A Democratic lawmaker suffering from coronavirus has come out and credited President Trump for saving her life. Rep. Karen Whitsett began taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine prescribed by her doctor after hearing Trump praising the drug.
Whitsett stated, “It has a lot to do with the president … bringing it up. He is the only person who has the power to make it a priority.”
She was asked if she believed Trump saved her life and she replied, “Yes, I do. I do thank him for that.”
Trump heard about her recovery and tweeted out:
Congratulations to State Representative Karen Whitsett of Michigan. So glad you are getting better! https://t.co/v6z46rUDtg
