Well…

It’s happened.

We’ve often joked that, even if Trump cured cancer, the Left would still find something to be outraged about…

And now it looks like we’re going to see EXACTLY that in real life. The American Cancer Society has just announced that the mortality rates for cancer have seen the BIGGEST drop in history in the last year.

This is INCREDIBLE…

While it’s true that the death rates associated with cancer have dropped over the past two and a half decades, the fact remains that the MASSIVE 2.2% decline is an unbelievable feat.

The fact that this happened from 2016 to 2017 is going to stick in the craw of a lot of Liberals…

They always thought their Chosen One, Barack Obama, would have been the one to make an impact on cancer – but the fact that it ended up being Trump is enough to send their TDS into overdrive.

However…

While this drop happened under Trump’s watch…

Does he deserve ANY kind of credit for it?

Well, maybe…

While he obviously isn’t a doctor or researcher sweating over a petri dish in some medical lab, he may have had something to do with it due to his financial policies and his commitment to innovation.

Follow The Money… To Prosperity AND Health

It’s easy to make a connection between the kind of money that bio-med companies are making and being able to funnel into research…

It’s a 1 + 1 = 2 kind of situation.

More money made due to flourishing markets allows these companies to put that money into creating new medications – medications that can then be used to help make Americans better.

And Trump, for sure, has loosened up the purse strings of a LOT of American companies – so yes, he deserves some credit there.

Also, Trump’s commitment to innovation and research should be acknowledged as well…

Since he took office, he’s fostered an atmosphere where innovation is rewarded in the best possible way – with cold, hard cash!

It’s funny what can happen when a president removes the red tape roadblocks that stifle innovation and profit…

Because when you unshackle the process and let capitalism do what it’s supposed to, you get new and exciting developments in technology.

Trump may not be responsible for that – but the fact that he’s created a presidential office for it (White House Office of American Innovation) should tell you how he truly feels about the role innovation plays in his quest to make and KEEP America great.

However, these aren’t the ONLY reasons that Trump could (and should) receive SOME credit for the dropping mortality rates for cancer patients…

He did something in 2018 that could TRULY make a world of difference.

Giving American’s A REAL Shot At SURVIVAL

Have you ever heard of the Right to Try Act?

No? Well…

Thanks to President Donald J. Trump, this act was signed into federal law in May of 2018 and it gives terminally ill patients access to experimental therapies (drugs, biologics, devices) that have completed Phase I testing but have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Basically…

If somebody has been given a terminal diagnosis due to cancer, this law allows them to try ANYTHING available to save their life.

When signing it into law, Trump said, “We will be saving—I don’t even want to say thousands, because I think it’s going to be much more. Thousands and thousands. Hundreds of thousands. We’re going to be saving tremendous numbers of lives.”

Add all these things together…

And the odds are we’ll see ANOTHER massive drop in mortality rates for years to come.

Will it lead to a cure?

Maybe…

But it’s nice having a president that TRULY cares about his constituents, isn’t it?

 

“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R & D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R & D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.” – Steve Jobs
