Dr. Stella Immanuel recently spoke before the Supreme Court and gave a press conference in Washington D.C. with other members of a group called America's Frontline Doctors.
“I was very impressed with her and other doctors that stood with her,” Trump said Wednesday before leaving the White House for Texas, according to Associated Press.
Trump lashed out at social media companies for labelling her comments misinformation and removing the video that featured her: “I was very impressed by her. I know nothing about her, I had never seen her before, but certainly you could put her up and let her have a voice. So what they did is they took down their voice. Now, they seem to never take down the other side. They only take down conservative voices.”
“And with hydroxy, all I want to do is save lives,” Trump added.
Hydroxychloroquine performed pretty poorly in several early clinical trials as a treatment for the virus---and as a result, it was largely dismissed as an option.But a brand new study has shown promise that hydroxychloroquine could, in fact, lessen the risk of death for COVID patients.Dr. Steven Kalkanis is the CEO and chief academic officer of the Henry Ford Medical Group in Detroit.
The hydroxychloroquine video was shared on social media, with Breitbart promoting it.
Donald Trump Jr.'s Twitter account was temporarily frozen Tuesday for sharing the video, which violated the site's rules against promoting coronavirus misinformation. The video was removed by Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. President Trump also retweeted the video Tuesday.
There have been more than 151,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths in the US.
