Trump Moots Two Potential Steps To Reverse U.S. Death Rate Crisis

Sept. 11, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar, accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump, at a press conference today, announced that e-cigarettes with flavors other than tobacco would be banned from the U.S. market by approximately Nov. 15; and that tobacco-flavored e-cigarette makers would have to re-apply for FDA approval for their products. The President said, “Too many of our youth have been affected.... People are getting sick. People are dying.”

Moreover, on Sept. 9-10 several major media sources have reported that the Trump Administration, with active involvement from the President, is considering options to move the homeless in Los Angeles and other cities out of encampments and off the streets, and into some “Federal facilities,” no further defined. The Washington Post reported on this that White House, House and Urban Development (HUD) and HHS officials were in California this week meeting with state officials, with Trump asking for updates.

The Post quoted a White House statement: “ ‘Like many Americans, the President has taken notice of the homelessness crisis, particularly in cities and states where the liberal policies are combining to dramatically increase poverty and public health risks,’ said Judd Deere, a White House spokesman. ‘President Trump has directed his team to go further and develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.’
