oh right, Russia is by far the largest producer of asbestos

Quote:
A Russian asbestos company that operates a giant mine in the Ural Mountains is marketing its wares with President Trump’s image, according to photos it posted on social media, citing former EPA administrator Scott Pruitt as well as Trump’s outspoken support for the carcinogen.

Great news for the asbestos mining Soviet Canukistani comrades under the brave leadership of Justin Trudeau.

Sugar's attempt at "fake news" trolling.

EPA did nothing of the sort.

Trump administration has changed absolutely nothing with respect to asbestos.

Even this article says nothing of the sort.

Obviously, sugar posted this absurd, completely unsubstantiated lie because he's racist.

Of course not.

Its use is restricted in the United States, though it has never been outright banned, as it has been in at least 60 other countries.
Can't "unban" something that was never banned, right? ;-)
Quote:
But Trump has long expressed skepticism about its potential health effects after it is applied.
So I daresay he won't mind anyway? :lol:
(Maybe he should read up on why asbestos is dangerous...)

To be accurate, what it should say is, "... 20 years ago, Trump expressed skepticism..."

Or to be even more accurate ... "... every other thought, Trump expressed skepticism..." :lol:

The man (yes I use that term loosely) is a master of flip-flop.

on what issues? here he is in 19fucking88 saying the same shit he's saying now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEPs17_AkTI while oprah and the audience eat it up.

here he is expressly disavowing white supremacists repeatedly over 25 years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuwFa0c-GnM

if anything, he's one of the most consistent people to hold office in modern history. you might not like him, and that's fine. but if you don't know about this, or think otherwise from what is literally on video, you are watching fake news.
