The was-he-kidding debate continues, this time with input from President Trump himself as well as Dr. Anthony Fauci. The controversy stems from Trump's weekend rally in Tulsa and comments the president made during it about coronavirus testing. “When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people,” he said, per Politico. “You’re going to find more cases. So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please.'" (See the video here.) Afterward, White House officials including press chief Kayleigh McEnany and trade adviser Peter Navarro said Trump was kidding about asking his staff to slow testing. VP Mike Pence also downplayed the remarks. But on Tuesday, Trump appeared to contradict them when asked whether he was, in fact, kidding, reports the Hill.
