President Trump’s controversial New York Times report said that the U.S. “strongly supports breastfeeding.”
President Trump on Monday blasted the “failing-New York Times” for reporting, to demand that its government against a pro-breast-feeding measure, at the U. N.-linked World Health Assembly, the problem is the resolution of the limits on the promotion of the formula.
“The faulty NY Times Fake news story to be called today about breastfeeding. The United States strongly supports breastfeeding, but we do not believe that a woman should be denied access formula. Many women need this option because of the malnutrition and poverty,” Trump tweeted on Monday.

The President of the tweet was a direct response to an article published by The New York Times on Sunday under the title “U.S. Opposition to the silent resolution, Stunned officials of world health.”
The resolution was sought by Ecuador to the world health Assembly in Geneva in may and the U.S. delegation reportedly, the water below the measure through the removal of language calling on governments to “protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding,” to limit, together with a section reference to the policy, the promotion of food, which could have a negative impact on young children, according to the times.
The Times reported that the US delegation threatened other Nations, suggesting that the US would punish, to implement trade policy measures with the aim of more than a dozen participants from various countries present.
A spokesman for the Department of health and Human Services, an E-Mail to the times, defended the administration’s attitude.
“The resolution as originally drafted placed unnecessary hurdles for mothers in search of food for their children,” an HHS spokesman said in an E-Mail to the times. “We don’t recognize all of the women are able to breastfeed, for a variety of reasons. These women should have the choice and access to alternatives for the health of their babies, and not stigmatized will do for the way you are able to do this.”
