You know what this headline doesn’t reveal? Under the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, food standards and consumer protections in the U.S. would have been lowered to the existing levels in Vietnam. I kid you not.
YOUR PRESIDENT saved you from that, by withdrawing the U.S. from the TPP. Say a prayer of gratitude, and one of protection. He actually DOES have your back. Via Crista Huff
Many aspects of your daily life, the sorts of activities and purchases you take for granted, are regulated by a single federal agency.
From the toothpaste you use to the lipstick you apply, the medicines you take to the food you eat, the Food and Drug Administration is supposed to stand between consumers and faulty products that could do them harm. It oversees $2.4 trillion of the U.S. economy—some 20 cents of every dollar Americans spend.
But in the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the FDA has shown signs of retreating from its mission.
The key here isn’t that the FDA is retreating from its mission. It’s that the FDA’s mission is minimized under President Trump.
Take heart dear ones. He’s got your back.
