President Taking Antimalaria Drug as Preventative

He revealed he has been taking hydroxychloroquine for about ten days.

On Monday, President Trump revealed to reporters that he is taking the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in an effort to prevent getting COVID-19.

During a roundtable with restaurant leaders at the White House’s state dining room, the president said, “A lot of good things have come out about the hydroxy. A lot of good things have come out. You’d be surprised at how many people are taking it, especially the front-line workers — before you catch it. I happen to be taking it. I happen to be taking it. … I’m taking it — hydroxychloroquine — right now.”

“I think it’s good. I’ve heard a lot of good stories. And if it’s not good, I’ll tell you right. I’m not going to get hurt by it,” he added. “It’s been around for 40 years.”

He has been taking it “for about a week and a half,” he said.

The president said he doesn’t believe he was exposed to the virus but that he decided to take the drug after having consulted with the White House physician. Any kind of formal endorsement of the drug has not been made by the CDC, the Institutes of Health, or the physician members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Trump to continue in good health and be protected as he meets with a number of people during any given day.
  • That the president will be protected from any risk or side effects of taking the antimalaria drug.
