Trump Supporter: "No Vaccines"

In The Politics of Autism, I discuss the issue's role in presidential campaigns.   In this campaign, a number of posts have discussed Trump's support for the discredited notion that vaccines cause autism.  He also has a bad record on disability issues more generally.'

At Mediaite, Ken Meyer reports that a Trump supporter gave an odd reason for backing him: “Veterans care. No vaccines…”
It is likely that Judy is referencing a strange position Trump has taken in the past about how vaccinations are connected to autism. Trump has defended his old stance during the 2016 election, even though nowalmost the entire medical community has concluded that its not just unproven but simply untrue.
