Trump says US topping world virus cases is 'badge of honour' - BBC News

President Donald Trump has argued it is "a badge of honour" that the US has the world's highest number of confirmed Covid-19 infections.

"I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing because it means our testing is much better," he said at the White House.

The US has 1.5 million coronavirus cases and nearly 92,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

In second place is Russia, with nearly 300,000 confirmed cases.

What did Trump say?
On Monday, Mr Trump was hosting his first cabinet meeting since the US outbreak began.

"By the way," he told reporters, "you know when you say that we lead in cases, that's because we have more testing than anybody else."

"So when we have a lot of cases," he continued, "I don't look at that as a bad thing, I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing because it means our testing is much better."

Actually, think about it sans emotion. He's correct. A higher number of tests and identification will allow this country better research of the spread factors. The U.S. appears to be leading, as usual, in the area of vaccine research.
This will pass.
And it will return.
nature's way.

Are you unable to find any new bad things about Trump and the virus? This article is from May.

This is pretty desperate and pathetic.
