Maryland Gov. Secures Half a Million Coronavirus Tests from South Korea with the Help of His Wife

Hogan had referenced that list during his Monday press conference, telling a reporter, “they gave us a list of all the labs that our in our state and in each of the states.”

“We already knew where the labs were,” he said, adding that “most” of the labs on the list were federal labs.

Hogan responded to Trump’s comment on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday.

“If there was an easier way, we certainly would have taken it,” he said. “Every governor in America has been fighting to get tests since the beginning of this crisis, and it’s probably been the No. 1 problem in America throughout this entire crisis. The president said the governors are on their own and they should focus on getting their own tests, and that’s exactly what we did.”

Hogan said that Trump’s “message changed yesterday,” adding, “I’m not sure why.”
