We wouldn’t do that. That’s just beyond the scope of reason in terms of what we’d do.” Read More

President Donald Trump casually let slip Monday afternoon that he’s been taking hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug he’s touted as a promising treatment for Covid-19 patients that has become a lightning rod for controversy.
“A couple of weeks ago, I started taking it,” Trump told reporters during a roundtable at the White House with restaurant executives and industry leaders.
“I was just waiting to see your eyes light up when I said this,” Trump added. Read More
