The White House claimed the press “took out of context” the Trump’s words  on disinfectant use. "President Trump has repeatedly said that Americans should consult with medical doctors regarding coronavirus treatment, a point that he emphasized again during yesterday's briefing," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said. "Leave it to the media to irresponsibly take President Trump out of context and run with negative headlines. "Leave it to the media to irresponsibly take President Trump out of context and run with negative headlines," as ABC News reported.
