"Here's the bad part: When you do testing to that extent, you're gonna find more people, you're gonna find more cases. So I said to my people, 'slow the testing down please!'" -- Trump pic.twitter.com/m5MOV9je70— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) June 21, 2020
Here Reuters covered it.
A White House official said Trump was joking about his call for a slowdown in testing.He didn't sound like he was kidding. But then I haven't listened to as many Trump lies as a White House official.
"He was obviously kidding. We are leading the world in testing and have conducted 25 million + in testing," the official said.
