(FamilyRetirementClub.com)- President Donald Trump has long touted the possible benefits of treating coronavirus patients with drugs like hydroxychloroquine and remdesivir. Democrats, who choose to disagree with virtually everything the president says, mocked Trump relentlessly for his suggestion and suddenly went quiet when the FDA approved the use of remdesivir and Europe started stocking up on the drug.
This week, President Trump announced that he is taking hydroxychloroquine and zinc as a preventative against catching the coronavirus, and the Democrats are melting down.
“I happen to be taking it”, Trump said during a press conference. “I’m taking it. Hydroxychloroquine. Right now, yeah.”
Discussing the ongoing efforts to control the virus and its impact on the economy, President Trump told reporters that the drug is safe to use and that he has been taking it since earlier this month.
“I’m taking the two, the zinc and the hydroxy, and all I can tell you is, so far I seem to be OK,” he said.
Trump also told the journalists that he chose to start taking the drug after his doctor recommended it, and several other doctors sent him letters from all over the country about the positive effects of the virus they’re seeing.
“I’ve heard a lot of good stories and if it is not good, I will tell you right,” he promised. “I’m not going to get hurt by it.”
It comes after CNN and other far-left networks have piled on the president for promoting the drug, claiming that it is dangerous. Even failed presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris called the president a “drug pusher.” Even the BBC, the British state broadcasting company that is regularly criticized by British conservatives as biased, made a point of telling viewers that the drug was unproven.
Then, during an interview with Anderson Cooper on left-wing news channel CNN, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized the president for taking the drug before calling him “morbidly obese.” This is what a meltdown looks like.
The Democrats are wrong when they call the drug dangerous, too. It has been approved by the FDA for use as a treatment for various ailments for many decades. Despite this, the president promised to report back on how the drug affects him and to give an honest analysis of whether it works or not.
“I want the people of this nation to feel good, I don’t want them being sick and there’s a very good chance that this has an impact, especially early on,” he described.
“You know the expression that I’ve used…what do you have to lose?” he asked. “What do you have to lose?”
