Donald Trump backs Vaccines amid Measles Outbreak, drops previous Autism claims

Trump asks parents to get their kids vaccinated amid a measles outbreak, a contrast with previous comments referencing a debunked theory that the shots can cause autism. ’They have to get their shots. This is really going around now,’ Trump said Friday. His comments come amid the first measles outbreak in decades as Nearly 700 cases have been confirmed by federal health officials as of this week.

Does anybody here believe that vaccines cause autism? (I am not saying I believe so, I don't. I am asking if there are people on this app that believe so)

Daily reminder to anti-vaxxers: you don't know what you're talking about.

I think it ought to be mandatory or else have the kids taken away from them. If vaccinations were do dangerous why don't all the parents have autism? Though you could make a case that they're brain damaged.

Hilarious when the highest reported numbers put the infected at 64% unvaccinated OR unknown state of vaccination in the infected population. Furthermore the infections have ALL been traced to foreign countries. This means nearly half the infected individuals were either vaccinated previously to contracting the virus or their immunization status could not be verified. The number of individuals in this outbreak consist of large groups of vaccinated individuals. This type of fear mongering to mandate the injection of foreign substances into the citizens is so obvious. Yet we see so many ill informed people fanatically motivated by fear to remove basic rights. Don't let fear cloud your ability to assess the threat and weigh the solutions in a logical way.

I'm glad he's finally able to come around on this issue. It only took him until the number of measles cases was higher in 4 months than the whole year when we said it had been wiped out... Just a reminder that the reason it took so long is that Trump was seemingly up til now an Anti-vaxxer http://www.trumptwitterarchive.com/highlights/vaccines I'm glad he changed his mind though. Maybe some of the people who voted for him because he was an open antivaxxer will listen to him.

All of these right wingers on this app just went from talking shit on vaccines last week. To now saying that the left won’t vaccinate now because of TDS. Pathetic.

Kids are getting autism because we import food grown on polluted land in China. It’s probably completely loaded with mercury.

Since the vast majority of anti-vaxxers (as well as flat-earthers) are on the far left... and this request came from Trump himself... I'm sincerely concerned about the children of these nitwits.
