Lt. Gen. Russel Honore' (retired) on Tuesday blasted President Donald Trump for his claim that testing for the coronavirus has "created" new cases.

"Jesus Christ, will someone maybe @seanhannity explain to #45 stop say ignorant shit like more testing creating more #COVID19 cases," Honore' wrote on Twitter. "[T]his is F ing embarrassing for man with the nuclear code saying stupid shit like this. Sad thing we have few #Governors believe the same shit."

"We test more than anybody by far," Trump said. "And when you test, you create cases. So, we've created cases."
