President Trump reveals that he has been taking Hydroxychloroquine

President Donald Trump revealed Monday he is taking hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug he has pushed for weeks as a treatment for the Wuhan Virus. Clinical trials of the drug have shown promise as well, worldwide.

President Trump told reporters today at the White House: “I take it,” he told reporters. “All I can tell you is, so far, I feel okay.”

The president said he has taken only an initial dose: “It seems to have an impact. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t. … You’re not going to get sick and die.”

President Trump said he has taken the drug for “about a week and a half now,” adding: “I take a pill every day” and has had “zero symptoms.”

President Trump also stated he does not have the Virus and that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure.
