Donald Trump is promoting another dubious drug to treat and/or cure COVID-19, the virus that has killed almost 200,000 Americans this year. Oleandrin, an experimental extract from the poisonous plant Oleander, was presented to Trump during an Oval Office meeting in July, according to a report from Axios.

Oleandrin as COVID-19 cure is backed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell who recently bought a stake in a company that makes the product.

Trump said during the meeting that the FDA should approve it.

There is no proof that Oleandrin can cure COVID-19 and Donald Trump is only pushing for the FDA for its approval because his friends pitched the product to him. That's all that was needed for him to make such a dangerous recommendation.

Again: DO NOT LISTEN to anything the Donald Trump says about curing COVID-19. He has dementia. He is out of his mind.

Please be safe out there!
