He should - for two reasons:

1. None of that federal tax money goes toward smokers healthcare. None.

2. Since Trump is going to bring back the coal industry - polluting air, water and lungs - he should allow smokers to pay a fair and reasonable price for their tobacco products. I'm sure Appalachia would also greatly appreciate that.

Phillip Morris currently lists total government revenue, including federal, state, local, and sales taxes, as 56.6% of the estimated retail price of a pack of cigarettes.[21]
