The Lincoln Project’s latest anti-Trump ad focuses on frightening comments the president made about coronavirus testing. During his lightly attended campaign kick-off rally in Tulsa, the president told his followers that he had instructed his staff to, “Slow the testing down, please.”
The Lincoln Project zoomed in on Trump’s confession. “The most deceptive, lying president in history finally told the truth,” the ad opens. “Somehow it was more shocking than all his deceptions.” Footage plays of Trump explaining that if you do more testing, you find more cases, so he told “his people” to slow it down.
