CNN host Brianna Keilar played several clips of President Donald Trump opposing COVID-19 testing in May, which has resulted in over 122,000 dead Americans (2020 total) in June.
Keilar noted that Trump’s failure of “national leadership” and correctly stated that Trump wants to cut federal funding for COVID-19 testing (on June 30):
The president is deliberately negligent. He knowingly puts Americans at risk by holding indoor rallies and events, and by cutting funding for coronavirus testing, including in hot spots like Texas where cases are surging. He doesn’t like testing because it shows what’s really going on and he has been admitting that for months.
