First Thing: Trump reveals he is taking hydroxychloroquine
President says he is taking anti-malarial as a defense against Covid-19, despite FDA warnings about its risks. Plus, Wisconsin looking like its a failed state
Donald Trump said he is taking the anti-malarial hydroxychloroquine to guard against the coronavirus, despite FDA warnings that it may not only be ineffective in treating Covid-19, but could also cause heart problems. The president claimed he recently started taking “a pill every day” as he attacked the administration whistleblower Rick Bright, who says he was dismissed from his role overseeing US vaccine development after resisting pressure from above to endorse the unproven drug.
