    Officials said the blowback to Trump's vow to ban most flavored e-cigarettes had rattled him. In an aggressive social media campaign—#IVapeIVote—advocates claimed the ban would shut down thousands of shops, eliminating jobs and sending vapers back to cigarettes. The president saw protesters at events and read critical articles. His campaign manager, Brad Parscale, privately warned the ban could hurt him in battleground states, said a person who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. Trump was now upset with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, who had taken the lead in rolling out the plan, said three officials familiar with the discussions.

    Good to hear Trump’s response to Alex Azar. That’s the appropriate response when someone comes up with such a ridiculous solution such as banning flavors after Trump learned the facts of the case. I’m glad to hear at least one person in the Oval Office has common sense. Just a bonus that he’s the one person that mattered the most as well.

    I watched some of the video of the meeting, and really Trump seemed to be actually listening to Greg Conley. Amazing!

    I’m hoping Trump will ignore the Bloomberg anti tobacco shills, but you never know.

    It’s crazy that all of these health organizations have come out against vaping, though. They must realize that it means they’re supporting smoking.
