Per capita the US does not lead the world in testing as Trump claims. We are ranked 41st

The US is 41st in testing per capita with only 29,000 tests per million people compared to Iceland which tests 160,000 per million https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

And Iceland isn't even number one. It's the Faeroe Islands. LOL with 175,000 tests per million. No, they don't have a million people but you get the idea.

4. If you subtract out the sub-350,000 population micro states, the US is 34th (it is 42nd overall atm)

if you subtract out all nations under 1 million, it is 30th
