DNC on Trump Rejecting Health Experts and Promoting Dubious Doctor During Coronavirus Briefing

In response to Trump doubling down on his recommendation of hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment despite his own FDA warning against its use and saying a doctor who pushes absurd medical conspiracy theories is “spectacular,” DNC War Room senior spokesperson and advisor Lily Adams released the following statement:

“Trump spent today’s coronavirus briefing promoting snake oil doctors and unsafe, unproven treatments because he is incapable of acting decisively to get the coronavirus under control as we near 150,000 deaths, cases spike nationwide, and millions of Americans remain unemployed. There’s no new tone – this is who Trump is and always will be: a conspiracy theorist content to gamble with the lives of others. We need a president who listens to real medical experts and can be trusted to make decisions that will keep Americans safe.”
