Trump hails hydroxychloroquine after Bright's comments

United States President Donald Trump said on the White House lawn on Thursday that he received "great response" from doctors on the use of hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of the coronavirus.

Trump added that whistleblower Dr. Rick Bright is fighting the use of hydroxychloroquine for "no reason" while noted that "a lot of people have sworn by it." The president went on to say he watched Dr. Bright in Congress and characterized him as a "disgruntled unhappy person" who was not good at his job.

Earlier, Dr. Bright praised the use of remdesivir to treat the coronavirus and said there was no proof hydroxychloroquine was an effective treatment. Trump has been praising the use of the anti-malaria drug for months.
