Anti-Vaxxer Trump Now Telling People To Get Vaccinated For Measles
President Donald Trump, who falsely claimed for years there was a link between vaccinations and autism, is now telling people to get vaccinated for measles, which doctors have recommended since 1963.
On April 26, Trump addressed measles outbreaks in various parts of the country, notes Stat News: “They have to get the shots. The vaccinations are so important.This is really going around now. They have to get their shots.”
This is the first time Trump has addressed vaccinations as president, contradicting his former false claims that he made with no evidence:
Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn't feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2014
