President Donald Trump vowed to bring an end to America’s HIV/AIDS epidemic during a campaign speech in Cincinnati, reported the Cincinnati Enquirer.
During the speech given on Thursday night (August 1) at the Bank Arena, Trump contended that “new breakthroughs in science and medicine” will bring an end to both the AIDS epidemic and childhood cancer.
“The things we’re doing in our country today, there’s never been anything like it,” he said. “We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America and curing childhood cancer very shortly.”
Trump started campaigning for re-election in June on the promise to “come up with the cures to many, many problems to many, many diseases including cancers and others. And we’re getting closer all the time.”
