White House adviser Peter Navarro claimed Donald Trump was being "tongue-in-cheek" when he claimed to have asked public health officials to slow down coronavirus testing.

Trump made the remark at a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday evening.

On Sunday, Navarro also told CNN's Jake Tapper he "did not hear me wrong" when he claimed without foundation that the "virus was a product of the Chinese Communist party".
