It’s time they know how he really feels.
President Trump recently announced that he was taking hydroxychloroquine and a host from Fox News decided to go against Trump and stated that there were several health dangers related to taking the drug.
Trump was fed up and tweeted, “.@FoxNews is no longer the same. We miss the great Roger Ailes. You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before. Looking for a new outlet!”

The statement the Fox News host Neil Cavuto said was:
A number of studies, those certainly vulnerable in the population have one thing to lose, their lives. A VA study showed that among a population of veterans in a hospital receiving this treatment, those with vulnerable conditions, respiratory conditions, heart elements, they died.
Those who took it, in a vulnerable population, including those with respiratory or other conditions, they died. I want to stress again — they died. If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus or, in a worst-case scenario, you are dealing with the virus, and you are in this vulnerable population, it will kill you. I cannot stress that enough. This will kill you.
So again, whatever benefit the president says this has — and certainly has had for those suffering from malaria, dealing with lupus — this is a leap that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, ‘well, the President of the United States says it’s okay.
Cavuto wasn’t the only one. A Fox medical contributor also called Trump’s hydroxychloroquine announcement “highly irresponsible.”
