Trump seems to have decided to stray even farther from message on COVID-19 and concentrate on all the diversions and distractions.

Without sarcasm, Trump’s disinforming claims of the total number of tests have little to do with the number of per capita tests needed. Trump says he disagrees with Fauci comments that U.S. needs more coronavirus testing. In January, Trump did not push for adequate testing. The U.S. should at least double coronavirus testing...
