We will come up with the cures to many, many problems, to many, many diseases, including cancer and others and we’re getting closer all the time.
We will eradicate AIDS in America once and for all and we’re very close.
We will lay the foundation for landing American astronauts on the surface of Mars.
That's all well and good and if he can do all of those things then he might silence a few of his critics, but the problem here is that one of these isn't even an original policy.
Just last week, Joe Biden said virtually the same thing about curing cancer during a campaign rally in Iowa.
I’ve worked so hard in my career that, I promise you, if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America: We’re going to cure cancer.
Biden's equally bold statement was ridiculed at the time but Trump's same policy looked just a ridiculous after Donald Trump Jr, who spoke before the president at the rally, mocked Biden for this very thing.
Joe Biden comes out. 'Well, if you elect me president, I'm going to cure cancer.'
Wow. Why the hell didn't you do that over the last 50 years, Joe?
Trump Jr's comments are even more distasteful given that Biden's son, Beau, died after a long battle with brain cancer in May, 2015.
The general discourse around the subject of cancer has been criticised on social media.
