The Many Lies and Fallacies of Trump and Testing

Donald Trump has consistently made a claim that the United States leads the world in testing. It is a claim that not only is not true, it’s also misleading in many ways.

We aren’t actually leading

We don’t have the most tests; China does. Per, China has 90,410,000 to our 37,602,471. Now in terms of whole numbers, we are second in the world, but that’s not as great as it sounds since there are only two countries in the world with more people than America.
