Over the past week or so, Donald Trump has repeatedly mentioned that the FDA has approved the use of two medicines as possible “cures” for coronavirus, hyping them as some sort of miracle drugs that will make COVID-19 go away so he can get back to his MAGA rallies and trying to win a second term in office.
In reality, the two drugs, chloroquine and azythromycin, have NOT been approved by the FDA to treat coronavirus.
But that hasn’t kept Trump from spreading misinformation about the drugs on Twitter:
HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains – Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents)…..

And now those lies about drugs have led to the death of a man and hospitalization of his wife after they took chloroquine, according to Banner Health:
“A man has died and his wife is under critical care after the couple, both in their 60s, ingested chloroquine phosphate, an additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks. Within thirty minutes of ingestion, the couple experienced immediate effects requiring admittance to a nearby Banner Health hospital.
“Most patients who become infected with COVID-19 will only require symptomatic care and self-isolation to prevent the risk of infecting others. Check first with a primary care physician. The routine use of specific treatments, including medications described as ‘anti-COVID-19’, is not recommended for non-hospitalized patients, including the anti-malarial drug chloroquine.”
There have also been numerous chloroquine overdoses in the nation of Nigeria within days of Trump suggesting the drug might be a cure for COVID-19.
All of this proves that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the health and well-being of people across the globe. He isn’t a doctor, and he’s too damn stupid to know that he doesn’t have a clue about what to do for a disease as complex as coronavirus. His daily press briefings either need to end or the media should stop covering them entirely before more people die.
One reply on “One Of Donald Trump’s Coronavirus ‘Miracle Cures’ Has Killed An American”
Having watched trump and his front line address on co-virus. I tried hard to see the light shine from this man donald john trump… I was bought up to look for the light in every person that I meet. I can not see any light shine from this black soul. Just how many families must loose loved ones by an unknown serious threat in cruel and agonizing ways too satisfy this man trump. I also noticed how miserable the three amigos look. Every one of the trumpsters I have seen surround trump look like they are suffering some sort of affliction. I now get it. I believe it is shock horror that he is still spouting shit that they must believe. Guess they too do not realize how bad they are going to look when trumpsville truly explodes. Just how many deaths does trumpsville need to make America Great Again?? How dare this so called genius think he can get his fat little hands back on the money coffers. When you think about the loss he must be still having with his towers of evil. Even before he entered he was struggling. He is still trying to become one of the biggest fat cats in the world. Well this too has a price. Wondering how much is hidden under all the trump mattresses that belong to the hard working Americans. Not the oligarchs BUT the workers and taxpayer money. Might be a good idea to check out what sort of funds are hidden in the children of the swine that are getting so rich on doing nothing but rob and steal and spout and look like they all have a fluffy something stuck up the rectum. I am so sick of trump and the idea of him still having power it is sickening. I am happy with our own leader. and government who have put our young country NZ into immediate lock down and we citizens as much as it hurts are happy to do what it takes to save our fellow kiwis and our precious children’s future in combating the unknown virus Down with trump it is like watching an open sore covering in maggots. Get rid of the virus that is ruining the outlook for us all…… Money is just not the answer to everything Humanity and survival lead to freedom of the spirit…. Take a hike trump
