Ohio state Rep. Tavia Galonski (D) said that she will make a "referral for crimes against humanity" over President Trump's promotion of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for novel coronavirus, despite its unproven benefits and lack of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
"I can't take it anymore. I've been to The Hague. I'm making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow," Galonski tweeted late Sunday.
"Today's press conference was the last straw," Galonski added. "I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one."
Trump has repeatedly promoted hydroxychloroquine, which is approved to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, as a potential treatment for the virus, which the FDA said last week has led to a shortage of the drug.
At a press briefing late Sunday, the president recommended the drug despite limited evidence of its efficacy in treating the virus, saying "What do you have to lose? I'm not looking at it one way or another. But we want to get out of this. If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn't do it early."
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci has reportedly been at odds with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro about promoting the drug, and said Sunday that its benefits remain largely unknown.
"The data are really just at best suggestive. There have been cases that show there may be an effect, and there are others to show there's no effect," Fauci said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "So I think in terms of science, I don't think we could definitively say it works."

Someone who needs lead therapy.
I actually want the unhinged weirdos to keep talking. Are we sure they’re not being paid by Trump’s campaign?
That is T.D.S. in all it’s glory.
It’s a crime against humanity to promote the use of something that has possible benefits but very little risk.
Meanwhile, back in NY, they were asking people to hug an Asian.
then she should outlaw the medicine for anyone in her district or state.
Yep, President Trump was correct, theyre coming for us, hes standing in their way .....
These people are more dangerous than the virus. this drug shows promise everywhere its tried. The person who should be tried is Obama and his regime for not resupplying after the Ebola outbreak.
Initially appointed, then a 61% winner last election
Possible for a Republican to take her out in a Trump wave.
You dont know JS.
OFFS! Is she series? Nah, just friggin’ igno.
Likely a wacko from Cleveland...wish she would have stayed overseas...there’s a fine no-go zone that would have taken her in.
Another mindless dimocommie with a brain. Man, do these people EVER stop for one millisecond and THINK before opening their @$$ and speaking?? I thought not. My bad.
A POC who is also a POS. Why am I not surprised?
If ignorance were a virtue, this clown would be a saint.
Hey look at me! I’m important! I forget how Democrats kept Blacks subservient, living in the slums with welfare checks. I forget that not one Democrat voted for the Equal Rights Amendment. I forget that Republicans freed the slaves.
TDS writ large.
Good thing the cow cannot do that. So many despots popping up. Good to know who, and where, they are.
Proving once again that the 19th amendment should have had a sunset clause.
Well, Tavia, next time you go to Europe...just stay there, okay?
