President Trump blasts criticism of coronavirus testing as partisan attack, When All 50 States Plan to Open, and Other Coronavirus Updates

President Trump on Monday blasted criticism of the nation’s coronavirus testing as a political smear.
During a White House briefing, the president was asked why he views the issue as a “political attack,” despite governors on both sides of the aisle and health experts emphasizing the importance of testing.
“It’s not bipartisan. It’s mostly partisan,” Trump responded.
“We are dealing in politics. We are dealing in the thing called November third of this year… It’s called the presidential election,” he continued.
“No matter what I do, where we go, if I came up with a tablet and this thing was gone, they would say ‘Trump did a terrible job.’ That’s the political soundbite.”
But Trump then discussed criticism from Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, who said he was forced to get the crucial materials from South Korea due to a shortage.
“He didn’t really know [about federal laboratory testing capacity],” Trump said.
