Trump reportedly regrets getting involved with the government's vaping policy. However, the president needs to remember that the law is still the law. Unfortunately, the "vape apocalypse" is mandated by federal law and a federal court. Congress has the power to curtail a vaping prohibition through legislation. What is also unfortunate, is that executive power has exceeded the authority of Congress and the courts, which indirectly makes the president, his cabinet, and the responsible regulators de facto lawmakers.
