Remember when Donald Trump told the world that the United States wouldn’t be leading the world in COVID-19 cases if it wasn’t for the amount of testing being done? Well, he brought back that same claim on Monday while speaking at a roundtable on “Fighting for America’s Seniors.”

Trump claimed, “If we stop testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any.”

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted that testing made the United States “look bad.”

“Our testing is so much bigger and more advanced than any other country (we have done a great job on this!) that it shows more cases. Without testing, or weak testing, we would be showing almost no cases. Testing is a double edged sword – Makes us look bad, but good to have!!!” he said.

The United States leads all countries in COVID-19 cases by far with over 2 million cases. The country in second place is Brazil with over 850,000, according to Worldometers.
