    Total tests is not dependent on per capita. It’s a straight forward number. 1,2,34. Can’t you idiots count? The Obama administration left behind an antiquated system that didn’t work. Dr Fauci said so himself, that testing was inadequate to start and that we had to develop better testing which we did and we tested more than anyone else. Period. Per capita isn’t the issue. If you conduct 500 tests and your total population is only 1200 you have a great per capita yet you’ve only tested 500 people. 501 tests is more tests people.

    I would hate for this Dr to do surgery on any Republican. He’s getting paid by Democrats and probably the Biden campaign. WHAT DO YOU THINK HES GONNA SAY?

    Dr Taison Bell... You are an educated man being duped! Stick to medicine not politics. Biden and the Dems called Trump’s decision to close travel from China (something AL experts agree saved lives) a bad idea. Remember Pelosi dancing and telling folks to “Come to Chinatown..There’s nothing to worry about..”? People have such a short memory! Does anyone recall the weakest economic recovery in American history under Obama Biden? The plane load of money sent to Iran the biggest sponsor of terror in the world? The lame and useless campaign? Otto’s sentence to a torturous death? The export of American jobs to China? The shuttering of all the factories? The beginning of a campaign to target those of faith...unless that faith was Muslim ? More households fall to below poverty status? All under Obama/Biden. Fast forward to the economic recovery under Trump’s leadership, a roll back of all the regulatory red tape strangling American workers, an economy where my husband, our sons, our nieces have multiple job offers, Otto comes home to Rest In Peace, our troops aren’t fighting pointless wars, Kayla Mueller’s family has an end to their terror, lowest unemployment for women, black Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans, highest home ownership for black Americans in history, most Americans ever to leave the sick cycle of welfare dependency. I may not like a lot about Trump’s personality, but guess what? It’s not a popularity contest. It’s about results and I have no desire to go back to the era of an articulate bullshitter who did absolutely nothing for Americans but preach at us, and enrich himself and hurt my family and my country. Wake up America 🇺🇸

    His statement of asymptomatic might not be tested positive might be misleading. We found 85% of infected youth has no symptoms, meaning they can be detected if tested

    Trump REPEATEDLY blames Obama for "broken tests" for a virus that didn't even exist yet. Yeah. That's how dumb your President is. COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE US. March 01 6 April 01 6,394 May 10 79,429 I'm not seeing the GREAT JOB Trump keeps bragging about.

    You don’t need to test everyone in this country, that would be an impossible task to begin with. Our President is doing a good job for what he has to work with. So sick of the negativity that surrounds this man, just because you Democrat’s lost the election. Who do you think brought this virus here in the first place, I could think of a few names, NP, HC, CS,.👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻😡
