White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien claimed this week that President Donald Trump works up to 18 hours a day while taking hydroxychloroquine.
During an interview on CBS, host Margaret Brennan asked O’Brien if Trump had created a national security risk by taking the unproven drug despite having a heart condition.
“Is there a national security risk for the commander-in-chief to be taking a medication that the FDA warns the public that there is risk of having heart problem?” Brennan asked.
O’Brien insisted that Trump is taking the drug “in close consultation with his physician.”
“I think the president is under great medical care,” O’Brien said. “And I think he’s doing the right thing that he and his physician believe is good for the president.”
“I’m not concerned about his health,” he added. “The guy has got more energy than anyone I’ve ever seen. He works 16, 18 hours a day. So I don’t see any change in his strong performance as a result of whatever health regiment he’s under.”

Trump attacks: Only reason ‘they’ don’t want to let schools re-open is to hurt my re-election chances
President Donald Trump appears to be attacking Democrats, or the large number of parents across the country who are afraid to send their children back to school in the fall over concerns students could contract the coronavirus and get sick or die, or spread it to their families, friends, and teachers.
"Politics," according to the President, is the only reason "they" don't want to allow their children to go back to school.
In a rambling address at the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, the President talked about "allowing those at lower risk such as young, and healthy – children in many cases the immune system is so powerful, so strong – but the young and the healthy to safely return to work and to school."

Downtown Disney District -- which borders the world-famous Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks near Los Angeles -- is the first part of the sprawling resort to reopen.

Texas GOP sues Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner over canceled in-person convention
The gathering, which was estimated to draw around 6,000 people, was set to happen next week in Houston.
The Republican Party of Texas is suing Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and others involved with the canceling of the party's in-person convention, which was scheduled to happen next week.
On Wednesday, Houston First Corporation, the operator of the George R. Brown Convention Center, sent a letter to party officials informing them that the event had been canceled. That cancelation happened after Turner announced he was directing the city's legal department to work with Houston First to review the contract for the event.
