Trump Backs Vaccine Safety, Calls Other Candidates “Bought”


A recent interview further highlights why Autism Investigated endorses Donald Trump for President. On April 3rd, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson sat down with the Republican presidential front-runner. In that interview, he said,”there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism” and that “we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.” He also said the other candidates are “controlled by special interests” and “bought off with campaign contributions.” As of March 21st, pharmaceutical manufacturers have given $215,477 to Hillary Clinton, $64,175 to Bernie Sanders, $63,018 to Ted Cruz, $7,625 to John Kasich despite being dead last and a measly $531 to Donald Trump.

Trump on Vaccines and Viewer Questions

Trump fielded a number of viewer questions during “Full Measure’s” Sunday sit-down. He was asked about his views on vaccinations, advice he gave to his children, advice he ignored from his children, mis-characterizations from the media and, simply, why he would make the best choice for president.

What’s your position on freedom of choice regarding various vaccines that could be dangerous for some children and why is the mere discussion of making vaccines safe censored?

“It’s the most unbelievable discussion I’ve ever been involved in. If you say anything about vaccines that is slightly like holding back the hate mail, the level of vitriol, it’s incredible when you see it. First of all, I’m a big believer in vaccines. But there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism. There could be something to it. Now some people say no, some people say yes, I’d like to see studies. The bottom line is they have to get vaccinated. When I was going to school as a young guy, polio was a really big problem and vaccines knocked it out. So the vaccines are very important, but we have to study the vaccines and we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.”

What’s some of the most important advice you’ve given your kids?

“That’s an easy question. No alcohol. No drugs. No cigarettes.”

Is there advice you’ve been given sometime that you wish you would’ve taken that you didn’t take?

“Well, Ivanka [my daughter] and my wife Melania will say ‘now be presidential,’ because sometimes I’ll hit back very hard and it doesn’t sound presidential. But my retort to that is, if I didn’t, you know I started off with [17 Republican challengers] and we have two left. I have two left. And frankly, if I didn’t hit hard I think you’d be interviewing probably somebody else.”

What mis-characterizations has the media saddled you with?

“I think I’m a very nice person. I love people. I like to help people. And I think the media makes me look like a mean person. And I think I’m a nice person. I love people. I love to help people.”

Why do you think you should be elected president?

“Because I can do the best job. I’m the only one that will make America great again. I know the other candidates. They’ll never bring us to the promise land. They’ll never make great trade deals. They’ll never great with the military. They’re controlled by special interests. I’m not. Again, I’m not taking money from anybody. If I don’t win. I really see a lot of problems for the country. There’s some many problems for the country that a politician, number one, can’t solve, and number two, won’t solve because they’re bought off with campaign contributions.”

Contrast the above to what other candidates have said about vaccines, like what Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton ($215,477 from pharma) tweeted:

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let’s protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest 

Ted Cruz ($63,018 from pharma), Trump’s main primary rival, told USA Today:

Of course children should be vaccinated, this issue is largely silliness stirred up by the media.

John Kasich ($7,625 from pharma) told Ohio’s Dayton Daily News:

You have to get vaccinated. This is not a choice. Are you kidding me?

The socialist and far-left extremist Bernie Sanders ($64,175 from pharma) who’s entire platform is more intrusive government like the corrupt vaccine program is the worst candidate of them all. In fact, he is the only candidate who actually criticized Trump for his stance on vaccines in an MSNBC interview with Rachel Maddow following the September GOP debate:

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen.

Yet Age of Autism’s managing editor was dumb enough to describe Sanders as “a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he openly supports censoring discussion of vaccine dangers. AoA has also praised Hillary’s “autism plan” with the vaccine debate-censoring Huffington Post and even expressed a desire to work with her. Worst of all, AoA has trashed Trump – repeatedly. They are guilty of continuously misinforming their readers about where the candidates stand on this issue, even though the right choice in this presidential race is more obvious than ever. If the issue of vaccine safety is an important enough issue to make or break a vote for any particular candidate, then the only candidate who deserves the vote is Donald Trump.

23 Thoughts on “Trump Backs Vaccine Safety, Calls Other Candidates “Bought”

  1. Eddie Unwind on April 7, 2016 at 4:07 am said:

    What Trump advocates here is in fact something entirely reasonable. However, he and others of this moderate standpoint are up against an underlying philosophical prejudice which states that ‘this subject cannot be sufficiently simplified for general debate’.

    The root of this apparent prejudice derives from a positivist viewpoint, highlighted in a passage by Bertrand Russell whereupon he writes that he enjoys the taste of an apricot all the more (more than the less-educated, in other words) in understanding the etymology of the term ‘apricot’, which stems from ‘pre’=’precursor’, hence, ‘to ripen early’ etc. For him, not knowing this translates to having less insight, therefore less pleasure in eating an apricot.

    Exactly the same thinking occurs with Richard Feynman, who insisted that the natural world cannot be experienced to the full without sufficient mathematical training.

    This is the underlying belief of the pro-vaccine argument. Ultimately, each will have to decide for themselves as to the degree of truth contained within such a perspective.

    Big Pharma, the American Medical Association is the controlling Medical Mafia in America. Bill Gates and The, are behind the “forced vaccine bills in Congress and State Legislatures”. Why? Bill Gates is an athesist with with a zero population agenda and wants to secure a trillion dollar industry for the Medical Professionals and Big Pharma in shared profits.
    Ethics and disciplinary actions have been taken against the and Bill Gates is loosing in vaccine damage courts, globally. 49 thousand paralyzed children in India from the Sulk Vaccine and Gardasil deaths and impairments. Gardasil is a known killer. Merck does not care….it is about the $$$$ not good health. Merck began with Hitler and came to the USA after serving time in prison to begin the vaccine industry after human experiments in Nazi Concentration Camps.
    The Health Oversight and Reform Committee in Congress is asking many questions to find out that the CDC has lied and covered up links to Autism. No studies have ever been done on the effects of aluminum and in vaccines, a known neurotoxin. No studies for multiple vaccines given at once. Or the effects of the live virus flu shot on pregnant mothers.
    80% of all vaccines are made in China, Philippines, and Taiwan without quality controls, storage, and shipping conditions. Huge damages are being paid because of a high degree of errors.
    Are vaccines safe and effective? And, do they prevent the diseases or stop outbreaks? I grew up without vaccines. Nobody died, nobody became impaired, sterile or blind or paralyzed. Some of my siblings got the childhood diseases and some did not. This is true natural immunity.
    Both President Bush es signed into law that not all ingredients need to be listed in vaccines when it was discovered the peanut proteins were killing our infants, toddlers, and children. And to protect themselves from vaccine damages. Why? Because they both set on the Merck Board. Ronald Reagan gave vaccine manufacturers a liability exemption. Shame on em!

      You pretty much encapsulated it. I don’t gravitate to conspiracy theories. They’re a short cut to polarizing an issue. In reading ‘Dissolving Illusions’ by Suzanne Humphries, MD it becomes apparent that the credit given to vaccines for saving us from Polio, Measles, Diptheria, Pertussis is dubious. When you see the graphs and charts indicating these diseases diminishing to negligible numbers PRIOR to the introduction of each of the vaccines associated and the recurrence of them associated with forced immunization programs, the continuance of these diseases until present day when vaccinated immunity was supposed to protect for a lifetime… well, the devil is in the details.

  6. There is not one vaccine that is safe. Vaccines cannot be made to be safe because in order to work at all, they have to cause damage to the body. Vaccines do NOT create herd immunity, are not safe, actually cause diseases, cause children to be carriers, and are damaging the immune system greatly! A mother breast feeding their infant for 2 years prevents that child from getting most of the infectious diseases, like measles, chickenpox, etc. Autism and all the neuro degenerative diseases are epidemic now and drug companies and doctors are exempt from being sued when the cause vaccine damage due to the National Vaccine Act of 1986! This has to stop. Thank you Mr Trump for standing up to this heinous attack on Americans by drug companies!

  7. In July 2004, Gary Null Ph.D, Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D, Martin Feldman M.D., Debora Rasio M.D., Dorothy Smith Ph.D. wrote a paper that revealed very disturbing facts regarding an annual iatrogenic (induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures) death rate of 783,936 in one year. It is further disturbing to realize that as few as 5 percent and only up to 20 percent of iatrogenic acts are ever reported. This means that iatrogenic death rate of 783,936 is much higher.

    As we look at the causes of death from degenerative diseases and other causes in America in 2004, it is obvious we are not good at solving this problem on any level. Deaths from: Heart Disease 652,000, Cancer 553,000, and Stroke 150,000.

    When comparing the iatrogenic acts of modern medicine in America with the statistical numbers of people dying of any particular disease, it is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. And when we look at the cost of these iatrogenic deaths, the cost is in the billions.

    A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.

    So you are much more safe in a war zone than in a hospital in America!

    I think the extremely well researched film called “VAXXED” will answer everyones questions. Lets stop guessing… and go to the facts please. Big Pharma does not want folks to see this film… because it has the testimonies, scientific facts and the proof to prove today’s vaccines are toxic. Like with asbestos and smoking there is first denial, then reluctance, then acceptance of the truth… and the truth is that vaccines are harming and injuring our children. Do the research. Here’s a start… some good books on the subject of vaccines and their effect on children… and the film info at …

      I knew all about Vaxxed prior to seeing the movie, through YouTube and other sources. Rather than answering all the questions, it opened up many more. It barely scrapes the iceberg of historical reference and the legacy of forced immunization. I’d wondered about the assumed and oft-stated knee jerk acceptance that vaccines cured polio, measles, diptheria, pertussis, etc. ‘WHAT ABOUT POLIO??’ is the response ingrained in our collective mind. Read ‘Dissolving Illusions’ by Suzanne Humphries, MD for a detailed history of immunization from the 17th century. The Polio section is particularly complex and bears no resemblance to the grand success story we’re all led to believe. I’m discouraged that this history will never come to light. The vitriol I witness against anyone that questions the safety and efficacy of vaccines is frightening. Any pharmaceutical that comes to market has to go through so much more rigorous testing, advertisements requiring disclaimers and such. But, when it comes to vaccines, we NEVER question their safety/efficacy. A shocking level of ignorance and denial.

    Also Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is campaigning AGAINST these toxic vaccines… see video here…
