The coronavirus tests let loose by the Donald Trump administration have been described by his own Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as “crap.” The COVID-19 antibiotic tests have false negatives of up to 15 percent. Worse, over half of the virus tests have false positives. What the country needs is virus testing in every state, every day, with every person displaying COVD-19-like symptoms. Instead, POTUS has something else on his mind.
Instead of offering informed aspirations, the president has been offering his salesman rigmarole and has been stuck on the media — again. He tweeted that The POLITICO news site made a correction.
Then, POTUS went after The New York Times and The Washington Post. He claimed they never offered a correction, but he could not be more wrong. He tweeted:
‘At least they admit it. The Failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost never correct their Fake Reporting! Quote Tweet’
‘Politico posted a lengthy editor’s note explaining errors in a story published last week saying Trump owes millions to the bank of China. EIC Matt Kaminski also sent this note to staff today acknowledging “we got the premise of our original story wrong”‘
