President Donald Trump is defending his push for hydroxychloroquine to treat the deadly coronavirus, despite media backlash.

CNN’s Jeremy Diamond challenged Trump on the drug during the White House press briefing.

“Why not just let the science speak for itself? Why are you promoting this drug?” Diamond asked Trump.

“I’m trying to save lives,” Trump responded.

The president noted the federal government was purchasing the drugs in mass quantities.

Although Trump admitted hydroxychloroquine might not work, he said he doesn't want to wait a year for clinical tests.

“If it doesn’t work, it’s nothing lost by doing it,” Trump said. “Nothing.”

The president responded to various questions about hydroxychloroquine but ultimately repeated that it was worth trying.

“I don’t want to wait a year and a half to find out, and only CNN would ask that question,” he concluded.

“Fake news.”

As NewsThud reported last week, a prominent infectious disease specialist told Laura Ingraham last night that the combo use of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin is a game-changer and that he sincerely believes this is the beginning of the end of this pandemic:

WATCH:

Dr. Stephen Smith highlighted that none of his patients on the Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin combo for four to five days or more needed intubation, meaning they are in respiratory failure and in need of a ventilator.

He said for those that were intubated; it happened in the first two days of treatment.

Smith called this combo an absolute game changer and suggested it agrees with the french stats as well.

“We’ve had; I mentioned 20 intubations, most all of them occurred in the first two days,” Smith said.

“More importantly, no person who has received five days or more of the hydroxychloroquine-azithromycin combination has been intubated."

"The chance of that occurring by chance, according to my sons who did some stats for me, are .000 something," Dr. Smith explained.

“It’s a ridiculous low no matter how you look at it,” Smith continued.

Last week, Dr. Tony Fauci warned Americans the need to be "realistic" about coronavirus fatality figures, saying they need to prepare for at least 100,000 people to die.
