Donald Trump sought to shift blame on to the Obama administration for a nationwide coronavirus test kit shortage.

The president on Wednesday blamed a federal agency decision during Barack Obama's presidency, which Trump said made it harder to quickly roll out testing for the virus.

"The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we're doing, and we undid that decision a few days ago so that the testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion," he told reporters during a White House meeting with airline executives, whom he had called to discuss the economic effects of the outbreak.
