Rapid expansion of Covid 19 testing imperiled by Trump’s ego

Dear Editor:

I am hoping the federal government will rapidly expand Covid 19 testing by leaps and bounds. I have emailed my Senators asking if they can make this happen, but I worry it won’t happen due to a recent LA Times report.

In a conference call on Wednesday, business leaders told Trump that “expanded testing was necessary before Americans could safely return to work,” the Los Angeles Times reported, citing an anonymous person briefed on the call.

“But,” according to the Times, “the message was largely drowned out by Trump’s determination to solicit praise from the participants.”
