Reeling from mounting death tolls and escalating criticism of his administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump searched for a silver lining on Tuesday by touting an unproven drug during a meeting with people who had recovered from the infection.

It was the latest episode in Trump's weeks-long promotion of hydroxycloroquine as a possible treatment or preventive for COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, even though clinical trials have yet to confirm his claims.

"I haven't heard a bad story. It's pretty amazing, actually," Trump said. "The word is out."
