President Trump said Wednesday it is important to speed monoclonal antibodies and other drug therapies to hospitals to help people overcome the coronavirus, saying it helped him rebound from infection.
“I wasn’t feeling so hot, and within a very short period of time, they gave me Regeneron. And other things too, but I think this was the key. But they gave me Regeneron and it was like unbelievable, I felt good immediately,” he said in a five-minute video from outside the West Wing.
