Natural News: The pro-Trump website that anti-GMO and anti-vaccine liberals love to share

Natural News — and [Mike] Adams’ expanding nebula of self-promoting sites — produces shareable content on buzzworthy health topics such as vaccines, pharmaceuticals and GMOs. Topics that reach across even a deepening partisan divide — stoners and new parent groups, patriots and capitalists, environmentalists and preppers.

While political identity greatly influences Americans’ view on anthropogenic climate change, Pew Research Center reports that liberals and conservatives are almost equally split on issues like GMOs and vaccines.

However, Pew finds that left-leaning Americans have become increasingly concerned about environmental issues over the past decade, while right-leaning Americans have moved in the opposite direction. Adams could be taking advantage of this widening gap in green politics, allowing him to spread his message to seemingly antithetical groups like GMO Free USA.

The online anti-GMO community of nearly 1 million followers has shared numerous Natural News links, despite the sites’ glaring political differences.

Leading up to the U.S. presidential election in 2016, Adams steadied his left-leaning anti-GMO, anti-vaccine readers with, “Did you know that Donald Trump opposes vaccine mandates and rapid-fire vaccine assaults against children? Did you know that Trump serves organic food at many of his resort properties? Did you know that Trump openly opposes the TPP and believes in protecting America’s jobs against the globalist corporations?”
