What Trump Said
Commenting on the COVID-19 tests in the US, Trump said: “We will be well over 20 million tests. Remember this, when you test more, you have more cases.
“I say to my people every time we test; you find cases because we do more testing. If we have more cases, if we wanted to do testing in China or in India or other places, I promise you there would be more cases… you are doing a fantastic job in getting out the swabs”.
Puritan is one of the only manufacturers in the world producing the high-quality medical swabs that are crucial for rapid testing.
“And every swab you make at Puritan is proudly stamped with the beautiful phrase made in the USA.”
