Payam Javan: Conservative journalist said that he owes a large part of his livelihood to Donald Trump. Bill Robinson how he received a diagnosis of end-stage renal disease and chronic kidney disease in the early months of 2017.
Robinson started receiving dialysis right away and awaited the anticipated transplant. His chances of long-term survival were slim without a kidney transplant.
“At least 120,000 Americans are waiting for kidney transplants nationwide, and 33 people lose their lives every day due to renal failure,” he wrote.
Trump did address the lack of kidneys available for donation in an executive order he signed in July 2019. According to the directive, titled “Advancing American Kidney Health,” U.S. policy is to “expand access to kidney transplants by upgrading the organ recovery and transplantation systems and amending out-of-date and counterproductive laws.”
The secretary of Health and Human Services was instructed to “streamline and expedite the kidney matching and delivery process to reduce the discard rate.” Removing matching and delivery process inefficiencies that cause transplant centres to delay acceptance may lessen the negative impact on organ quality of lengthy periods with reduced or cutoff blood flow.
Robinson recently told Trump his story. Trump was shocked to discover that the reporter had undergone a kidney transplant himself.
