It's the first time the FDA, which regulates the nation's drugs and food, has declared any substance a carcinogen.
Regulators said they would demand the GOP presumptive presidential nominee to label himself as a cancer-causing agent. The FDA, however, is still arguing internally about the label's wording like whether to demand Trump call himself a "cancer' or "cancerous," according to at least seven FDA sources familiar with the labeling who spoke with TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly speak about the new labeling requirements.
But unlike FDA-warnings on cigarette packaging, which caution smokers that smoking "may" be hazardous to one's health, FDA regulators have agreed in principle that Trump "is" hazardous to the nation's health.
"He is clearly a hazard and we are examining whether Trump is imperiling the United States or the world at large," FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview. "We had always considered him a 'disease' but a closer examination revealed that he was a carcinogen."
Califf said the agency would conclude by November 8 how big the cancer menace is.
