    US President Donald Trump seems not to be a fan of COVID-19 testing, apparently believing if you do not test for the virus, it ceases to exist.

    The Most-Invisible Enemy
    It seems that, similar to a child or an ostrich, the POTUS believes if you cannot see them, problems will simply go away. 

    In his remarks during a Monday White House Cabinet press briefing, he made the astonishing claim that less COVID-19 testing means fewer novel coronavirus cases, "if any" at all. 

    “If we stop testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any,” Trump said, according to White House reporters present at the meeting.

    As of Monday, the novel coronavirus had killed over 116,000 people in the United States, and more than 2.1 million COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in the country, according to Johns Hopkins University.  

    Earlier that day, Trump tweeted that “testing is a double-edged sword” that makes the country “look bad” but is “good to have.” 

    The Donald must actually be actually innocent at heart, as that is truly the logic of a child.

      In recent weeks, US President Donald Trump has been so focused on his domestic agenda of preserving statues and monuments that his campaign has apparently extended the policy to foreign nations, vowing to protect Brazil’s most iconic statue from “left-wing mobs.” Huh?
