India lifted its export ban on hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump threatened retaliation against the country, Business Insider reported. 

India put a partial ban on the drug, touted March 25 by President Trump as a "game changer" in the U.S. response to COVID-19, to maintain an adequate supply for its own citizens. 

The country put a total ban on exports on April 4, and in an April 6 news briefing, President Trump said he disagreed with the ban and threatened unspecified "retaliation" against India if it didn't lift the ban, Business Insider reported.
