Governors from both sides of the aisle on Sunday disputed President Donald Trump’s claims about the availability of coronavirus testing, escalating the erupting tension over the key challenge in reopening the nation.
On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, the Republican governor of Maryland and the Democratic governors of Virginia and Michigan disputed Trump’s assertions that their states have enough testing to move toward reopening their states.
Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam called the administration’s declarations that the states have ample testing capacity “just delusional.”
“We’ve been fighting every day for PPE. We have supplies now coming in. We’ve been fighting for testing,” Northam told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “It’s not a straightforward test. We don’t even have enough swabs.”
