The United States threatened Ecuador with trade penalties and military aid because Ecuador wanted to make breastfeeding easier.
This is actually a very serious issue. According to multiple scientific studies, mother’s milk is vital to infant’s development, universal breastfeeding will prevent 800,000 child deaths world wide each year, it will also save the world $300 billion in health care costs per year. But the Trump administration is strongly against it because they believe it will hurt the profits of American baby formula companies who are of course also their political donors. That’s how “pro life” these people truly are.
Once again, we learn that this “administration” is basically on the wrong side of every major issue both domestically and internationally, placates and serves dubious corporate interests at the expense of American citizens and their health, and is essentially opposed to any reform or law that doesn’t involve making things easier or more exclusive for fair-skinned conservative males.
No one is surprised what comes out of the *Orange House* anymore.
They want to stop it so hospitals get more money, to sell products, etc. It’s all a money game for them. Harm children to gain money. Makes sense in their eyes.
Shame all those good women of America breastfed and raised a bunch of greedy corporate puppets who now turn around and start to oppose breastfeeding. SAD.
Whoever said “there’s no crying over spilled milk”has clearly never been a breastfeeding mother. It’s freaking tragedy.
If only little Donny was breast fed instead of dropped on his head.
Okay if I overheard that formula conversation for real I would be calling child services before he got to “The Monitor”
WTF. Trump administration opposes everything good. I guess after all the harm they have done to exports the only thing that still sells is breast milk substitutions.
So where can I get some Similac? Asking for a friend
I thought republicans were conservatives, this is opposite of conservatism
Good to see Nestle’s lobbying money getting some real results. Who cares that babies are getting sick or dying because they drink formula made with contaminated water. Profits!!!
Trump: I don’t see what the problem is, my kids were raised on formula, and look how well they turned out!
Yes they r paid by nestle, one of the most evil companies in the world
Did he just go into his Reducto voice?
Maybe I’m too easily impressed but Stephens… *Fomula* accent made me chuckle for a whole God damn minute.
Breast is best. Baby milk is only for when you can’t or are struggling to produce enough.
“Maybe you shouldn’t call it… The formula.”
Well hello there, Reducto.
Trump and his support base are very anti-science. Its no surprise they support the administrations stance with regards to climate change and now breastfeeding.
