Donald Trump offers ‘help’ to terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard

Donald Trump offers ‘help’ to terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard

This sad case demonstrates everything wrong with state run medical care: Parents (patients) have no rights, new treatments dismissed …. 

“The couple released an emotional video a day earlier saying they had been told Charlie would die on Friday.

They said they had been denied their final wish to be able to take their son home to die and felt “let down” after losing their legal fight….

The little boy has been at the centre of a lengthy legal battle between his parents, who wanted him to undergo a therapy trial in the US, and specialists at the hospital who said the treatment was experimental and would not help.

Following Mr Trump’s tweet, Theresa May’s official spokesman said that the Prime Ministers thoughts are with Charlie and his family but declined to comment on Mr Trump’s comment.”
