'Political game'? Governors push back on Trump virus charge
April 19, 2020
WASHINGTON (AP) — A chorus of governors from both parties pushed back hard Monday after President Donald Trump accused Democrats of playing "a very dangerous political game" by insisting there is a shortage of tests for coronavirus. The governors countered that the White House must do more to help states do the testing that's needed before they can ease up on stay-at-home orders.
Kansas's Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly said the current federal effort "really is not good enough if we're going to be able to start to open our economy. We cannot do that safely without the tests in place."
