President Trump Says He Is Taking Hydroxychloroquine

President Trump announced yesterday that he has been taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, but he says he has not tested positive for COVID-19.

The president has repeatedly touted the drug as a possible treatment for the coronavirus, despite medical experts warning of increased cardiac arrests among some patients, as well as studies indicating that COVID-19 patients who received the drug did not benefit from it.

President Trump said: “Here’s my evidence. I get a lot of positive calls about it. The only negative I’ve heard was the study where they gave it was at the VA with, you know, people that aren’t big Trump fans gave it.”

His remarks regarding his use of the drug come as a handful of COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed among staff in the White House.
