Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced in a tweet on Friday that the White House would send the Senate three Abbott point of care testing machines and 1,000 tests.

Nonetheless, Pelosi and McConnell said that although Congress was thankful for the offer, they respectfully declined.

“Our country’s testing capacities are continuing to scale up nationwide and Congress wants to keep directing resources to the front-line facilities where they can do the most good the most quickly,” they said in a joint statement on Saturday.
