Dr. Anthony Fauci spent weeks trying to undermine Donald Trump’s plan to reopen the American economy.

But now the rubber met the road.

And Dr. Fauci admitted this fact under oath that put Trump’s jaw on the ground.

Dr. Fauci, as well as other Trump administration health experts, testified before a House committee.

Democrats could not wait to get Dr. Fauci under oath after Donald Trump said at a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he supposedly ordered his “people” to test fewer Americans for coronavirus because more testing yielded more cases.

“Testing is a double-edged sword,” Trump said at the rally. “When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people, you’re going to find more cases, so I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please.'”

Both Democrat and Republican members of Congress questioned Dr. Fauci about the President’s statements.

Dr. Fauci rejected the idea the Democrats pushed that Donald Trump actually ordered his health professionals to scale down testing in order to record fewer cases.

“It’s the opposite,” Fauci stated. “We’re going to be doing more testing, not less.”

“None of us have ever been told to slow down on testing — that just is a fact. In fact, we will be doing more testing,” Dr. Fauci added.

Now that the protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death devolved into a Marxist cultural revolution that could damage the Democrats’ political prospects, the fake news media shifted the focus of coverage back to the coronavirus.

The fake news media wants to pound the American people with the narrative that President Trump “bungled” the coronavirus response and that the epidemic is raging uncontrollably across the country.

That is not true.

The COVID Tracking Project listed 32,650 new cases of coronavirus on Tuesday.

17,285 of those positive test results came from just four states – Arizona, California, Florida and Texas.

In comparison, the other 46 states and the District of Columbia reported just 15,275 cases.

The simple fact of the matter is the United States is a big country with 340 million people.

It’s impossible to compare the trajectory of the virus in the United States to any other individual country.

The size of the country meant the virus would hit different areas at different times.

Just because New York and New Jersey got hit hard in March did not mean the rest of the country would see a rise in cases at the exact same time.

What is now important for states is not to panic and impose economy-crippling lockdowns and instead learn the lessons of the original outbreak where the predicted collapse of the healthcare system never took place.
