Pelosi slams Trump's 'disappointing' testing plan

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer denounced on Monday President Donald Trump's coronavirus testing plan as "disappointing."

"After six months and nearly 100,000 lives lost, the Trump Administration still does not have a serious plan for increasing testing to stop the spread of the virus," the Democratic leaders wrote in a statement. "This disappointing report confirms that President Trump’s national testing strategy is to deny the truth that there aren’t enough tests and supplies, reject responsibility and dump the burden onto the states," they underscored.

The Trump administration's testing strategy largely left it up to states to decide their own testing policies.
