Trump Changes Tone About Vape Flavor Ban

Donald Trump has expressed concerns over enacting his administration’s proposed ban of e-cigs.

Reuters reports that Trump is now claiming it would lead to people obtaining them illegally.

U.S. vaping-related respiratory illness has sickened more than 2,000 people and killed 47.

E-cigarette executives claim a ban on the products could lead to a loss of at least 100,000 jobs.

Wimmer told Trump that his stance was what Trump had announced in September.

More than 27.5% of American high school students use e-cigarettes, up from 20.7% in 2018.
