US President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he would seek to ban the sale of flavored vaping products to combat the use of e-cigarettes by the youth.

"We are going to have to do something about it," Trump said in a meeting with reporters at the White House. He further called vaping a "new problem in the country."

The Food and Drug Administration will issue new guidelines against the sale of flavored vaping products in the coming months.
