Trump Claims to be Taking Hydroxychloroquine

Donald Trump revealed Monday he is taking hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug he has pushed for weeks as a treatment for coronavirus -- even though he has tested negative and federal health agencies have warned of serious negative side effects

"I take it," he told reporters. "All I can tell you is, so far, I feel okay."

The president said he has taken only an initial dose. "It seems to have an impact," he said. "Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't. ... You're not going to get sick and die."

Mr Trump said he has taken the drug for "about a week and a half now," adding: "I take a pill everyday" and has had "zero symptoms."
How could he have gotten a prescription? Isnt it unethical for an MD to write a prescription for a drug a patient doesnt need?

Trump said he has only 'taken an initial dose' but then that he has been taking it for 'about a week and a half'.

Could Trump be lying (not for any political reason but because he has a narcissistic need to be at the center of everything)?

If he is telling the truth is he putting his life at risk?
