President Trump reportedly halted plans to ban some e-cigarette flavors earlier this month due to fears of job losses.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that Trump abruptly backed off the proposed ban, which would have halted the sales of mint flavors as well as candy and fruit flavors, because he feared it could have a negative impact on his campaign as he sought to tout the economy.
The article goes on to state the following:
Trump, who had previously supported the ban reportedly on the urging of first lady Melania Trump and his daughter, White House adviser Ivanka Trump, refused to sign a decision memo ahead of a planned morning news conference on Nov. 4, according to the Post.
“He didn’t know much about the issue and was just doing it for Melania and Ivanka,” said a senior administration official, according to the Post.
A White House spokesperson refused to comment to the Post on the proposed ban or Trump’s reported reversal, adding that the administration was committed to protecting children’s health.
