COVID-19 | ‘How many deaths are acceptable to me?’: Watch Trump’s reply to reporter

US President Donald Trump defended his administration's efforts to enable nationwide COVID-19 testing.

The administration has been criticized for the difficulties people have been facing during testing.

During a White House briefing, the president disagreed with a reporter who asked if it made sense to test everyone in America, so people who aren't infected could return to work more quickly.

When asked how many deaths are acceptable, Trump replied, “How many?

None.

Okay?

How many deaths are acceptable to me?

None, OK, none, if that's your question.” Watch the full video for more details.
