Dump Trump and his ‘magic cures’, says Lancet

The prestigious journal has taken the extraordinary step of lobbying for US President Donald Trump to be replaced

A leading medical journal is calling on Americans to dump US President Donald Trump in this year’s presidential elections, warning the coronavirus emergency won’t end until his “magic bullets” are replaced with proper public health measures.

In a scathing editorial, the Lancet takes aim at the Trump presidency for leaving the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as an “ineffective and nominal advisor” during the pandemic.
