Nancy Pelosi, Speaker House of Representatives, has said it was "not a good idea" for Trump to be taking the drug hydroxychloroquine. The drug has shown side effects in patients with heart problems and other health issues. Nancy Pelosi further stated: "As far as the President is concerned, he's our President and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group -- morbidly obese, they say. So, I think it's not a good idea".

Trump previously stated he has been taking the drug, which has been used for preventing or treating malaria, as a "preventive measure".
