Trump Vows To Cure Childhood Cancer And AIDS 'Very Shortly'
Trumps set tone at rally in Ohio in front of thousands of supporters
President Donald Trump promised he would cure AIDS and childhood cancer "very soon" during a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio.
"We will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine," the president said.
"I see what they are doing. I see it. They show me. The things we are doing in our country today."
"There's never been anything like it. We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America, and curing childhood cancer very shortly."
Trump promised a similar thing in June campaign kickoff when he vowed to "come up with the cures to many, many problems, too many, many diseases including cancer and others. And we're getting closer all the time."
The remarks also echo 2020 hopeful Joe Biden recent promises.
"I promise you if I'm elected president, you're going to see the single most important thing that changes America," Biden announced.
"We're gonna cure cancer."
But the rally did not see any chants of “Send her back” this time.
But according to The Hill: After Trump mentioned 2016 rival Hillary Clinton, the crowd broke into a chant of "lock her up."

Trump mentioned his former opponent and her use of the term "deplorable" to describe a segment of Trump supporters.
"Do you remember when Hillary used the word 'deplorable'?" he said. "Deplorable was not a good day for Hillary. Crooked Hillary. She is a crooked one," he said.
After this, the crowd began to chant "lock her up," a refrain that supporters of the president commonly used during the 2016 election.
“While Republicans are working every day to build up our country, the rage-filled Democrat Party is trying to tear America apart. The Democrat Party is now being led by four left-wing extremists who reject everything that we hold dear,” Trump told the crowd in Ohio.
“No one has paid a higher price for the far-left’s destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities,” he said.
Trump attacked Democrats’ performance in inner cities, but he did not name Elijah Cummings, a black U.S. congressman from Baltimore and civil rights champion, whom Trump has also recently criticized.
