Trump: We Have Many More Cases Because We Test the Most

‘When you say that we leading cases, that is because we have more testing than anybody else’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “You know, when you say that we lead in cases, that's because we have more testing than anybody else. So we test much more than anybody else. Again, we're close to 14 million. It was said 12, 12.5, it’s actually, I think close to 14 million now. And so we have 14 million tests. And Germany, if they do 2 million, that’s a lot. And others are doing 1 million. So if you are testing 14 million people, you’re going to find many more cases. Many of these people aren’t very sick, but they still go down as a case. So actually, the number of cases — we are also a much bigger country than most. When we have a lot of cases, I don't look at that as a bad thing. I look at that as — in a certain respect as being a good thing, because it means our testing is much better.”
