In a shocking acceptance during Saturday night in Oklahoma Tulsa, President Donald Trump said he told the authorities to slow down the coronavirus test due to an increasing number of cases in America.
“You know the test is a double-edged sword,” Trump said.
“Here’s the bad part,” he said. “When you test to this extent, you will find more people, you will find more cases. So to my people, please slow down the test.”
About 120,000 people died from the coronavirus in the United States, and medical professionals said tests are critical to identify cases, monitor them, and stop the spread of the virus.
After Trump commented on the test, a management official told CNN that the president “clearly joked” when he said he wanted a slowdown.
A racist term: At another point during the rally, Trump said that Covid-19 had more names than other diseases.
“I can name the Kung Grip,” he said, using the racist term. “I can name 19 different versions.”
Trump previously called Covid-19 the “Chinese virus.”
When he pressed on why he used this term in March, he said, “Because it comes from China. Not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, so. I want to be true. ”
