FDA: This Drug Could Kill You. Trump: I'm Taking It! - 2020-05-18
President Donald Trump said on Monday that he has been taking the unproven anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventative treatment for the coronavirus.
Recent studies have shown that the drug has little to no effectiveness in treating the coronavirus, and the FDA has issued a warning regarding its potentially deadly side-effects.
Speaking to reporters on Monday afternoon, the president took aim at ousted vaccine chief Dr. Rick Bright, who recently came forward with a whistleblower complaint about the Trump administration's push of the controversial drug.
