Ohio state Representative Tavia Galonski (D) announced on Sunday via her Twitter account that because President Trump continued to promote Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus, she'll be referring him to the International Court of Justice for crimes against humanity.

Galonski said Sunday's "press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one."

Hydroxychloroquine is normally used to treat patients with malaria and sometimes lupus and arthritis, but it has shown some promising results for patients with COVID-19. Because of early results in some patients with the novel virus, Trump has been a heavy promoter of the drug.

MSNBC contributor Glenn Kirschner, who has previously said Trump could be charged with manslaughter, agreed with Galonski's tweet, saying, "Trump’s conduct easily satisfies all 3 elements of involuntary manslaughter."
