President Donald Trump is standing for life.
The United States commander in chief made an eleventh-hour intervention in the case of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard by offering help to save him.
Speaking on Twitter, President Trump said:
“If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.”
It comes as Chris Gard and Connie Yates are spending the last days of their 10-month-old son’s life with him, after being given more time before his life-support is turned off.
Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, is being cared for at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
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.
If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.
