In a tweet on Saturday linking to a clip from Fauci’s congressional testimony the previous day, Donald Trump expressed his displeasure over remarks about the impact of shutting down an economy on preventing the spread of the pandemic virus.

“If you look at what happened in Europe when they shut down or locked down or went into shelter in place … they really did it to the tune of about 95+ percent of the country did that,” Fauci said.

In contrast, he noted that although America “shut down, even though we created a great deal of difficulty, we really functionally shut down only about 50 percent in the sense of the totality of the country.”

“Wrong!” Trump retorted.

He returned to the well-trodden claim that if “we tested less, there would be less cases,” pointed to supposed failures by the leaders of Italy, France, and Spain.

“Now Europe sadly has flare ups,” Trump concluded. “Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG.”
