In other news, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) has become the first state governor to test positive for the coronavirus. Stitt attended Trump's recent rally in Tulsa.
Meanwhile, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine estimates that schools will need at least $20 billion from the government to implement proper safety measures for reopening.
“In the absence of substantial financial support from the federal government and state governments, it is likely that the communities most impacted by COVID-19 will see even worse health outcomes in the wake of reopening schools,” says the report. “Schools will not be able to take on the entire financial burden of implementing the mitigation strategies.”
It's not clear how much congressional Republicans will agree to spend.
Finally, Trump is still out there illustrating that he has no idea how literally anything works.
"Think of this, if we didn't do testing, instead of testing over 40 million people, if we did half the testing we would have half the cases," Trump said at a press conference at the White House. "If we did another, you cut that in half, we would have, yet again, half of that. But the headlines are always testing."
Trump said that while coronavirus testing "is a good thing," it has also served as "fodder for the fake news to report cases." He said that if the U.S. didn't test people for Covid-19, then you wouldn't have "all the headlines" because the nation has one of the lowest mortality rate.
