On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson discussed how President Trump only could have taken hydroxychloroquine after having a “doctor-patient’ discussion with the current White House Physician, who previously took Dr. Jackson’s place.
“I was up there all day on Monday, the day that he announced it and I was with his physician, the guy that took my place up there. And we had a lengthy conversation about it. Yeah. His doctor and he had a conversation about it. I’m sure that was brought up when the exposures happened up there in there, like, what else can we do to keep the President? And his doctor, being responsible, said we can do one additional thing in addition to all the other precautions that we’re taking, checking people’s temperatures and doing testing, daily testing and things of that nature, that we can put the President on in this prophylactic doses. So he sat down and discussed it with the President and the two of them, in a doctor-patient relationship, decided that that’s what they were going to do. So his White House physician, the guy that took my place, he’s the one that prescribed it to him.”
