Please Shut Up, Mr. Trump

Statement of Dr. Michael Carome, Director, Public Citizen’s Health Research Group

Note: At Thursday night’s White House briefing, President Donald Trump said, “And then I see the disinfectant, and is there a way we can do something like that – by injection inside.”

Enough is enough. Trump’s dangerous suggestion that injections of disinfectants might be useful for treating coronavirus infections is among the stupidest ideas to emerge from his mouth during the nightly White House carnival shows.

Trump’s utterances are going to get people killed.

That he truly believes such imbecilic ideas are worth pursuing should terrify all Americans. One could not find a more unfit person to be president.
