Donald Trump has moved to ban flavours used in e-cigarettes following a series of deaths linked to vaping. Across the United States six people have died and more than 450 have fallen ill in recent months, with symptoms including breathing difficulty and chest pain.

Several teenagers have been placed in medically induced comas. No single vaping device, ingredient or additive has been identified as the cause.

Mr Trump said: “Vaping has become very big business, giant, in a short period of time. We can’t have our youth be so affected. People are dying from vaping so were looking at it very closely. People are going to watch what we’re saying and parents are going to be a lot tougher with respect to their children.”

He added: “People say vaping is wonderful. It’s really not wonderful, that’s one thing we can say definitely. We may well have to do something strong about it.”

Mr Trump said his wife Melania, the first lady, had been involved in discussions about vaping because “she’s got a son, she feels very strongly about it.”
