President Trump made several eyebrow-raising claims at his Thursday night campaign rally in Ohio, promising his supporters that he was on the verge of announcing a cure for childhood cancer.
“The things we’re doing in our country today, there’s never been anything like it,” Trump told his thousands of supporters at the U.S Bank Arena.
“We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America, and curing childhood cancer very shortly,” he claimed.

Twitter users were quick to mock the president’s remarks:
Tonight Trump PROMISED to cure childhood cancer in 2 weeks! 2! It’s a noble sentiment but I’m sorry it just doesn’t seem like enough time. Even if he stays up all night EVERY night doing experiments he’s not going to make it ESPECIALLY when you factor in that he’s an idiot. https://t.co/cGCFhqTlgU

2016 he promised Mexico would be paying for a wall
2020 he’s promising cures for AIDS and childhood cancers
