I never said it provides protection against the virus. I stated there's clinical trials going where people are taking when they already have the virus. Mute point, as we all know, no one would be interested in Ivermectin if Trump hadn't had taken it.
I think you may be confused - I don't believe that Trump ever took Ivermectin.
He touted a *different* drug, hydroxychloroquine, as a potential prophylactic against, and cure for, COVID-19, but that is different from Ivermectin.
When Trump actually contracted COVID-19 and was hospitalised, he was given dexamethasone, Remdesivir, Regeneron's monoclonal antibody treatment, Famotidine, zinc, vitamin D, melatonin and Aspirin.
