Trump unleashes on Fox News host who warned against use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19

On Monday, President Donald Trump retweeted multiple posts of right-wing personalities attacking Fox News host Neil Cavuto, including some calling him “an idiot” and “foolish and gullible,” for warning that hydroxychloroquine can cause life-threatening side effects.


Cavuto’s warning came immediately after the president said that he has been taking a prophylactic course of hydroxycholoroquine to prevent COVID-19 after members of his White House staff tested positive — even though overwhelming and growing medical evidence says that this drug has no effect on COVID-19.


In recent months, the president has soured on Fox News, frequently criticizing hosts like Cavuto who challenge his statements. He has increasingly turned instead to One America News, a smaller and even more far-right network, as his favorite TV source.
