Trump coronavirus briefing gets fact-checked on live TV


In a coronavirus taskforce press briefing, President Trump claimed the United States had the “best testing system” in the world. MSNBC’s Ari Melber interrupted the press briefing to fact check Trump’s claim, with Vaccine Scientist Dr. Peter Hotez. Dr. Hotez argues while the United States is “doing a lot of testing,” we also have “the largest number of reported cases of COVID-19 in the world” but adds, “it’s still not adequate enough to manage this epidemic.”
