Republican governors Larry Hogan (MD) and Mike DeWine (OH) contradicted President Donald Trump’s claim that there are no more coronavirus testing problems throughout America.

In a Monday conference call between Trump and rural state governors, Trump claimed that, “I haven’t heard anything about testing being a problem,” bragging, “We’ve tested more now than any nation in the world. We’ve got these great tests and we’ll come out with another one tomorrow that’s, you know, almost instantaneous.”

When Hogan spoke to NPR’s Morning Edition Tuesday to discuss his state’s coronavirus response, he was asked for his reaction to Trump’s claim that testing problems have all been fixed.

“Yeah, that’s just not true,” Hogan said. “I know that they’ve taken some steps to create new tests, but they’re not actually produced and distributed out to the states. So it’s an aspirational thing and they have taken they’ve got some new things in the works, but they’re not actually out on the streets.”
