Trump seemingly bragged about the number, saying it was “a tribute to our testing … we’re doing tremendous testing.”
REPORTER: “🇺🇸 now has the most cases.”
TRUMP: "I think it's a tribute to our testing." 🤔
From “we’re going to zero” to bragging about having the most cases. The con job continues! pic.twitter.com/yUo3wVHDI4

One month ago today, Trump said "when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done."
As of today, the US, with 81,782 confirmed cases, has more total cases than any country in the world.

USA now has most cases of COVID-19 in the world.
More than China.
More than Italy.
More than anyone.
And we're STILL wasting time each day listening to Trump brag he's doing a great job.
Folks, your only line of government protection is states. We have no federal government.

Trump fired our pandemic response team in 2018;
He ignored ominous warnings in Intel reports about a deadly pathogen in Jan;
He delayed testing betw Jan & March.
Now, according to Johns Hopkins University, we have more coronavirus cases than China, where the outbreak began. pic.twitter.com/qinptJLQaN

The U.S. now has the most coronavirus cases in the world, just under 82,000.
149 Americans have died so far today.
This could have easily been avoided if Trump hadn't tried to hide – and continues to try to hide – what is happening. Our curve is not flattened AT ALL! pic.twitter.com/72TF8AebRC

Due to the trumptastic failing of the trump admin to get in front of the #CoronavirusOubreak, we're number one in total coronavirus cases.
Yeah, I'm tired of all this winning disguised as losing.

Trump Yesterday: “I can see the light at the end of the tunnel…We’re gaining ground in the war against the virus.”
U.S. Today: Now has the most coronavirus cases in the world overtaking both China and Italy.
IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE THIS PANDEMIC DO NOT LISTEN TO THE PRESIDENT.
