Trump Doesn’t Want People Taking COVID-19 Test Because It Will Increase The Numbers: ‘Totally Unnecessary’

Donald Trump showed on Friday that he cares more about the appearance of the extent of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. rather than helping people who have actually been infected by the virus.

Trump finally caved in on Friday and declared a national emergency, something he had told reporters he did not want to do.

Trump spoke at the White House Rose Garden on Friday and claimed that he doesn’t plan on testing everyone in the country because it will raise the number of cases.

“Our overriding goal is to stop the spread of the virus and to help all Americans who have been impacted by this,” Trump told Americans from the Rose Garden podium Friday afternoon.

“Again, we don’t want everybody taking this test,” the President, focused on re-election, urged. “It’s totally unnecessary. This will pass through and we’re going to be even stronger for it.”

“Frankly, the numbers, because of the steps that have been taken, are at a level that a lot of people are surprised, especially when you compare them with other places, with far smaller populations,” Trump also stated.
