Disinfectants

At the same press conference where he advocated for UV light treatment of the coronavirus, Trump said of disinfectants:

“And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that. So, that, you’re going to have to use medical doctors with. But it sounds — it sounds interesting to me.”

In predictable Trump style, the president now says he was being sarcastic by suggesting people’s life are put into danger by having them ingest disinfectants.
