President Trump said he takes hydroxychloroquine as a preventative for COVID-19. “I take it,” Trump told reporters, noting that he asked his doctor, “I’d like it. I’d like to take it,” and said Dr. Rick Bright opposed the drug.
President Trump: "I happen to be taking it. I'm taking it, hydroxychloroquine. A couple weeks ago I started taking it…I get a lot of positive calls about it…I take a pill every day."
