President Donald Trump said Monday he's been taking the drug hydroxychloroquine for a week and a half. "I take it because I hear very good things" about it, Trump said at the White House after a meeting with restaurant executives. Trump has repeatedly touted the drug as a coronavirus treatment, even as the Food and Drug Administration has cautioned against its use outside of hospitals or in clinical-trial settings. Trump told reporters he has repeatedly tested negative for coronavirus and that "so far I seem to be OK" after taking the drug. He said he had consulted with the White House doctor about using it.
