WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump indicated Wednesday that he will finish his preventative hydroxychloroquine regimen "in a day or two."

"I think it’s two days. Two days," Trump said from the Cabinet Room at the White House.

Trump had announced Monday that he was taking hydroxychloroquine, a drug that he's repeatedly touted as a treatment for coronavirus despite warnings about its effectiveness, as a prophylaxis against the coronavirus.

Trump, who said he has tested negative for COVID-19, stated Monday he had been taking the drug daily for about a week and a half as an added measure to avoid getting the coronavirus. He said the White House physician "didn't recommend" hydroxychloroquine but offered it to him.

Hardly work noting, but this is totally nonsensical (from this president? No!).

I would say, generously, that the jury is still out with hydroxychloroquine and Covid - theoretically it might work (many things theoretically might work) but so far there is no good evidence of beneficial effect in practice, and some suggestion of adverse effect.

But even if it was effective, it wouldn’t be a one-and-done, any more than taking statins for a week will cure your heart disease and protect you for all time.

Which is to say, this is more magical thinking on Trump’s part.

If he actually took it in the first place. I think it was just another lie.

He didn't take sheit, he was just selling his point of view, the sad thing is that the folks he's selling it to don't know it's a sales job - so they just keep buying

If I were to bet on this, I would bet that he took nothing. All show.

I wonder who is benefiting from the sales of that product?
