Donald Trump told a stunned room of reporters on Monday that he’s been taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which has been shown to cause potentially fatal heart problems, for a week and a half just in case he gets the coronavirus.
“I happen to be taking. I’m taking it. Hydroxychloroquine. Right now, yeah. Couple of weeks ago, started taking it. Cause I think it’s good, I’ve heard a lot of good stories. And if it’s not good, I’m not going to get hurt by it. … I hope to not be able to take it soon. … Hey, people said ‘oh maybe he owns the company. I don’t own the company. I want the people of this nation to feel good. I don’t want them being sick.”
Even FOX News is stunned.
Said Neil Cavuto: “If you are in a risky population here, and you are taking this as a preventative treatment … it will kill you. I cannot stress enough. This will kill you.”
