The Donald Tweeted that vaccinations can lead to autism.

“If I were President I would push for proper vaccinations but would not allow one time massive shots that a small child cannot take – AUTISM,” the business mogul and reality TV star wrote on Twitter Thursday evening.

Trump’s tweet came hours after the release of a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that indicated a 30% increase in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children in America, from one in 88 children having autism two years ago to one in 68 now…

In a study published last year in the Journal of Pediatrics, researchers found no association between autism and the number of vaccines a child gets in one day or during the first two years of the current vaccine schedule.
