Democrats will do whatever they can to spit in Trump’s face.
Even if it means ignoring facts or endangering the lives of their citizens.
And this key Democrat betrayed Trump on the coronavirus. You won’t believe what happened next.
In the early days of America’s fight against COVID-19, radical leftists openly mocked and sneered at President Donald Trump’s fast action.
Trump quickly created a task force made of the country’s top medical experts to study and fight against this dangerous virus.
And when he announced that there was early indication that a medication used to treat malaria, chloroquine, may help in fighting this virus, many on the left mocked him. Some even went so far as to place a ban on the drug in their states.
One of those Democrats is Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
In an embarrassing reversal, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has asked the federal government for anti-malaria medication that may help treat the Chinese coronavirus after effectively banning doctors in the state from proscribing it to patients suffering from the deadly illness.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) recently threatened doctors with “administrative action” if they prescribed Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine to treat the coronavirus.
“Prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine without further proof of efficacy for treating COVID-19 or with the intent to stockpile the drug may create a shortage for patients with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other ailments for which chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are proven treatments,” read the letter. “… Again, these are drugs that have not been proven scientifically or medically to treat COVID-19.”
However, Michigan officials have since scrubbed the threat from the letter and now seek the drugs from the Trump administration, according to Bridge magazine.
Whitmer endangered the lives of every American living in her state, and possibly the entire country.
If these drugs prove to eliminate the deadly COVID-19 virus, then denying them would not only cause more deaths, but could cause the virus to spread further.
“We want to ensure that doctors have the ability to prescribe these medicines,” the governor said. “We also want to make sure that the people who have prescriptions that predated COVID-19 have access to the medication they need. And so all of the work that we’ve done is trying to strike that balance.”
Last week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved emergency use of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine as a possible coronavirus treatment, concluding that the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
“Based on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19,” FDA Chief Scientist Denise Hinton wrote in the approval letter.
“When used under the conditions described in this authorization, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate when used to treat COVID-19 outweigh the known and potential risks of such products.”
President Donald Trump has repeatedly touted the anti-malaria drugs as a possible treatment for the illness.
Whitmer’s about-face comes after she claimed, without evidence, that vendors were being told not to supply medical equipment to Michigan after Trump criticized her handling of the outbreak in her state.
Many were quick to point out Whitmer’s quick change of mind.
Even President Trump was quick to point out the Governor’s incompetence.
I love Michigan, one of the reasons we are doing such a GREAT job for them during this horrible Pandemic. Yet your Governor, Gretchen “Half” Whitmer is way in over her head, she doesn’t have a clue. Likes blaming everyone for her own ineptitude! #MAGA

Trump will continue to work for the good of this country, despite anyone who opposes his work.
