CBS News obtained audio of a call Monday between President Trump and rural state governors about coronavirus where Trump says, “I haven’t heard about testing in weeks. We’ve tested more now than any nation in the world. We’ve got these great tests, and we’ll come out with another one tomorrow, that’s almost instantaneous testing. But I haven’t heard about testing being a problem.”
That quote was in response to a question from Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) who said the availability of testing kits remained a problem.
Also on the same day, Govs. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (D) and Larry Hogan of Maryland (R) published an op-ed in the Washington Post asking the federal government for more “test kits, medical supplies and other lifesaving equipment to meet the scope of this pandemic.”Save to Favorites
