President Donald Trump said in a new interview that there’s such a thing as too much testing for coronavirus.
When asked where he got the absurd piece of information from, the president said to “read the manuals” and “read the books.”
“You know there are those that say you can test too much,” Trump told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan in an interview set to air on Monday evening. “You do know that?”
“Who says that?” Swan asked.
“Oh, just read the manuals,” the president replied. “Read the books.”
“Manuals?” Swan pressed. “What manuals.”
“Read the books, read the books,” Trump repeated.
