Trump announces emergency use authorization of plasma treatment for COVID-19

President Trump just announced on Sunday afternoon that the FDA has issued official emergency authorization for a breakthrough COVID-19 treatment that’s being touted as a game-changer. 

Speaking to the press during his daily coronavirus briefing, Trump revealed that the FDA has “issued an emergency use authorization… for a treatment known as convalescent plasma.”

“This is a powerful therapy that transfuses very very strong antibodies from the blood of recovered patients to help treat patients battling a current infection,” Trump said, explaining that the emergency use designation will “expand access to this treatment.”

“Based on the science and the data, the FDA has made the independent determination that the treatment is safe and very effective,” Trump continued, urging Americans that have recovered from COVID-19 to donate their plasma for the treatment.

The convalescent plasma treatment for COVID-19 isn’t a new concept, as the treatment has been used experimentally since the early days of the pandemic. Fox News reports that “More than 64,000 patients in the U.S. have been given convalescent plasma, a century-old approach to fend off flu and measles before vaccines. It’s a go-to tactic when new diseases come along, and history suggests it works against some, but not all, infections.”

Anti-Trump media pundits are already working overtime to undermine the efficacy of the newly-authorized treatment, however. CNN commentator Jake Tapper led the attack by tweeting just minutes after the announcement:

So what just happened and why? Among those skeptical there’s enough data to justify emergency authorization of plasma for COVID-19: Dr. Francis Collins of National Institutes of Health; Dr. Tony Fauci and H. Clifford Lane of National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases.

These experts have said they don’t think the biggest study yet of this treatment, from Mayo Clinic, was sufficient. They want more data. Two major studies are currently being conducted.

There’s disappointment being expressed among health experts by what happened today, especially in [FDA commissioner Steven Hahn], who for the second time (the first being with hydroxychloroquine) has seemed to them to bend to political pressure rather than following scientific protocol.

It’s worth noting that CNN had absolutely nothing but good things to say in March when Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state would conduct clinical trials of the treatment, touting doctors that claimed plasma treatments for COVID-19 were a “big step” forward.

    1. Oh you watch when this election is over everything will go back to some what normal. .did people out there even think for one second why all this turmoil ,violence, protesting George the guy that died all this BLM CRAP the virus why it just started?well the Democrats have pulled some of the most evil things against Trump every since he won in 2016.you know how shocked and upset the were.well think about why all this is happening now at election time.the think by pulling this stunt that people will blame Trump.they want this country to hit rock bottom they dont care .all they want is to take over this country and run it into the ground forever.they blame Trump for everything.vote Red Trump 2020.

      1. It is quite obvious that every opportunity to reduce the effects of the Covid-19 is objected to by the Democrats. I still think they connived with China and the WHO to pop this on the world for their sick aims! Same for George Floyd and the rioting as the autopsy shows he killed himself with a fatal dose of drugs that caused all that commotion and the police were following protocol. Of course it didn’t go down that way as Dems controlled info, police, city council..you name it. They have been disgusting since all this started. BTW the mail in ballot is their big push to steal the election by breaking every rule in the book.

        1. I think Hunter Biden brought it here from China. That’s why he got the big from China. With daddy in the WH it will all go away

        2. Demonrats would hang their own mother for power they are the most evil corrupt rotten people ever get them out of office while we still have our Country and our freedom

      2. I agree with you completely.
        As hateful as the Democrats are they may continue to do this if Trump win again. Hopefully he will get more Republicans in the states and get rid of all those crazy Democrats. Red all the way 2020. I’m have been and I’m still on the Trump Train.

      3. Yep, all of the hullabaloo about the dangers of this particular virus, while ignoring viruses all of their lives, is all the results of democrats, trying their dead level best to destroy President Trump and ALL REPUBLICANS. The mask is as stupid as any idiot can get, yet it is PREACHED by imbeciles that it can stop the virus from crawling from the mask to do its damage to others…..and standing 6 feet from other people is another idiotic bit of trying, NOT TO PREVENT ONE GETTING THE DISEASE, BUT TO MAKE IT AS ROUGH ON AMERICANS AS THE LEFT CAN BE. This entire bit of drama is making me sick to my stomach and I blame everyone who follows the mandate to wear a mask, stand 6 feet from others, do not attend church, etc….ALL OF THIS IS CRAP DOUBLED DOWN.

      4. Just heard today that besides high blood pressure generally from obese people another concept is beng studied. It appears much like the legionaires disease peope contained in a locked down conditon with air condition that the virous is spead by virtual of the air conditioning. Makes some sense when you consider you are basically breathing dead air not fresh air. Just a word to the wise get some fresh air in the house. What we may see is that when it cools enough that people quite using the air conditionwe will see a rapid drop off of infection.

  1. CNN is NOT a news station. They are anti Trump so they found doctors including fakey fauci to say it doesn’t work! President Trump needs to writ an executive order allowing Hydroxycloroquine to be used and screw billie gates vaccines or any others coming from big pharma.

    1. 100% and like these fake polls that CNN ha been putting out.these people ,MSN never amazes me with their bul crap.I just know vote Trump 2020 if these brain washed up racist Democrats get in there .you thing things are scary now you ain’t seen nothing they are the most evil people I have ever come across and I say this with my true belief .trust me they are already planning for this country to fail .I will vote all Democrats out and hope others do the same .we see what they are capable of doing and it’s not normal .the hate ,evil has already came out so know what it would be like and hell would be peace compared to what they would turn this country into.Trump 2020

      1. I agree with you, and must add that if the Democrats win this election, I will no longer fly the American Flag on my property. I’m a 100% disabled Veteran and will denounce anything that has to do with the Democrat party!
        It could be that the Chinese Flag, will be a ‘Mandatory’ thing if they win.
        Wake up America, even the Name these fools have for a ‘party name’ is a misnomer! They are far from anything Democratic!!

    1. Right you are Mike!! You may want to add Cuomo to that list Also. He is such a socialistic person who is trying to be a ‘ruler’, not a Governor ‘for the people’!

  2. What happened to March and Cuomo?? Why didn’t we get the program rolling in that direction (plasma treatments)?? Good for POTUS to keep bringing up good ideas to help preserve life, and too bad that the
    media still feels it has to spank him for all the good he does…..Can’t wait for Nov. 4th….so I can send the fools at CNN a box of Kleenex…they will need them!!!

  3. There’s always hope and President Trump has never and will never accept anything else. Of course the Dems and their press wouldn’t want anything to interrupt their constant bashing of Trump. The COVID19 Pandemic remaining is the only “hope” they’ve had. They care nothing about saving lives, unless it was under their iron fist of government. Thank-you President Trump for all that you & your administration do for us
    All Americans should see this a one of many positive steps President Trump has made as our President.

  4. This is a BIG step! The difference between life and death for many people.. So glad he made this announcement!!!! Trump 2020

  5. CNN (Communist News Network)
    All they want to do is destroy America and it’s Godly President
    I don’t believe a word they say
    It’s sad bc they used to be (long ago) a good news source

  6. Well, I guess the democrats are going to have to look for something new to use against Trump now. They will do anything to try and sway us from voting for him. It’s not working. And I heard Kamala say that Trump does not deserve to be President. You know what that means? She is against what WE THE PEOPLE did when we put Trump in office. She is saying that WE did wrong. She forgets it is US that chooses who the President will be. NOT her or any other politician. Trump 2020. Count on it.

  7. CNN is run by Trump haters. EVERYTHING Trump does is described disparagingly by CNN pundits. Forget that not yet FDA Approve therapies have NOT proven harmful but rather have MANY INSTANCES of beneficial results, these Trump haters are willing to deny even the ONLY reasonable hope for relief/cures to American citizens. It’s the ugliest side of political hate.

  8. Dems are called Dems for a reason. It struck me today that all young people of voting age from every Church should show up to vote. They can carry people to vote. They can also call the people they know from school or other friends who realize that the Democrats want to destroy our freedom of religion and democracy and government. A big nice surprise group to vote for Trump

    1. Still can‘t believe the mindset of the current Democrats ! I just cannot understand their level of HATE ! ITS IRRATIONAL ! Really don‘t remember that even HITLER getting so much backlash during WW2. And Trump and the Republicans are honestly trying to do what is best for our Country. I really don’t see this love for America coming from the Democrats! Be honest about this . . . . . . Another thought . . . . everything that the Democrats are doing to HURT Trump will just turn around and equally hurt the Democrats in the end. REMEMBER, you also live in America ! THINK ABOUT THAT ! ! ! !

  9. Jake the SNAKE. CNN is full of hatred and lies. The President seems to be the only positive hope for the Country’s trials. The Demoncrates don’t bring any positive hope or anything to the table to help us through these times. It is almost as if they enjoy the riots and this pandemic or whatever China has done? Their stupid convention never gave the American people any hope. Also what is Joe Biden and his homely son’s relationship with the Chinese? I said it before and I will say it again. Old man Joe looks like he can be part CHINESE! His eyes always look like they are squinty. Must show when he lies.

  10. GREAT JOB MR: pRESIDENT,
    MR PRESIDENT, PLEASE ORDER THAT DR FAUCI TO KEEP HIS NOSE
    OUT OF YOUR AFFAIRS, HE IS A TRAITOR AND A OBAMA BIDEN GUY…

  11. I understand AT&T owns CNN. If so, AT&T had better give serious
    consideration to replacing the entire editorial and reporting
    personnel at CNN the BOOT.
    Daigoro

  12. FAUCI NEEDS TO BR REMOVED …!!!! He has lost his professionalism in the political world . The FDA and Fauci have made some bad calls and poor judgement on numerous issues in the past , AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PEOPLE . He uses the science theory when he wants , and has ignored facts and studies. Check Fauci ‘s history out …such as Bactrim , which was effective for aides patients with pneumonia YRS AGO …and Fauci got his 2 cents into it , and aides patients were denied the use, and 15, 000 plus patients died . Hydroxychloroquine was effective with people that were otherwise healthy prior to getting the covid virus in foreign countries. google hydroxychloroquine …they also have quoted some crap. ANOTHER person that has been around for yrs is DR. FISCH , ( Yale university ) very interesting person . He has sent the FDA , and Fauci , studies and facts and they basically have shot him down , and recently they have some what bad mouthed him and other doctors . PEOPLE NEED TO START WRITING / EMAILING / CALLING our politicians and let them know your fed up with their way of doing things and their mentality at the expense of the people

  13. It wouldn’t matter if GOD himself said it works, as long as Trump is in office the damn idiots always negagive! Jake Tapper is an f…..g idiot along with Dr. Fauci and his minions. I beleive the front line Dr’s before them political idiots.

  14. This will be such a bitter pill for fake news to swallow. I would prefer this treatment along with the quinine to whatever the magic dust being pushed by big pharma is. Take two of these and watch for side effects. Take this and watch your liver dissolve. But wait there’s more.

  15. What’s the matter with Fauci? He has No $$$ invested in this treatment, so he is going to pan it like hydrochloroquine?
    CNN & the rest of the libs are all “demmy downers” and would condemn GOD if he came and performed miracles to eradicate the virus.

    1. BUT I read he has $$$ in the new stuff being worked on called requ…. something like that! He has invested $$$ in that. Thats why the push. He stole and screwed a DR working on the virus with dogs and cats. They carry it. Broke in took all her data and threaten her. Took it to another country and changed it a little and everyone died. The book is called Planned Pandemic. B&N were out and with all the BS going on no doubt it was told to dump it! Still trying. Saw the video interview with the DR, very interesting. And put 2&2 together. F face, piggy, b gate and it looked like e. john had a smiley face picture taken in china just before we were made aware of the virus. Dems, $$$$$, rich, all in china? Hey rats did it just get out of hand? That why piggy stayed in frisco? What was the term, they go they go higher, we go lower? Something like that, rats CANNOT GO ANY LOWER!

  16. All these companies that target Trump in the work place people pay attention they ALOUD BLM,TO BE WORN IN WORK PLACES AS SUPPORTING BLM BUT ARE TOLD NOTHING WITH TRUMP IS ALOUD .CHIC FA LA,GOODYEAR,TARGET,AMAZON, MANY MORE LOOK IT UP NO JOKE.SO GUESS WHAT I NO LONGER NEED ANYTHING FROM THEM I WILL NOT SPEND MY MONEY IN ANY PLACE THAT SUPPORTS BLM ITS A JOKE .I DONT AND WILL NEVER SUPPORT SUCH A RACIST GROUP OF PEOPLE.I HAVE LOST FRIENDS BECAUSE OF THIS CRAP .I TELL EVERYONE. IF YOU GOT TO PUT A COLOR IN FRONT OF LIVES MATTER THE PROBLEM IS WITH YOU I SAY ALL LIVES MATTER AND SO DOES GOD .HE DIED FOR ALL LIVES MATTER REMEMBER THIS.

  17. The last thing the Demonic lobotomy party of corrupt liars wants is for this virus to be solved. They have blood on their hands along with CHY-NA for letting it get out of control. When the dust settles Dems involved.
    It’s another sure way to destroy Trump so they can’t let this work.
    It’s great news and a great POTUS. Just wait morons in the media Trump is just getting started making America better than ever

  18. How can any sane person back the Dem’s–they are very evil and will support ANTIFA/BLM and all desacration of our country or beliefs to rid themselves of our president..they breed hatred..we need to pray for our Nation-Joe Biden is only a puppet of the far left communists within their party!!!

  19. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I find It really useful & it helped
    me out a lot. I hope to give something back
    and help others like you aided me.

  20. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.

    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
