It could well be both, but I think it's mainly to please his base.

Here are some interesting data:

The FDA announcement was expected, as both drugmakers have said for weeks that the treatments are less able to target omicron because of its mutations. In updated drug labeling released Monday, the FDA said omicron appears 1,000-fold less vulnerable to Regeneron’s drug and nearly 3,000-fold less vulnerable to Lilly’s drug.

Give 'em ivermectin, Ronnie. It's cheaper and it probably works as well as those antibodies.

Could not answer because it wasn’t there. He’s heavily invested in stock in monoclonal antibodies.
