Democrats tried to block the bill called “Right to Try” but Republicans saw the help it would provide for people who are suffering and want to try experimental drugs. Think about what a nightmare it would be if you wanted to try something experimental as a last ditch effort to help you survive but the government prohibits it. That has happened in the past but will not happen any longer. The bill that President Trump signed today  loosens regulations on experimental drugs and treatments for individuals suffering from terminal diseases. The legislation bypasses the laborious FDA testing process to expedite treatment for the suffering individuals.

Watch the moment President Trump signed the “Right to Try” bill today at the White House. The entire video of the ceremony is at the bottom of the article. You’ll fall in love with the young boy who will benefit from “Right to Try”:


Daily Caller reported:

One of those was Jordan McLinn. McLinn is battling muscular dystrophy, a terminal illness. McLinn and his family have been lobbying Congress to pass federal “Right to Try” legislation.

The 9-year-old McLinn has been the face of the legislation, which Trump signed into law Wednesday.

Jordan McLinn joined Trump onstage, sitting in a wheelchair. Trump told the young boy that he “looked like that, I would have been president ten years earlier.” Trump continued, saying, “If I had that face. If I had that head of hair, I would have been president so long ago. That’s great.”

McLinn eventually joined Trump onstage for the bill signing and cautiously got out of his wheelchair and stood next to Trump. McLinn began to mimic Trump and stood next to him. Trump then gave McLinn a bear hug, to the applause of the audience.
