He should definitely be listening to the Chinese, that's for sure. They've had more time to analyse the virus and potential treatments for it.

The preliminary tests from China do not show positive results:

"The report published by the Journal of Zhejiang University in China showed that patients who got the medicine didn’t fight off the new coronavirus more often than those who did not get the medicine." ref

Listen to them? Sure. Believe what they say blindly? No. The West surviving or their economies doing well is not the goal of Communism's ideolgy.

But Bronto says we should believe what Agent Orange tells U.S. blindly???????? 18,000 lies is supposed to instill confidence in this 15 flusher?? (Used to be called a four-flusher, but, ya'know … things have changed everywhere ;-)

Hey look. After 5 minutes of study, look what I found.

Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are oral prescription drugs that have been used for treatment of malaria and certain inflammatory conditions. Chloroquine has been used for malaria treatment and chemoprophylaxis, and hydroxychloroquine is used for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and porphyria cutanea tarda. Both drugs have in-vitro activity against SARS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2, and other coronaviruses, with hydroxychloroquine having relatively higher potency against SARS-CoV-2 [1,4,5]. A study in China reported that chloroquine treatment of COVID-19 patients had clinical and virologic benefit versus a comparison group, and chloroquine was added as a recommended antiviral for treatment of COVID-19 in China [6]. Based upon limited in-vitro and anecdotal data, chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine are currently recommended for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in several countries. Both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have known safety profiles with the main concerns being cardiotoxicity (prolonged QT syndrome) with prolonged use in patients with hepatic or renal dysfunction and immunosuppression but have been reportedly well-tolerated in COVID-19 patients.

Trump should focus on putting junk food in his mouth and let others do the talking.

Trump does not know what science is, and is so corrupt he would start selling his own Trump Cure. You get free steaks with every 3 purchases. No refunds.

Side: No

Should Trump be touting medicines like chloroquine for treating COVID-19?

Should he quote science and medical advisors? Nah. Believe Rachel Maddow who says the media should boycott the task teams' updates despite most of them being from previous administrations and being the highest experts in their field....

Surely Trump made it up. Wait. What's this???
