President Trump slams article, says US supports breastfeeding

Breastfeeding basics for mom and baby

While Donald Trump is set to take to the skies over London in the form of an angry baby blimp, his administration has caused multilateral alarm by threatening to launch yet another trade war in Geneva, over breast milk. Similar approaches have been successful in refugee camps, for instance, as well as in post-earthquake Ecuador-which is one of only 23 countries where more than 60% of children under six months are exclusively breastfed.

The United States is a nation where breastfeeding is now on the rise. "One of those giants, Abbott Nutrition, is part of the healthcare multinational Abbott Laboratories that contributed to Trump's inauguration ceremonies in January 2017", Pilkington continues.

The baby formula companies are predominately American or European, including Nestle and Mead Johnson.

Health advocates scrambled to find another sponsor for the resolution, but at least a dozen countries, majority poor nations in Africa and Latin America, backed off, citing fears of retaliation, according to officials from Uruguay, Mexico and the United States. Milk from a mother to a child is also nutritionally specific.

The pal revealed: "One thing he loves about Hailey is that she is so open and not scared of anything and is very independent". You are the love of my life, Hailey Baldwin . "You make me so much better", penned the 24-year-old artist.

According to the article, experts contend that breast milk is especially important for babies in less economically developed countries, where unsafe water supplies can make powdered baby formula risky.

And breastfeeding 'saves lives, protects babies and mothers against deadly diseases, and leads to better IQ and educational outcomes, ' according to a May report from UNICEF. "[Pharmaceutical companies] make a lot more money if they can add nutrients and additives and health claims on a product, put it in a plastic-type container and sell it". This also happens in poor families in wealthier countries.

The risk of reliance on formula is so concerning that the World Health Organization opposes distributing formula even in emergency settings, such as wars, or natural disasters.

Nestlé, Abbott Laboratories and others, in their relentless drive for profits, are trying to expand the $11.5 billion world market in baby formula. The US has denied allegations it threatened any country during negotiations.

Responding to the account of the WHO resolution, US Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Caitlin Oakley said in a statement that the US "has a long history of supporting mothers and breastfeeding around the world and is the largest bilateral donor of such foreign assistance programs".

The resolution had been expected to be approved "quickly and easily", the newspaper said. They reportedly told Ecuador, who planned to introduce the resolution, that if it didn't drop the proposal, the USA would punish the nation with trade measures.

According to the Times, U.S. officials threatened harmful trade practices against Ecuador, which planned to introduce the initiative, unless it withdrew it. If the incident played out the way it was presented, he said, it would show "really how irrelevant the U.S.is becoming as a key player in worldwide forums, because it didn't work".

But more than a dozen participants from several countries-most requesting anonymity out of fear of USA retaliation-told the Times that the American officials surprised health experts and fellow delegates alike by fiercely opposing the resolution.

Trump Tariffs Against China Take Effect
Beijing's response came within minutes as it imposed a series of levies on a similar quantity of United States imports. Donald Trump's trade war could potentially drag in products from other American trade partners, undermining relations.

After this period of confusion, Russian Federation actually ended up introducing a resolution about breastfeeding.
