President Trump tears into ’60 Minutes’ after segment with whistleblower Bright James Woods defends Trump: He ‘loves America more than any president in my lifetime’ Kansas governor to meet with Trump at White House on Monday revealed he’s taking hydroxychloroquine, a controversial drug that he’s championed as a potential treatment for coronavirus despite limited evidence from the medical community.
Trump said he consulted with the White House doctor about taking the drug, but it was not recommended for him.
“I asked him what do you think. He said, ‘Well if you’d like it.’ I said, ‘Yeah I’d like it. I’d like to take it.'”
He said he’s been taking the drug for about a week-and-a-half and based his decision on positive reviews he’s heard from frontline healthcare workers.
“So far, I seem to be ok,” Trump said.
