Trump: We stand ready to assist Charlie Gard — just like the Pope asked

Donald Trump explicitly aligned himself with the parents of Charlie Gard, who have been prevented by UK and EU courts from taking their child to the US for last-ditch experimental treatment for a rare malady. Citing Pope Francis, Trump tweeted that “we would be delighted to … help little #CharlieGard.”

    How does the UK government intend to prevent their citizens from travelling to another country and spending their own money in that other country on anything they want, including medical care?

      They don’t release the boy from the hospital.

      Unlike the United States, you are not allowed to leave the U.K. without a passport, and I assume the permission of the crown, which can be revoked at any time.
      It’s not like here where you can just walk on out the door.

      But the European Human Rights Commission has already promised the body parts to Planned Parenthood for its annual senior executive barbecue.

      Had to correct it for you. 😉

    Brilliantly played, Mr. President. It sends a clear warning to Americans about what they do NOT want in their own healthcare system. It puts the formerly great Britain on notice that it’s human rights abuses are not going unnoticed, and rubs their noses in their own shit, in public no less!

    Trump is fucking brilliant…..

      I feel he is much smarter than anyone is willing to give him credit for being.
