Donald Trump Thinks The Mafia Is Libeling That Nice, Safe, Healthy Asbestos. This Is A True Story.

Trump explained the true truth about asbestos in a 1997 book with the catchy, not at all derivative title Trump: The Art of the Comeback, where he told Americans they shouldn’t believe the hype about the supposed health problems associated with asbestos, which is “the greatest fire-proofing material ever used.” While those pussies at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration might insist — as job-killing bureaucrats would — that “asbestos is a known human carcinogen” that “can cause chronic lung disease as well as lung and other cancers,” Donald Trump got straight to the obvious truth: Asbestos is wonderful and perfectly safe, so the only people who would ever say otherwise are either hooked up with or duped by the Mafia:

"I believe that the movement against asbestos was led by the mob, because it was often mob-related companies that would do the asbestos removal. Great pressure was put on politicians, and as usual, the politicians relented. Millions of truckloads of this incredible fire-proofing material were taken to special “dump sites” and asbestos was replaced by materials that were supposedly safe but couldn’t hold a candle to asbestos in limiting the ravages of fire."

4. never been a case of

Mesothelioma in a non-smoker. I use to work in the remediation field several years ago and the company had a huge push to get workers to stop smoking.

There is an unexplained synergy between the inhaled smoke and the asbestos fibers. Believed to be the depressed action of the cilia.
