And even during one of his debates against Dr. Ben Carson.
Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ben Carson dived into the question of whether vaccines cause autism in the Republican debate Republican debate Wednesday night.

The claim that vaccine cause autism rose to popularity in 1998, when an esteemed medical journal published a paper with the now infamous conclusion: that the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine — administered to millions of children across the globe each year — could cause autism.
