The Trump campaign is praising the results of a new study that found that hydroxychloroquine doubled the survival rate of patients hospitalized with COVID-19, Fox News reports.
"Fortunately, the Trump Administration secured a massive supply of hydroxychloroquine for the national stockpile months ago," the campaign tweeted. "Yet this is the same drug that the media and the Biden campaign spent weeks trying to discredit and spread fear and doubt around because President Trump dared to mention it as a potential treatment for coronavirus.”
President Donald Trump touted the drug as a possible treatment for the coronavirus and even took a course of the drug. He was ridiculed for placing so much attention on the drug. Other studies have found the drug to be ineffective and even dangerous.
The Trump campaign put out a statement on the study, "The new study from the Henry Ford Health System should be a clear message to the media and the Democrats: stop the bizarre attempts to discredit hydroxychloroquine to satisfy your own anti-Trump agenda. It may be costing lives.”
Other conservatives chimed in about the study results on social media.
Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell tweeted, “So fewer people died because they took the drug @realDonaldTrump suggested.... Thank you, POTUS for doing the right thing even in the face of a DC culture attacking you no matter what you do."
The Federalist's Sean Davis posted, "Media and incompetent corrupt government officials lied to you about social distancing. They lied to you about hydroxychloroquine. They lied to you about risks to children and the general population. They lied not to help you, but to control you, and they’re not going to stop."
