Ohio state Rep. Tavia Galonski vowed on Twitter that she will make a “referral for crimes against humanity” over President Donald Trump’s endorsement of the drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for coronavirus.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski, a Democrat, tweeted late Sunday. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

Trump has repeatedly promoted the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine, which is approved to treat conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, as a potential treatment for the coronavirus, according to The Hill. This despite its unproven benefits and lack of Food and Drug Administration approval for such treatment.

"What do you have to lose?” Trump said at a press briefing late Sunday. “I’m not looking at it one way or another. But we want to get out of this. If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn’t do it early."

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci has consistently been against the idea and reiterated to CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that "The data are really just at best suggestive. There have been cases that show there may be an effect, and there are others to show there's no effect. So I think in terms of science, I don't think we could definitively say it works."
