U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson has attributed his successful recovery from the coronavirus to the actions of President Donald Trump.
In a stunning Facebook post published on his and his wife Candy’s joint Facebook page Friday, Carson revealed that after he was diagnosed with the coronavirus earlier this month, he “became desperately ill” because of “several co-morbidities.”
What led to his survival, he added, was the president’s decision to “clear” him for receiving Regeneron’s experimental antibody treatment.
“I was extremely sick and initially took Oleander 4X with dramatic improvement. However, I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill,” he wrote.
“President Trump was following my condition and cleared me for the monoclonal antibody therapy that he had previously received, which I am convinced saved my life.”
As a result, he’s now “out of the woods.”

Thank you everyone for your support and prayers as Candy and I battled COVID-19. I was extremely sick and initially took…
The president used the experimental treatment himself after he contracted the virus last month. After making a full recovery, he announced that he was “trying to get [it] on an emergency basis” so that all Americans can benefit from the drug.
A month later, the drug still remains unauthorized. While the reasons for the delay remain unclear, some far-left media outlets have attacked the experimental treatment and claimed it’s “not a Covid-19 ‘cure.'”
Continuing his Facebook post, Carson begged those with power and influence to stop politicizing the coronavirus crisis.
“I am hopeful that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people. While I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am convinced it saved my life), we must prioritize getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible,” he wrote.
“There are a number of promising treatments that need to be tested, approved, and distributed (sooner rather than later) so that the economy can be re-opened and we can all return to a semblance of normalcy.”
He also took aim at the Democrat political leaders and left-wing media figures who’ve fear-mongered over an upcoming coronavirus vaccine.

“Also, people should recognize that there are a number of defined steps that legally have to be taken before vaccines are released to the public and trying to cause alarm by saying dangerous shortcuts were taken only serves to stoke fear. Together we will be victorious. God is still in charge,” he wrote.
Carson was diagnosed with the coronavirus on the morning of Nov. 9th. Roughly 10 days later, reports emerged that he’d been advised by MyPillow founder Mike Lindell to take oleander extract, an herbal supplement, for his symptoms.
“Oleander is used for heart problems, cancer, skin problems, and other conditions. But there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses,” WebMD notes.
There have been claims, though.
“Anybody who has ever gotten COVID and taken it, they are fine in five hours, and the next day are running around playing floor hockey in the hallway,” Lindell has reportedly alleged.
After taking the extract, Carson reportedly felt better.
“Carson said he took the extract, which has not been approved for such purposes by the FDA and which experts say may be dangerous, and within hours his symptoms disappeared — to the delight of Lindell,” The Washington Post reported on Thursday.
But as Carson explained in his Facebook post, his symptoms quickly returned.
The HUD secretary’s announcement came on the same day that news broke that the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., had tested positive for the virus earlier in the week but was faring just fine.

“Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result. He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines,” his spokesperson told Fox News on Friday.
The announcement provoked celebration from unhinged leftists who were thrilled by the unlikely prospect of Trump Jr. dying.
Conversely, it’s presumed Carson’s announcement — that he’s effectively recovered from the virus thanks to the president’s help — will trigger enthusiastic disappointment once it spreads on social media.
