Trump Admits He Instructed His Team To ‘Slow The Testing Down’ To Find Fewer Coronavirus Cases





President Trump on Saturday admitted he instructed members of his administration to “slow the testing down” in an attempt to reduce the total number of reported COVID-19 infections in the United States.

“COVID. To be specific, COVID-19. That name gets further and further away from China, as opposed to calling it the Chinese virus,” Trump told the crowd. “We – I – did a phenomenal job with it.”



Trump said he told his administration, “slow the testing down, please” reiterating his false argument that higher test numbers led to higher case counts.

He then imitated a doctor talking about a 10-year-old with “sniffles” who would conclude “that’s a case!”




The president said the governor of New Jersey told him only one person under the age of 18 died, which the president said shows that young people have a “great immune system”

“Let’s open the schools please!” he demanded.
