Hot news about Trump’s scam about Hydroxychloroquine

Trump has been VIGOROUSLY promoting Hydroxycholoroquine  REPEATEDLY in his official presidential TV broadcasts.

Recently it was reported that Trump owns part of a company that makes the snake oil medicine he has been VIGOROUSLY promoting.

He was using his power as President of the U.S. to make presidential briefings on nationwide TV networks about the Coronavirus pandemic that is devastating our nation.  But — instead of providing truthful information — he turned these nationwide broadcasts into “INFO-MERCIALS” in which Trump (a notorious liar and pitch-man for his many fraudulent business scams) promoted what could be called a “snake oil: medicine made by businesses in which Trump and his cronies have invested.  The medicine is NOT medically valid for treating Coronavirus.  Instead, it has some serious health dangers, including death.

This is not only DISHONEST, but it is also AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE because the Constitution EXPLICITLY PROHIBITS “emoluments,” the old term for using your political office in order to enrich yourself.
