President Trump attacked his own administration’s infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, on Saturday. In response to an excerpt from Fauci’s recent testimony to Congress, in which he explained why Europe has done a better job of containing the coronavirus than the United States, Trump tweeted: “Wrong! “”We have more cases because we have tested a lot more than any other country, 60,000,000,” the president continued, pushing the false claim that cases in the United States are only increasing because the country in test more. “If we tested less, there would be fewer cases. How did Italy, France and Spain do? Today, Europe unfortunately has outbreaks. Most of our governors have worked hard and smart. We will be back STRONG! ”

Asked directly about Trump’s assertion about testing during Friday’s hearing, Fauci said, “If you do more testing, you will see more cases. But the increases we are seeing are real increases in cases, as also evidenced by increases in hospitalizations and deaths. “
