Asbestos is Back! And its Donald Trump Approved

Russian asbestos company puts Trump’s face on product

A Russian asbestos company has branded their product with President Trump’s face.
Uralasbest, which operates a mine in the Ural Mountains, has stamped Trump’s image on pallets of asbestos with the words, “Approved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States,” The Guardian reported Wednesday.
The company posted a picture of pallets full of Trump stamps on its Facebook page last month with a caption that said, “Donald is on our side.”
“He supported the head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, who stated that his agency would no longer deal with negative effects potentially derived from products containing asbestos. Donald Trump supported a specialist and called asbestos ‘100% safe after application,'” it said, according to a translation from the Environmental Working Group.
Pruitt stepped down from the federal regulatory agency last week following a rash of scandals, but not before the EPA decided not to ban “new uses” of asbestos products.

(What's the royalty on your image in Russia paying you Donald?)
