President Trump is known for making bizarre hyperbolic claims and promises that can often seem too good to be true, largely impossible to accomplish or just plain confusing and divisive.

From building his wall to locking Hillary Clinton in jail, he says one thing, but does another.

At a rally in Ohio, Trump has claimed that he will be curing cancer and AIDS “very soon”. Which would absolutely be welcomed but the president stopped short of exactly how this would be achieved.

The president, who is campaigning for re-election in 2020, blamed the “far-left’s destructive agenda” for poverty and crime in American inner cities. He then reaffirmed his promise to cure AIDS and childhood cancers.

He said:

We will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine. 

I see what they are doing. I see it. They show me. The things we are doing in our country today. There's never been anything like it.

We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America, and curing childhood cancer very shortly.

People on Twitter were obviously dubious...
