In a shocking confession during his career in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday evening, President Donald Trump said he had told officials to slow the testing of coronaviruses due to the high number of cases in America.

“You know the test is a double-edged sword,” Trump said, while complaining about media coverage of his treatment of the virus.

He said: “This is the bad part.” “When you take the test this far, you will find more people, and you will find more cases. So I said to my people, slow down the test, please.”

Nearly 120,000 people have been killed in the United States due to the Corona virus, and medical experts have said the test is important to identify and track cases and stop the spread of the virus.

After Trump made the comment on the test, a administration official told CNN that the president was “joking clearly” when he said he requested the slowdown.

Elemental term: On another point during the rally, Trump said Covid-19 has more names than any other disease.

“I can name it Kung Flu,” he said, using the racial term. “I can name 19 different versions of it.”

Trump had previously referred to Covid-19 as the “China Virus”.

When he pressed why he used this term in March, he said: “Because it comes from China. It’s not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. I want to be precise.”
