US President Trump claims PM Modi praised him on Covid-19 testing

US President Donald Trump has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded him on coronavirus testing, as he took on his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, accusing him of being a complete disaster in handling the swine flu during the previous administration.

“By far, we’ve tested more people than India, than many, many big countries put together. India is second (in coronavirus testing after the US. We’re 44 million tests ahead of India. They have 1.5 billion people. And Prime Minister Modi calls me and says, what a job you’ve done with testing,” Trump said at an election rally in Reno, Nevada.

Trump is currently making a swing of some of the key states in the West Coast and has been spending a considerable amount of time in Nevada.

Trump said PM Modi’s comment on coronavirus testing done by the US under him needs to be explained to the media.

“I said, explain that to these dishonest people (media people back (at the election rally. Biden’s record demonstrates that if he had been in charge, when the China virus arrived, hundreds of thousands of more Americans would have died. As vice president, he presided over the worst and the weakest and the slowest economic recovery, since the great depression,” Trump said.

“No state was hit harder by Biden’s failure than Nevada. This is not the guy you want,” he said, adding that that it was the most pathetic recovery, since the depression.

He also said that in the last four years, he brought jobs back to America, secured borders, rebuilt the military and stood up to China, like never before.

“Nobody had ever stood up to China like we have stood up to China and you haven’t seen the last of it,” he said.

He also claimed that if Biden wins, he would be controlled by the left radicals. “Now he wants to surrender our country to the violent left-wing mob. If Biden wins, China wins. If Biden wins, the mob wins,” Trump said. “If Biden wins the rioters win, the anarchists win, the flag burners, the anarchists…they all win,” he alleged.

Alleging that this is a rigged election, Trump said that this is the only way he could be defeated. “But I’ll tell you what, he (Biden is the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics. He doesn’t know he’s alive. He doesn’t know he’s alive,” he said.
