Trump Is Not Responsible for the Death of a Man Who Swallowed Fish Tank Cleaner

An Arizona man died after swallowing a chemical used in fish tank cleaners, and many in the media know just who to blame: President Donald Trump.

The man and his wife both ingested chloroquine phosphate, reportedly believing it to be a miracle cure for coronavirus. The wife has survived and is blaming her husband's death on President Trump, who cited preliminary and unconfirmed research that the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine could be used to treat COVID-19. This apparently convinced the pair that they should immediately obtain chloroquine phosphate—a different form of the chemical—and consume it.

"We saw Trump on TV—every channel—and all of his buddies said that this was safe," the woman told NBC. "Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure."

Many in the media are also blaming Trump for this death, either implicitly or explicitly. "Arizona Man Dies After Taking Chemical in Coronavirus Treatment Touted by President Trump," proclaimed Time magazine. CBS initially reported the same.
