In a shocking admission during his Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally on the night of Saturday, the President, Donald Trump declared that he had said that officials of slow coronavirus test due to the increase in the number of cases in America.
“You know, the test is a double-edged sword,” Trump said, while complaining about the media coverage of his management of the virus.
“Here’s the bad part,” he said. “When you do tests of this measure, you’re going to find more people, you’re going to find more cases. So I said to my people, to slow the test down please. “
Almost 120,000 people have died in the united States for the coronavirus and the medical experts have said that the screening test is essential to the identification of cases, to follow them and stop the spread of the virus.
After Trump made the comment on the test, an administration official told CNN that the president was “obviously a joke” when he said that he has asked for a slowdown.
A racist term: At another time during the rally, Trump said Covid-19 had more names than any other disease.
“I can name Kung Flu,” he said, using the term racist. “I can name 19 different versions of their own. “
Trump has been previously referred to as Covid-19 as the ” virus in China. “
When pressed on why he used this term back in March, he said: “because it comes from China. It is not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. I want to be accurate. “
