President Donald Trump shocked the world this week when he admitted during a press conference that he has been taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine.
Trump’s opponents and detractors alike were surprised at the revelation. However, the White House Doctor and President Trump’s personal physician, Commander Sean Conley, wrote a memo about conversations with Trump regarding use of the drug saying the drug has a “potential benefit” against the coronavirus.
“After numerous discussions, he and I had regarding the evidence for and against the use of hydroxychloroquine, we concluded the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks,” Conley wrote in his memo.
The memo continued to state that Trump was in “very good health” and “symptom-free” of coronavirus and all tests were negative.
Trump admitted he used it during an answer at a press conference. “I’m taking the two, the zinc and the hydroxy, and all I can tell you is, so far I seem to be ok,” he said.
