Question: You have said many times that the US is doing better than any other country when it comes to testing, why does that matter why is this a global competition to you if everyday Americans are still losing their lives and we’re still seeing more cases every day?

Trump: Well they’re losing their lives everywhere in the world and maybe that’s a question you should ask China, don’t ask me ask China that question okay, when you ask them that question you might get a very unusual answer
