President Trump, who has touted the alleged benefits of hydroxychloroquine and used the drug himself for 14 days, defended the doctor on Tuesday.
“She was on the air with many other doctors,” he said. “They were big fans of hydroxychloroquine. And I thought she was very impressive in the sense that she came from – I don’t know what country she’s from – but she says she’s had great success with hundreds of different patients and I thought her voice was an important voice but I don’t know about her. ‘
He said on Tuesday that “many doctors” think hydroxychloroquine is successful.
“Many doctors think it is extremely successful,” he said. ‘The hydroxychloroquine in combination with the z-pack. And some people think it has become political. I took it for a 14 day period. And I’m here. I think it works in the early stages. I think frontline people believe that too. Some. A lot of. So we’ll look into it.
“All we know. It’s been out for a long time, that specific formula and that’s essentially what it is, the pill, and it’s been for malaria, lupus and other things, ‘Trump said. ‘It’s safe. It does not cause any problems. I had no problem. I had no problem at all. Didn’t feel any different. Didn’t feel good, bad or indifferent. ‘
In his Twitter post on Monday, Trump retweeted a video in which Immanuel claims that hydroxychloroquine works to fight the virus, which has infected more than 4.42 million people and killed more than 151,000 Americans.
Video of her fiery speech was shared on Twitter, where it was viewed more than 14 million times on Monday, partly as a result of the promotion by far-right news organizations, but Twitter later removed it.
Facebook and YouTube also began to remove videos of its claims, claiming it was spreading disinformation about the pandemic.
Immanuel demanded that the social media platforms re-upload her videos after being removed due to the spread of disinformation. She claimed that if they did not repost her speech, God would crash their computers.
“Hi Facebook has put back my profile page and videos or your computers are starting to crash until you do it. You are no bigger than God. I promise you. If my page is not backed up, the book will be in Jesus name, ”Immanuel said in a tweet buggy Monday evening.
