Description

President J. Donald Trump on Wednesday signs an executive order allowing the U.S. government to revamp the country’s care for kidney disease. The endeavor will allow more Americans with kidney failure the opportunity for home dialysis and early transplants.

Speaking at the event in Washington, D.C., President Trump assures the American people of his support.

[President Donald Trump, U.S. President]:
"For these patients, their loved ones and for the impacted, all those impacted, by kidney disease, I'm here to say we are fighting by your side and we are determined to get you the best treatment anywhere in the world and we've made a lot of progress. We're with you every step of the way. In a few moments, I'll sign an executive order taking vital steps to increase the supply of kidney available transplants."

President Trump talks about the impact of his executive order.

[President Donald Trump, U.S. President]:
"The result will be more and faster transplants for those in need by streamlining rules to help patients and by incentivizing the supply of kidneys and very substantially incentivizing, I have to add. An estimated 17,000 additional Americans could receive kidneys that they desperately need.”

The U.S. president is optimistic of the outcome.
