On Monday, President Donald Trump appeared to suggest to reporters that the United States would cease to have cases of COVID-19 if testing stopped.
Trump’s suggestion drew immediate mockery from commenters on social media.

The president of the United States has not reached the developmental stage of understanding object permanence. Most humans begin understanding this by about 8 months. #TrumpIsNotWell https://t.co/dFVcP7YtPL

Right? If they would have quit testing you, your grades would have quit being bad. #TrumpLogic

If a person gets COVID in a forest and no one is around to test her, does she really have COVID?

We could also completely stop cancer if we quit testing for that. Hell, stop all testing of everything and we'll all be perfectly healthy until we drop dead.
