The President once again expressed support for the drug hydroxychloroquine.
President Donald Trump said that he does not support some provisions of the Senate Republican bill to combat the economic consequences of coronavirus. Still, Trump said that he would not go into details and specify what exactly he does not like in the text of the bill. The head of state said this during a press briefing at the White House.
When asked by a reporter whether the bill has aspects that he does not support, Trump said: “Yes, in fact, there is, and we will talk about it. There are also things that I am very supportive of. But we will negotiate.., because the Democrats come with their needs, and the Republicans go with theirs,” the President added.
On Tuesday, the President once again expressed support for the drug hydroxychloroquine, calling it “extremely successful” in treating the deadly coronavirus.
Last month, the US Food and Drug Administration revoked permission for emergency use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 after publishing several studies questioning its effectiveness.
Meanwhile, Twitter blocked the account of the US President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., for 12 hours, citing that his message violates the social network’s policy on misinformation about coronavirus. The entry was deleted.
On Monday, Trump Jr. posted a video in his feed in which, in particular, the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is called a “drug” useful in the treatment of COVID-19.
During the block, Trump Jr. still has access to personal messages. He will not be able to publish his tweets, retweet, or put likes on other posts.
