After Elon Musk tweeted this on March 16, Google searches to buy the drug dramatically spiked.

Musk and Trump’s hype led to a surge of interest in online sales for an unproven and potentially dangerous drug, a study in a prestigious journal warned today.  http://www.courthousenews.com/trump-hype-on-anti-malaria-drug-stoked-searches-for-online-sales/
