During his campaign kickoff rally in Tulsa, Okla., President Trump blamed spikes in coronavirus cases on increased testing in the county.
DONALD TRUMP: And what we've done with the ventilators and with the medical equipment and with testing. You know, testing is a double-edged sword. We've tested now 25 million people. It's probably 20 million people more than anybody else. Germany's done a lot. South Korea's done a lot. They call me, they say the job you're doing. Here's the bad part, when you test the, when you do testing to that extent, you're going to find more people, you're going to find more cases.
So I said to my people, slow the testing down please! They test and they test. We had tests, the people don't know what's going on. We got tests. We got another one over here. The young man's 10 years old. He's got the sniffles. He'll recover in about 15 minutes. That's a case. Add him too, that's a case.
