President Trump, who unveiled the plan Wednesday alongside HHS Secretary Alex Azar and acting FDA Commissioner Ned Sharpless, said, "We have a problem in our country".

US President Donald Trump has announced that his administration will ban flavoured e-cigarettes, after a spate of vaping-related deaths.

Melania Trump recently tweeted her concerns over the combination of children and vaping, and at the meeting, the president said, "I mean, she's got a son - together - that is a handsome, young man, and she feels very, very strongly about it".

Joining Mr Trump at the White House on Wednesday, Mr Azar said it would take the FDA several weeks to distribute the new guidance on e-cigarettes.

The "Yes on C" campaign released a statement that read in part, " We support any effort, locally, statewide or federally to keep flavored nicotine & tobacco products off the shelves and out of the hands of kids.

In Alabama, Wilson High School administrators have removed the doors from toilet stalls to prevent students from vaping while in the restroom, the local K-OLD 13 reported on Monday. That's more than three million kids, 78% more than the year before.

The FDA had been looking to limit most flavored e-cigarette product sales, excluding mint and menthol, to online sales with age verification and vaping shops. This comes right after news of a worrying lung disease made the rounds, and just one day after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for a ban on flavored e-cigarettes.

Dan Marchant, UK Vaping Industry Association board member, said: "It is a shame that the U.S. president has been poorly advised on the facts; this decision is based on misleading information and will only serve to deter smokers from making a life-changing switch to a far less harmful alternative". Companies can reintroduce the products in the market after they receive approval from the FDA. He added that flavored products could seek the agency's permission to re-enter the market.

In response to TRT World's inquiry, a Juul Labs spokesperson replied: "We are reviewing the letters and will fully cooperate".

The administration proposal would only affect nicotine vaping products, which are subject to FDA rules.

Severe lung disease in the United States that has claimed at least 6 lives, amid outbreak of vaping products. But he said that if children begin using those products, "we will take enforcement action there also".

However, a recent surge in illnesses, hospitalizations - and even deaths - has shown that there may be much scarier health risks associated with e-cigarettes than we thought. The Truth Initiative, America's largest nonprofit public health organization and a strong critic of e-cigarettes, found that 63% of 15- to 24-year-olds did not realize that Juul products contain nicotine.
