(PresidentialWire.com)- Dr. Sanjay Gupta is a regular contributor to CNN. He’s also an anti-Trump obsessive who this week claimed that the Trump administration specifically attempted to reduce COVID-19 infection numbers by stopping mass testing. The data, however, shows that he is wrong.
Johns Hopkins University & Medicine has shown that the United States has “conducted more COVID-19 tests than any other country.” This fact alone means that it is factually inaccurate to suggest that the Trump administration has attempted to minimize the pandemic “by not testing,” as Dr. Gupta claimed.
“Look at the UK. We’ll discuss it later in the show with…from Harvard who is taking a look at it. How do they get these rapid tests?” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo asked. “How are they getting it done in 90 minutes? Is the UK so much better than us? Is there some science that’s proprietary? I mean, couldn’t we be buying up those kinds of tests right now, doc?”
Dr. Gupta said that the United States “should have been developing this ourselves.”
“And you talked about this early on , there was a strategic, I think, method to minimizing this by not testing,” Gupta then claimed. “Sad to say, but I think that’s the truth now, you sort of suggested that early on and I thought, maybe we’re just behind.”
Note that he uses the term “I think” twice. That means he isn’t asserting a verifiable fact, but instead making a claim that cannot be proven. It’s a way of covering himself in the event that he is proven wrong…which he already has been.
“But I think it was deliberate now at this point to not test, because it would make things look bad, we should have had significant breakthroughs in antigen testing by now,” he added.
You can see for yourself in the video below. It’s really crazy how Cuomo entertains this stuff, especially when there’s zero evidence to support the claims.

If you want to know the facts, you can check the data right here. It shows that the United States has pulled out all the stops to perform as many tests as possible.
