President Donald Trump is still blaming his predecessor, Barack Obama , for his own administration’ s fumbled response to the coronavirus pandemic .

President Trump on Monday again sought to redirect blame over his response to the coronavirus pandemic to the Obama administration.

Trump, who has repeatedly claimed that increased testing has led to a spike in U.S. COVID-19 cases, was asked by a reporter at the White House whether he was concerned about a resurgence of the virus that has killed more than 135,000 Americans and infected more than 3.3 million.

“We have one of the lowest mortality rates anywhere,” the president said before pivoting to an attack on Barack Obama and Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee.

President Donald Trump started the week in the fight against the coronavirus by amplifying the fact-free claim of right-wing personality Chuck Woolery that “the most outrageous lies are about Trump again directs blame at Obama as coronavirus pandemic worsens in U . S . Yahoo News.

It’ s a commonly accepted truth that the only way the coronavirus pandemic will come to an end is through the development of an effective vaccine. Trump again directs blame at Obama as coronavirus pandemic worsens in U . S .

“Biden and Obama stopped their testing,” Trump said. “They just stopped it. You probably know that. I’m sure you don’t want to report it. But they stopped testing. Right in the middle, they just went, ’No more testing.’”

It’s not entirely clear what Obama-era testing program Trump was referring to. He has previously criticized Obama administration over its handling of the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak, which killed about 12,500 Americans. (On Monday, he acknowledged that the so-called swine flu was “a much lesser problem than the one we're having.”)

But it’s not the first time Trump has tried to place blame on Obama and Biden over his halting response to the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 — nearly three years after they left office.

“The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing,” Trump said. “And we undid that decision a few days ago so that the testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion.”

According to the Annenberg Public Policy Center’s FactCheck.org, no such rule or regulation was ever implemented under the previous administration.

“The Obama administration did attempt to impose a risk-based system of regulation on laboratory developed tests, or LDTs, and introduced draft guidance in 2014,” FactCheck.org said. “But that guidance was never finalized, and was withdrawn after Trump won the election in 2016.

“There is no formal document that Trump needed to rescind to allow labs to create their own coronavirus tests,” it added.
