Trump claims US doctors make "more money if somebody dies from Covid", AMA calls the suggestion "malicious, outrageous, and completely misguided"

President Donald Trump falsely claimed that doctors "doctors get more money if somebody dies from Covid" during a rally in Waterford Township, Michigan.

"Our doctors get more money if somebody dies from COVID. You know that, right? I mean our doctors are very smart people. So what they do is they say 'I'm sorry but everybody dies of COVID,'" he alleged.

The AMA, American Medical Association, released a statement on Friday, condemning Trump's statement and calling his suggestion "malicious, outrageous, and completely misguided."
