The following article, Trump: FDA Issues Emergency Authorization of ‘Breakthrough’ Treatment for COVID Patients, was first published on Flag And Cross.
On Sunday afternoon, President Trump made a big announcement from the White House. It has to do with COVID-19. It involves a “major breakthrough.” This could be a very big deal.
Here’s what’s up, via Fox News:
Speaking to reporters from the White House Sunday, Trump said the FDA has “issued an emergency use authorization… for a treatment known as convalescent plasma.”

Here are some absurd liberal reactions:
Now even the FDA has fallen. Truth, science, data, and public safety out the window. Trump re-election the goal.https://t.co/xP59e46oDu

Trump goes against his own FDA on the efficacy of plasma treatment for Covid. This is the same man who suggested injecting disinfectant and using nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes. I think the words fucking moron come into play here.
