Okay I have to admit this is really cute. A little boy suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy tries to hug Trump twice….and then Trump realizes and makes his day.

The real achievement is the ‘Right to Try’ bill that Republicans passed and Trump signed:
President Trump signed a law Wednesday that gives terminally ill patients the right to try experimental medicines that lack full approval from the Food and Drug Administration.
The president championed the “Right to Try” legislation and scored a rare bipartisan win with the legislation in Congress, where he demanded Republicans and Democrats come together to pass it during his State of the Union speech this year.
Mr. Trump said that access to experimental treatment was a “fundamental freedom.”
“We’re going to be saving tremendous numbers of lives,” he said at a signing ceremony at the White House, where he was surrounded by lawmakers and several Americans suffering from terminal illnesses.
“The current FDA approval process can take many many years. For countless patients, time is not what they have,” said Mr. Trump.
