Asbestos sold by Russian company is branded with Trump's image

Source: Portland Press Herald

A Russian asbestos company that operates a giant mine in the Ural Mountains is marketing its wares with President Trumpís image, according to photos it posted on social media, citing former EPA administrator Scott Pruitt as well as Trumpís outspoken support for the carcinogen.

The company Uralasbest posted photos of the pallets adorned with a seal with Trumpís face in the center on its Facebook page in June.

ďApproved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States,Ē the seal read, according to a translation supplied by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit focused on human health and the environment that flagged the posting.

Asbestos, a fibrous silicate mineral that was used widely in industrial and commercial purposes such as construction in the United States, has fallen out of favor in many applications after a large body of scientific evidence connecting exposure to serious health concerns. Its use is restricted in the United States, though it has never been outright banned, as it has been in at least 60 other countries.

2. Somebody once said to me that Hitler never did a good thing in his life.

I said that that was absurd -- Hitler needed a functional sophisticated economy to build his war machine and the only way he could get that was to do constructive things that, in some other context, would be seen as good things.

Trump, on the other hand,...
