It is now obvious that Trump’s insistence on the as yet unproven application of hydroxychloroquine to COVID-19 is a political campaign tactic related to the 2018 passage of “Right to Try” laws

Right to try legislation gives terminally ill patients the right to use experimental medications that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

President Trump’s push for the passage of right to try nationally builds on the efforts of the libertarian-leaning Goldwater Institute, which has used the broad popularity of the policy to help achieve passage of similar legislation in 38 states, although the state legislation differs substantially from the version now on the president’s table.
