Donald and Melania Trump

President Trump says he wants to stamp out HIV, the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Trump will announce his plan to wipe out HIV by 2030 during his State of the Union Address to the nation tonight.

Before Trump ran for President, he generously donated to AIDS research, and he and his wife Melania attended Elton John AIDS Foundation galas.

On Tuesday night, President Trump will pledge to end the HIV epidemic in America, according to a report on Politico.com website.

But health experts say if the President is serious about ending the HIV epidemic, he should treat transgenders and immigrants better.

Saying Trump's announcement would be a "pleasant surprise," health expert Lucy Bradley-Springer told Buzzfeed that Trump "would be an unlikely messenger for ending the stigma toward people with HIV."

Bradley-Springer was one of six experts who resigned from the presidential advisory committee on HIV policy before it was disbanded by Trump. They wrote a scathing letter saying Trump's policies harmed people with HIV and AIDS.

About 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV, and every year another 40,000 people are infected. Men who have sex with men (MSM), Black women, and immigrants are among the highest risk categories to contract HIV.

"Many immigrants are afraid to access HIV prevention and medical care, out of fear of deportation," noted a report from AIDS United. "These barriers have the potential to drive dramatic increases in new HIV cases among Latinx gay and bisexual foreign-born men."

    He couldn't even bully little ol Mexico into paying for his wall. And that was one of his biggest lies. Er, promises. And he was supposed to defeat ISIS. STILL waiting on that one.
    Now he thinks he can somehow wipe out HIV. Is this the same guy who tried to take away people's healthcare? I'm gonna need cliff notes tomorrow because I won't be watching his lying ass on my tv tonight.

    What in the heyl?? No one can END an epidemic like this. If people want to have unprotected sexual contact without using protection how can you stop them? How sway.

  • Soda

    He'll probably have anyone who's infected deported to one of those new islands that have popped up.

  • DroneRivers

  • Lucky8

    45 said we would get trump care cards for medical purposes and that he would show his compromised taxes. Take both of those and this with a grain of salt.

  • Navybeans95

  • Kimberly King

    I mean .... they BEEN found a cure for that damn disease. But the health industry is a big business. If people ain’t sick, they’re not making no money. Hence why they’re putting cancer in the food now.

  • R in NYC

    Exactly...there's more money in the treatment than the cure.

  • 11pink123

    There is already a cure for Aids, the FDA has not approved it yet.. They are still testing it.. He is not making a blank promise, the cure is already here, it’s a fight to get the FDA to approve it..

  • Yoni7

    I started out watching Castaway. Then I flipped it and started watching that ole throwback show....... "Inside Of My Eyelids". #zzzzzzzzzz

  • Yoni7

    It's already a cure. Always has been one. But since folks ain't handing out the cure for the common cold, we will NEVER see the cure for HIV/AIDS!
