Governors Call Trump’s Testing Claims Delusional And Absolutely False
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Sunday said it was “delusional” for President Donald Trump to claim the U.S. currently has the testing capacity needed for states to relax social distancing measures amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Multiple governors of both parties have criticized the country’s testing capacity in recent days, as Trump and some in his administration have pushed to “reopen” parts of the country by May 1.
On Saturday, echoing comments Vice President Mike Pence made a day prior, Trump claimed “experts” had said that “America’s testing capability and capacity is fully sufficient to begin opening up the country totally.”
