In an “Agenda47” video for his presidential campaign, former President Donald Trump pledged to tackle the significant increase in chronic illnesses and health issues, specifically among children.
The former President highlighted what he called a “stunning rise in autism, auto-immune disorders, obesity, infertility, serious allergies, and respiratory challenges.”
“Is it the food that they eat? The environment that we live in?” The over-prescription of certain medications? Is it the toxins and chemicals that are present in our homes?” he asked.
Trump promised to establish a special presidential commission of “independent minds who are not bought and paid for by Big Pharma.”
“I will charge them with investigating what is causing the decades-long increase in chronic illnesses,” Trump said.
Trump then stated he would ask them to publish recommendations for “how every American child can have a safe and healthy childhood.”
Trump accused the public health establishment of being “too close to Big Pharma.”
“If the nation’s pharmaceutical industry is defrauding Americans and taxpayers or putting profits over people, they must be investigated and held accountable,” he said.
Trump ended the announcement stating that Americans need “a President who can do something about this problem and I will do that.”
