President Trump, a Good Samaritan

President Trump addressed the Faith and Freedom Coalition this week. During his speech, he had Natalie Harp get up and tell the story of her fight with bone cancer including perspective on her use of the Right to Try law President Trump signed.
MS. HARP: Thank you, Mr. President. You know, we all know the story about the Good Samaritan. But what you don’t know is I was that forgotten person on the side of the road — the victim of medical error, the number-three cause of death under the previous administration — and left to die of cancer.

First, the medical establishment — they came by and they saw me there, so they wrote prescriptions for opioids, and they walked on. Next, the political establishment, they saw me there. And they stopped just long enough to come over and tell me how to die, how to speed up my death so I could somehow die with dignity.

But then, an outsider — my Good Samaritan, President Donald J. Trump — he saw me there and he didn’t walk by. He stopped. And for every single one of us, he gave up his own quality of life so we could live and work and fight with dignity. Because he believes in survival of the fighters, not the fittest.

And so, Mr. President, I have to say you have made a lot of promises to us, and you have kept every one of them. So now we’re going to make you this promise: Just as you fought for us, forgotten America will never forget how you saw us on the side of the road, and you walked over, and you picked us up, and you made us great again. And now we’re going to fight for you, Mr. President. God bless you.
