U.S. House Speaker Democrat Nancy Pelosi, on CNN, criticized Donald Trump for taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine.
Pelosi noted that the president should not take a drug that is not approved by scientists, given his age group and overweight. The speaker noted that in this way Trump gives people false hope.
Earlier, Trump admitted that he takes the medicine daily for the prevention of COVID-19. The American leader said that he consulted with a White House doctor and he did not discourage him from using this drug.
