President Trump says the Food and Drug Administration is poised to remove flavored e-cigarettes from the market. Trump made the announcement in an Oval Office meeting Wednesday morning with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.
President Donald Trump: “We can’t allow people to get sick, and we can’t have our youth be so affected. And I’m hearing it, and that’s how the first lady got involved. And she’s 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.”
The FDA’s decision to ban flavored e-cigarettes comes after a sixth person died in the U.S. from a mysterious lung disease tied to vaping.
