As has been proven world-wide, testing is the only way to assess and contain Covid-19.  Last week, Donald Trump revealed why he refuses to lead a nation-wide testing program like the ones in countries that have succeeded in containing the virus and great reduced the number of deaths.  “By doing all this testing, we make ourselves look bad.” (Meaning: lowers his risk of being reelected.)  “If hundreds of thousands or millions have to die to ensure my victory in November, well, I think that’s a small price to pay by the nation for having the benefits of my leadership for the next four years.”

The U.S. is doing less testing per capita than 25 other countries.  Trump said he did not like the fact that “A country with 5% of the world’s population has 1/3rd of the world’s known cases.  Trump looks at testing as if they were TV ratings.  Testing presents objective truths but Trump does not like objective truth.  He believes in perceptions.  “If we didn’t do any testing,” he complained, “we would have very few cases.”   “If test are going to find infected people, who do more of them?”
