in the face of logic, according to Worldometer’s
testing data, the U.S. still has not cracked the top 40 countries and
territories in terms of testing per capita.
