LOL - the 'experts' trump listens to concerning Covid include Giuliani and Kushner.






Actual medical exports claim there is not a clinically proven case to support the use of hydroxychloroquine, 


When asked if the drug was promising Friday, Fauci, standing next to Trump, said “the answer is no” because “the evidence you’re talking about … is anecdotal evidence.”

“The information that you’re referring to specifically is antecdotal,” he added. “It was not done in a controlled clinical trial. So you really can’t make any definitive statement about it.”

Well one thing is certain.  As a result of Trump spouting about the drug, with or without any scientific evidence of its efficacy.  There has been a nationwide run on the drug leaving long time users for malaria & Lupus unable to renew their prescriptions.  And now, the main supplier (40%) of the drug to the US (India) have banned all exports of the drug.  Their crisis is looming & they are conserving resources. So the drug is going to be even more difficult to source.  A president's comments carry a lot of weight & influence.  The ramifications can be profound and widespread.  They should be well considered, not just childish verbal diahorrea for self aggrandizement. 


and suppose an india company developed an excellent vaccine for covid 19, then trump must shut up and not mention it out of concern indian will ban exporting it?


superbly flawed logic

No evidence other than it has cured over 98 percent of the people who have received the drug. 


Reuters is always a good source of a liberal narrative. 


The lengths the left will go to to twist reality to spew this garbage is amazing. 


Keep it up, then you can have another 4 year term. 

You've done well with absorbing trump political propaganda - congrats. Another 'expert' contravening current actual medical specialists advisory.




A lot more clinical investigation needs to be done, not least interaction with other treatments a patient is receiving e.g. diabetes
