“Will be meeting with representatives of the Vaping industry, together with medical professionals and individual state representatives, to come up with an acceptable solution to the Vaping and E-cigarette dilemma. Children’s health & safety, together with jobs, will be a focus!” the president tweeted on Monday morning.

In September, the Trump administration announced that it was working on a policy that would ban the sale of all non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes, including menthol.
However, amid intense pushback from vapers (and some conservatives circulating data about how such a ban might impact him in the 2020 election), it was reported that the administration was considering a flavor ban that would not include menthol.
A few days ago, the president told reporters that his administration planned to raise the age to legally buy vaping products to 21 and that some announcement regarding the administration’s stance on vaping would come out this week.
However, as CNBC notes, the FDA does not have the authority to raise the smoking age.
