During an Oval Office meeting on e-cigarettes, President Trump said his administration is moving to ban all non-tobacco flavored vaping products.
President Trump summoned reporters Wednesday to the Oval Office for a meeting on e-cigarettes that wasn’t on his public schedule, saying he wants parents to know his administration is carefully reviewing e-cigarettes. The products have been linked to a growing number of lung-related diseases and deaths recently.
“We may very well have to do something very, very strong about it,” the president told reporters. “We can’t allow people to get sick,” he said. “People are dying.” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar elaborated on plans for the FDA to develop guidelines to remove all e-cigarette flavors except plain tobacco from the market.
