Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday that it's "not a good idea" for President Trump to be taking hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for coronavirus.
"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," Pelosi said during an appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."
"So, I think that it's not a good idea," she said.
Trump said earlier in the day that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine, which is used to treat malaria, for the past week and a half after one of his personal valets tested positive for the coronavirus.
Trump has repeatedly touted the drug as a potential coronavirus cure or preventative measure over the past two months, despite the lack of evidence that it's effective against the disease.
"Heres my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it," Trump said on Monday. "So far, I seem to be OK."
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) also called Trump's decision to take hydroxychloroquine "reckless."
"I know him saying he is taking it, whether he is or not, is reckless, reckless, reckless. It gives people false hope, has people avoid real medical attention, and can actually cause them trouble. It is just dangerous what he did," Schumer said on MSNBC.
The Food and Drug Administration warned last month that the drug should not be taken outside of a hospital or clinical trial due to the risk of heart rhythm problems.
An analysis of patients at Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country found that the death rates of people treated with hydroxychloroquine were higher than those who did not receive the treatment.
The White House later Monday released a memo from the president's physician

Biden sniffing kids and fingering women ...probably not a good idea.
It is still amazing that not one elderly with underlying condition socialist of the democrat party has not been struck down...
“Come on down to Chinatown and have a good time, folks! There is nothing to worry about!”
“”I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists...”
It’s been an approved drug for decades.
Why do they say such nonsensical and delusional things.
I’m not the first commenter to say this, but if President Trump said that Stacey Abrams was “morbidly obese,” it would lead the news, and Trump would be universally denounced as a racist body-shamer.
Gee if this drug kills whats the problem I thought the commies want trump dead..nah its because they know this drug works its what terrifies them..they need this insanity to go on til the election they cant let a cure occur now and something as cheap as hydroxy..oh and Nancy look in the mirror you plastic face lopsided looking swamp creature
Or Jerry Wadler.
So we cant make fun of that ghettopotamus from Georgia that Biden is looking at as VP but they can call the President fat.
So speaketh the BOTOXIAN and the little rat faced NY QUEER
What a morbidly ugly thing to say!
Her only motive here is the golden opportunity to call POTUS a fatty beneath a veil of false concern.
Forget everything else.
She is purposely crude, vulgar and extremely disrespectful.
She therefore opens herself to the same treatment.
What goes around, comes around, bitch.
Isn’t that drounds for a censure resolution?
Oh we can and we will.
As her staff schedules her next botulinum toxin injection
She’s the reason the term “GHETTOPOTAMUS” was coined.
Is she giving medical advice without a license?
