President Trump Signs ‘Right To Try’ Act, Keeping Another Promise To The American People

“Today I’m proud to keep another promise to the American people as I sign the Right to Try legislation into law.” — President Donald Trump
President Trump kept another promise Wednesday by signing the Right to Try Act into law, while joined by several patients and their families
The president said thousands of terminally ill patients will now have hope and a fighting chance.
The law gives patients the ability to try experimental medications and treatments without waiting years for FDA approval, and without the disappointment of being denied participation in clinical trials.

“With the Right to Try law signing today patients with life threatening illnesses will finally have access to experimental treatments that could improve or even cure their conditions,” explained President Trump. “These are experimental treatments and products that have shown great promise, and we weren’t able to use them before — now we can use them.”
The president also said no one should have to travel to another country to receive the treatment they need.
He thanked Vice President Mike Pence, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, several congressmen as well as state and local leaders for their work on getting the bill passed.
