Trump asked a prominent anti-vaxxer to lead a commission on vaccines

President-elect Donald J. Trump has asked   anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to chair a commission on vaccine safety, Kennedy said after meeting with Trump Tuesday.

This appointment is certain to rattle the scientific community, since Kennedy is a well-known vaccine advocate who falsely believes that vaccine ingredients cause autism. This is a claim that scientists have debunked time and time again.  

"President-elect Trump has some doubts about the current vaccine policies and he has questions about it," Kennedy said after the meeting, according to a pool report.
