Trump on His FDA Banning Vaping: ‘We Can’t Allow People To Get Sick’

‘The whole thing with vaping has been very profitable’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “Vaping has become a very big business, as I understand it, like a giant business in a very short period of time. But we can’t allow people to get sick and we can’t have our youth be so affected. That’s how the First Lady got involved. We’ve got a son together that is a beautiful young man and she feels very, very strongly about it. She’s seen it. We’re both reading it. A lot of people are reading it. But people are dying with vaping. So we’re looking at it very closely. You know, if nothing else, this is a conference that’s going to let people know about it because people will watch what we're saying and parents are going to be a lot tougher with respect to their children. A lot of people think vaping is wonderful, it's great. It’s really not wonderful. That's one thing I think we can say definitely, commissioner. It's not a wonderful thing. It’s got big problems. We have to find out the extent of the problem. It’s so new, but we’re going to find out. And I hope that parents who have children and their children are a certain age, I hope they’re going to be able to make wise decisions, maybe based on what we're saying today.”
